I had planned on getting 16x8 MotoMetal 955s and 285/75s. However, I just got off the phone with 4WheelParts and they told me that I would have to step up to 17x9 (4.53 backspace and -12mm offset) rims if I go aftermarket. Said the calipers will get in the way (specifically on the '09).
I have heard about people having to grind the calipers, but I don't think they were talking about the '09s. I asked him about it and he said that there just isn't enough there to grind.
Has anyone been able to get 16x8 on an '09?
I was also thinking about stepping up to the 305/65s since I'm doing the 17x9.
Thoughts? I'm lifting the front about 3 1/2" with total chaos UCAs.
