is it true that gu patrols cant run a 15inch rim due to the brakes calliper being to big?

The 4.8L patrols have bigger brakes and can't run 15's.
All other models can run 15" steelies.

Re: can gu run 15inch rim

I used my 15" alloys on my GU. They cleared the calipers, but only just!! At the OBC I picked up an unlucky pebble that got jammed between the caliper & rim it cut the rim out.
After That race I went to 16" rims.

Re: can gu run 15inch rim

i run -30 offset rims on my GU

i dont get any scrubbing and they sit inline with the factoru flares (99 GU ST)

-30 aparently will fit onto the 4.8 aswell but not 100% sure
