i have noticed that the smallest wheel everyone is using is 16". i was wondeirng would a 15" wheel fit an a LC(HDJ81)? i was planning to take off my wheel from my 4runner before i sell it. i didnt want to leave my wheels and tires on the 4runner since they are only 2 months old so its practically almost brand new.

15" rims will fit (with certain backspacing) on NON Full Floating Drum Brake equipped rear ends only. The 15" rims will NOT fit on the Full Floaters with the disc brakes!

I ran into this when i was going to install an FF/DISC 80 rear in my 60

Honestly got no clue!

With the 15" wheels though, you have to be careful on the backspacing with the front calipers as well.

Why the must for 15's and not 16's? Granted 15" tires are MUCH cheaper and more plentiful!

PERSONALLY, i would keep the wheels and tires on the 4runner and just go with 16's on the 80. That way if you ever do a disk brake of FF swap, you will be ok.

Or just say F it, cut your OME's in 1/2 and go with 28's like i did:

AFAIK All early (I'm assuming that you're buying a 1990) JDM HDJ81 have 15" wheels as stock. 16" split wheels are usually an aftermarket option. You shouldn't have a problem with the 15" wheels.

The USD equivilent is a 1990-1991 FJ80 and it came with 15" wheels. You'll notice that most JDM HDJ81's have 4 Runner wheels. The rest are aftermarket or optional.
