    I'm getting conflicting info from wheel dealers and hoping someone here may know. I have a brand new 2010 DC Off Road 4X4 and want to put this wheel on with my stock tires. (will put a lift and bigger tires on later). One dealer says this wheel won't clear the calipers another says it will...Anyone know?

    3" lift rims tires
    i have 2 sets of 16x8 rims that i run. one is a moto metal, one is pro comp.
    the moto metal seems like it rubs on the inner lip of the rim, but not on the caliper.
    I think it is such a small clearance between the rim and caliper that rock will get stuck and scrape the inside. but the procomps dont... idk the difference.

    heres a pic to show you what im talking about.

    Thanks, I think I'll hold off and get 17's and new tires...and then try to sell my stock wheels and tires....I was hoping I could get away with just new rims....Seems like it's just not a chance worth taking...
