Raceline Raptor 16x8

I'm looking at a couple wheels, one of which is the 16x8 Raceline Raptor. My truck is a TRD, and I thought I read somewhere that the TRD calipers are larger and some 16 inch wheels may not clear them. Has anyone had any issues clearing their calipers with these wheels?

Has nothing to do with trd or not trd, they all have the same brakes, but yes, some 16's do not clear the calipers. I would call raceline and ask, or try to find someone on here who is running them in a 16.

also just on a side note those bolts look plastic to me. i say this cause i was looking at the atc ledge last year and the faux bolts on the wheels where not even metal i thought that was very strange.

my current procomp wheels are drilled and tapped with 10 mm bolts all around they are even recessed i just thought it was strange and could imagine them breaking off right away. as a matter of fact after talking to some guys on tw i found out a lot of guys where getting there little bolts broken off as they are mounting tires on the wheel.

just a thought man, they look good though
