Default 15's WONT FIT!!!!!!

I was hoping to downsize to a 15 inch rim vs a 16 for cost reason. Anyways, is anyone else having the same issue with there 07 sports 4x4? Now its like an extra 400 bucks for wheels and tires....

I tested mickey t's and a 15 inch steely that was close by. I was looking to go with DC 2's and all the place had on hand was the mickey t's.

I have an 06 4x4 which the same exact thing as an 07 and I have 15s. You need more backspacing. I have 15x8s, with 3.75 backspacing with no issues

My procomp's are 15x8s with 3.75 backspacing as well, exact same as Dixie's.
When you test fit did you tighten the lug nuts before you tried turning the wheel? And did the caliper actually scrape the inside of the rim or just look like a tight fit. Lots of people on here are running 15" with no issue, clearance to the caliper is fairly tight but mine fit without issue.

No, the guy didnt tighten the lug nuts, he said he had the same issue with a newer ranger as they now have 4 disc brakes. I afraid to buy the 15s and not fit as there is a 20 percent restocking fee or something stupid like that
