Possible downgrade [Will they fit?]

Always liked these 14" wheels, but not sure if they'll fit an '08 2wd?




Mounting a 225/75-14" tire (hard to find) would get about the same tire height and a softer ride, but just not sure the wheel would clear the brake calipers. And I'm trying to de-chrome as much as possible. Thanks.

You realize you could just do a 15 American Racing Outlaw II and have the exact same look right?

But anyways, I doubt that the factory 14's would clear the new style rotors.

That's my Plan B if needed, but I was going for a softer ride if I could get 14's to fit.
