    so like title says,

    bought some 17x8 black steelies, and went to test fit, and it wouldnt even seat on the hub bc of the caliper.. even with a 1/4" spacer (not that i would run one) but just for shits and giggles, didnt fit..

    so im asking you.. how in the sam hell are you guys running steelies???

    Remove the calipers!!!! I assume it's the backspacing. Wheelers fit and so do FJC stockers.

    Happened to me too. I purchased pro comp steelies 16x8 (i believe), with 4.25" backspacing and they would hit the caliper.
