    I am having a hard time finding any difinitive answers and I am a little tired of serching, so I thought i would risk any flameadge and ask.

    Can one run a 15" wheel on an 80 originally equiped with 16"s?
    Does anyone make a spool for the rear of a FZJ80?
    Thanks

    I think Lance Williams at Iron Pig Offroad was working on a spool for 80 series.

    15" rims will typically hit the rear calipers. Some have aggressively ground down the calipers and made them fit. You may just want to try some from a buddy's Toyota that has 15" rims and see how bad you think it is. You can also try some moderate wheel spacers, 1.5" or so, and see if that helps.
