15 inch rims on a JK

I was wondering if 15 inch rims fit on the JK's, what about caliper issues? Any info would be greatly appreciated. I have 37's from my TJ

there are 2 issues with this.

1. Wrong bolt pattern from a TJ to a JK

2. They will not clear the calipers

Yes 15s will fit, just got to find 5 on 5. I sa ythey will fit cause many of the lift manufacturer JKs are running 15" wheels.

I believe that Chevy Tracker / Suzuki Vitara / Grand Vitara run 5 on 5" boltpattern wheels.

Those vehicles are quite easily found in wreckers, and some of them have decent looking rims too!
