thanks to fellow newhilux member rn41leroy, who purchased a set of 15x8 steel wheels and says they fit, I did some further investigation for the fellow newhilux members that may be interested in this option and heres what the verdict is.

Infinity wheels Sells 15x8 steel wheels that fit on the 05+ model hilux's and clears the front brakes.....I sent them an email very early this mornign and here is the reply I got from them -
THANKYOU FOR YOUR ENQUIRY REGARDING 15X8 WHEELS AND THEIR SUITABILTY FOR HILUX 05 ONWARDS.
YOUR FREIND IS CORRECT OUR 15X8 ZERO OFFSET WILL FIT THE LATEST HILUX. THE REASON NO ONE ELSE DOES IS BECAUSE OUR CENTRES ARE J CENTRES.THEY HAVE A LARGER DIAMETRE THROUGH THE CENTRE. THIS ENABLES OUR WHEEL TO ESCAPE THE CALIPER ON THE FRONT AND CLEAR THE REAR BRAKE DRUM. IN FACT ALL OUR WHEELS REGARDLESS OF SIZE IE. 15X7, 15X8,16X7,16X8 WILL FIT THIS VEHICLE WITHOUT HITTING THE CALIPER. YOU MUST REMEMBER HOWEVER, THAT UNLESS IT HAS FLARES LIKE THE SR5 SOME OF THESE WHEELS WILL HANG OUT THE GAURDS, INCLUDING THE ONE YOU ASK ABOUT. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE FLARES THEY WILL HANG OUT. THERE IS ALSO THE QUESTION OF LEGALITY.IN OUR RANGE,ONLY WHEELS WITH A OFFSET OF POSITIVE 30 ON SR ,AND WHEELS OF POSITIVE 13 ON THE SR5 WILL BE TECHNICALLY LEGAL AS YOU CAN ONLY INCREASE THE TRACK BY 26MM ON VEHICLES WITH INDEPENDENT SUSPENSION.YOU AND I BOTH KNOW THAT 90% OF THE 4X4S OUT THERE ARE TECHNICALLY ILLEGAL, THAT DOES NOT STOP THE GENERAL PUBLIC FROM PUTTING THEM ON THEIR VEHICLES.
AS FAR AS HOW MUCH. MAX WE ARE WHOLESALERS NOT RETAILERS.IF YOU LET ME KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE I CAN CERTAINLY POINT YOU TO A TYRE RETAILER WHO CAN SELL YOU THE WHEELS. YOU SAY YOUR FREIND PURCHASED HIS WHEELS FROM US? IF THAT IS THE CASE HE MUST HAVE BOUGHT THEM FROM OUR ONLY RETAIL STORE WHICH IS AT CABOOLTURE.
So if you need a set, and these are 15x8 in a zero offset, hit up your local tyre retailer to order you a set from Infinity Wheels. As a second set 33/12.5x15's would look great on a new lux or even 35/10.5x15's.....
