    There's a bunch of people on here running them in that size and were told the same thing. I don't think you will have any problems. If they don't fit send them back!

    Your truck comes with 16x8 unless you have a Sport.

    right but the procomps may not be bored out enough to clear the caliper

    True, the caliper does come close with the stock 16x8s. I heard if you use the 1069 wheels you have to shave our caliper 1/16 but i heard other procomps fit. pro comp makes a wierd 16x8

    the back spacing is 4.5" on them. i see quite a few people running them on here but i can't ever tell if anyone is doing any mods to make them fit. from looking on here i would say they work no problem, but the guys at four wheel parts say they wont. im going to go with the guys on here over the stupid four wheel parts guys because i only hear bad things about them. i should be going to the shop to test fit them in two day so we'll see....

    do you think it would make a huge difference that mine is only a two wheel dive and yours is a 4x4? im not really familiar with difference up in the front end
