Possibly, but it comes as a set and it seems seems others in the forum have run this size tire on this width rim based on searching. My primary concern is the offset, especially for the rear.

As someone in the market for a 6sp 04-06 vert, have to concur. Prices have gone up in the past couple of months on verts, but $25K for an '01 is not likely to generate any serious interest.
