    i've heard some that do, and some that don't. your best bet is to try them on before you buy them.

    Negative. You can't go smaller than stock due to brake calipers and such. Bobby ran into that when I found him a deal on wheels and tires.

    It is hit or mis. Some do while others don't. I would test fit first.

    Yep, everything I've checked out for the JK says that some 15s will fit and some won't, depending on how they are designed and clear the calipers.......

    Hey Dragline!!!

    From what I have seen of JKs wheeling so far...maybe we could look at retrofitting these wheels on to one for an offroad performance upgrade. LOL

    Marines...shoot me a PM if you have not received an invitation to the Jarhead Jeepers social group on this site and would like to be a member.
