    So i went to buy a new set of wheels and the guy told me i had to buy 17s because the caliper will rub if i buy ANY set of 16" wheels.......?
    I told him hes full if it and i bought my 16s anyways and they are just fine.

    Has anyone heard of anything like that before?

    You're half right. No problem with 16" wheels, but many 15" wheels won't clear the brake calipers.
    No.....some 15's......no 14's.
    **EDIT** Sorry Speed Freak, I just looked at your specifications and for a 5 lug, 14" wheels may be a possibillity, but not for a 6 lug.

    4 wheels parts had a 20% off some procomp series 8069 wheels that i had to jump on.... the deal was coming to a end. soo i ended up buying it from him. But he wasnt the only guy at 4WP who said that tacos where having problems with 16's. But when i test fitted my wheels, i called 4WP and i told them that they fit like a charm.
