15" Wheels onto '95 Discovery 3.9 V8i?

I'll have a look what the clearance is like on the stock 16" alloys but does anyone know if 15" wheels would fit around the calipers on the V8i? I'd be considering steel wheels, ET0 and at least 8" wide. Body rubbing isn't a concern on this project!

Yes, a common fit here though I think they are a different offset but cannot remember what. Same brake clearance as a Defender I guess.

8x15 are common, though on the Discovery people sometimes use 7x15 to minimise body rub. My father's vehicle ran 30x9.50R15 on 7x15 rims on standard suspension with no problem, many folks lift the suspension and put 8x15 with either 31x10.50R15 or 33x12.50R15 on. The latter size are almost the default fit on 110s that go off road here due to the soft peaty ground.

Thanks. Currently looking at a few ideas and couldn't remember if there was something different about the V8i spec models brakes.

Not as far as I am aware. I had a 96MY V8 for a few years and the pads etc were certainly the same as a Tdi, nothing obviously different to the standard vehicle. I never put 15" wheels on mine as I wanted the alloys, but I don't think it would have been a problem.
