15x10 MT Wheels?

I'm aware that our first gen Ravs have somewhat large brakes and that most 15in wheels probably wouldn't fit. I was told that a 15x10 would fit, I'm not sure what makes this different than any other 15in wheel but I wouldn't like to find out the hard way. Anyway, I was checking out some Mickey Thompsons, the Classic Lock Blacks to be exact. The 15x10 has a bolt pattern of 5 x 4.5in which I believe is the same as 5 x 114.3mm which the Rav4 has? It also has a -48mm offset which is more than the look I am going for. I may need to shop around for some fender flares but surely that can wait. I suppose what I'm looking for right now is some assurance, if anyone knows whether or not these wheels would/should fit it would be a great start

Thanks in advance!

RAV4 have an offset between 33 and 45, your offset is larger. It will, especially on the front, rub heavily. I would advice to look for another rim.

I cannot tell you exactly if the bolt pattern size matches. Since that is very delicate it will need to be a precise match or you better choose a different rim. Because of the 4 wheels being continuously driven you don't want to have lots of stress from not fitting bolt pattern on any of the wheels.

Those Mickey Thompsons have been fitted on a 1st gen, they used a fender flare that is no longer available. It looked awesome.

UPDATE: A little while back I purchased a 15x8 mickey thompson wheel and mounted it on a 235/75r15 BFG all terrain. The wheel fit over the brakes fine with plenty of room to spare, no grinding whatsoever, which I admit surprised me since most people on the internet apparently can't find a 15" wheel that fits. The tire sat fine in the rear wheel well with as much beef sticking out as one could hope for, not too much, although fender flares would do it justice. My disappointment struck just where I thought it would in the front where I will simply state that it rubbed like a bitch. On both wheel wells there is a little plastic hump sticking out which is covering metal which I believe is part of the chassis. Grinding it down possibly could have solved my problem but who knows what kind of misfortune that would bring in the future, I wasn't trying to find out. Perhaps a 2-3" lift could solve the problem, but as usual all we can find is a 1.25" lift which I don't think would be enough. If I had used a different wheel with less of an offset and maybe a 7" width I may have gotten away with it. I've given up for now, I'm settling with my oem 16" wheels, 225/70r16 BFG all terrains, and maybe some wheel spacers after I do some more research. If you can make 235/75r15 happen though then go for it, the look does not disappoint

Yea it sure is pretty awesome, I'm wondering if the 15x8 and 15x10 have different offsets which could have led to mine rubbing. Plus the fact that I was trying to fit all terrains might have something to do with it whereas every widebody I've ever seen on the internet has radials
