Icon5 15" rims?

I have a ranger with the super lift 4inch lift kit with 16 inch rims and i was wondering if i could put 15 inch rims on it? i was looking at it today and it looks like theres not a lot of room between the rim and the brake caliper and ball joint.

Thanks.

rangers come stock with 14's and 15's. the only thing you would have to worry about is the back spacing.

they'll fit fine just remember the bolt pattern is 5x4.5 and the lower the backspacing the more they'll stick out. stock wheels are 4.5" of backspacing

It's a very tight fit... So close that you may not be able to get stick on wheel weights depending on the rim!

Today I found out the hard way that the 15 alcoas can not use stick on wheel weights on the outer lip on the inside of the rim. They are fine near the "spoke" though.
