Default 15" rims on my 06 ranger!

Been told that 15" rims won't fit my 06 2wd ford ranger. I have a few buddies that run 15's but I have been told from the local shop that 15" rims will not fit over the callipers. I seem to think they will fit. Anyone know anything about this? A 06 a funny year or so thing? Please let me know what you think before I do a test fit.
Thanks!

Yeah and I know some of them came with 15's but mine says on the inside of the door that 16" are stock size. I picked up a set of duratrac that take a 15" rim and just called the local tire shop over the weekend and they told me that 16" is the smallest rim that my truck will take. I have a few buddies with rangers. 03,09,11 and both the 03,09 are 2wd and came stock with 15" rims

I know the 2010 & 2011's have had issues due to the rear disc brakes.

Here is a thread where Vista4.0 has stated there has been issues with certain 15's on the 2004 & newer Rangers. I know all sorts of people run them (Ranger Wheel Reference Page)

Seems to depend on the model of the wheel.

15" wheels on an 08 FX4 that came with 16's?

I know on the pre-04's they fit (I ran them on my 2003).

There has been previous input that on the 2004 & newer models something changed & might cause issues depending on the brand & I know for sure things changed on the 2010 & newer models.

99% of 15" wheels will fit on 04+ with the bigger brakes. Just test fit before mounting the tire to it.

Thanks, its a combination of led replacement bulbs and blue and white led strips. It wasnt that bad. Alot of testing to get it to look decent.
