15x8 Fitment on 2008+ rangers

So I can't find a definitive answer on any forums weather a 15x8 wheel Fits on newer rangers. Mines a 2009 FX4 with stock 16" Y-spokes. What I have found is people with older rangers saying they will fit however, I've read that the rotor or caliper size has increased to 12" so fitting 15's is unknown to me. The year they increased the size of brakes on all rangers in unknown to me as well.

I need to know if anyone has actual fit them on a 2008+ ranger.

I'm wanting the MT Classic II so if you have made those wheels work, even better.

it depends on the wheel. some 15s clear the 12 inch brakes, others do not. just buy one before you get the set and try it on. doesn't fit take it back.

Thanks for the pic. did the 2wd have same size brakes?

I would order one but I cant find a dealer close to me that will let me do that (test fit and return).

I just took a look at my 16x7 stock Y spokes and those calipers barley fit in those 16's. Makes me very skeptical 15's fit.

No. The 01+ 2WD have 11 inch brakes, the 03 1/2+ (you) have 12 inch brakes. It depends on the 15 inch wheel. Some fit, some do not. All the 01+ 2WD guys that are telling you they have no problem running 15s is because the truck is different.

I'm running 15x8 on a 2007 4x4 for my winter tires. They fit, but it's pretty tight.
Like others have said, it really depends on the wheel so test them first.

i had 15's at one point. 15x8 steelies, no prob since the weights were on the outside of the wheel. but when i got aluminum wheels the tape weights hit the brake caliper.

Can you put the weights on the outside on Alum wheels? I wonder if it takes ALOT of weight to get 32's balanced.....?

I just don't care for the backspacing of the Y spoke. Makes the truck look so weak and skinny. I've never heard anything good about wheel spacers so that's out.

If these 15x8's don't work I might look into the MT Classic II 16x8 4/7/16 backspacing. Not the ideal backspace but I found this car domain and the wheels look good.

Most but not all rims you can... but it looks alot nicer if you just balance them on the backside of the rim. That's the way mine are and it didn't take too much to get my 33's balanced.

yea, the weights can be on hte outside. it's those ugly steel ones that look like growths.

that yellow truck in the cardomain looks like scott's stance. i know he didn't get MTs but they look similar to that. search for dixie boyles or something close. once you type in dixie it should come up. he's got a lot of pictures and might be able to help you
