Quick explorer rear 8.8 question

I was looking to put a 95+ explorer 8.8 in my truck. I was wondering, will a 15 inch wheel fit over the caliper on these axles? Thanks

I have a 98 Explorer 8.8 under my green 94 and have 15X8 Jeep Canyon wheels on it.

In case you needed to hear it again, yes they will fit.
Explorers came with 15" wheels for years.

Sorry, searched, didn't find anything and just thought of having that problem one day before I went to get my axles. I Know the 91-94 explorers with drums came with 15s but I wasn't sure about the disk explorers. I know that a lot of them came with 16s. Just making sure. Thanks

You will find some rims that won't fit over the caliper, most if not all are after market. There is a pretty good write up on one of the other forums about that.
