Will 16" wheels fit on a Sport that came with 17's?

Yesterday I went down to 4wheel parts and was talkin about a wheel tire package and the guy said I can't go with 16" wheels on my truck because the brake caliper will hit. Now I'm thinking he's full of crap, the sport and off road came with the same brakes RIGHT?

Here's my dilema; KM2's are on national back order and Dick Cepecks mud terrain don't come in 285/75-17 so I want to go with 285/75-16's.
Any ideas from you guys?
Thanks-

Are you talking about smaller as in width? or diameter?
for example, the km2's in a 16 are listed as a 33.1" and the 17 is listed as a 33" tall tire.
In the Cepeck Mud's the 16 is a 33.2" and the 33x12.5-17 is a 32.8(i think)
Would the truck look stupid going with the 16? what about an 18?
