    Right now I have stock P265-65-R17.... Is it possible to go down to a 16 inch wheel>? If so will I encounter any problems, is it good to do or should I simply stay away from doing it

    It depends what wheel your going with(offset, backspacing). I've read you cant go with 16" wheels unless you trim the brake caliper a bit.
