No to 15's Smallest rim you can run is 17.


As far as the Caliper, I am pretty sure they do, but read through the thread to make sure... I don't have these brakes so I can't confirm.

If you had large wheel balance magnets though that could hit on the caliper itself.

^My question for you, Justin, is, do you think my 17's will fit over your brakes?

Both of my 17's fit fine. Both my aftermarket set as well as the OEM's. It;s all about the spoke design, so I am pretty sure any somewhat current 17's from Toyota will work.

Anyone know if this would work on a 1st gen Avalon?
I would think since it works on a 99 Camry it should. Anybody know anyone that has tried it?

So am I correct that this works on the gen 6 camry? Directly bolts on? I've been researching 2011 highlander calipers n rotors n pads but what about the caliper bracket? Is that from the highlander too? How about the brake booster or master cylinder, do these need to be changed as well? Since going from single piston to 2 piston?Any help is appreciated?

Yeah I did the upgrade to the Highlander calipers just a few months ago and it was very straight forward. The calipers, pads, and rotors (other than the generic stuff like lube, etc.) are all you need. No need to mess with the brake booster, master cylinder, etc. Depending on the mileage/age of your car, it might be worth replacing the brake fluid.

Nice I think imma do this work when I gets a bit warmer outside. I need to get The caliper bracket from the highlander also, correct? How was the braking performance after the swap? Was there a noticable difference in stopping power? By chance do u have pics of this mod?
