    Hey guys,
    I am in the process of shopping around for some new wheels and tires. I've narrowed it down to the Pro Comp 7089 and the tires will most likely be the BFG MT or AT. I drive an 05 Tacoma Sport. I was thinking about going from the 17" down to the 16" wheel because I like the look of the larger sidewall and I also like the fact that the wheels and tires are cheaper in the smaller sizes. Has anyone done this in the Sport model and have you experieced any issues? I've heard that the calipers may need to be grinded down but I havent heard it from anyone that has actually had to do it.
    Thanks in advance.

    the caliper grinding down depends on the rim. i'm running 16" pro comp/wheelers alloys and 17" pro comp 7089s w/ no run
