    ehh some 16 inch rims do rub on the calipers, and the solution is grinding down the caliper

    Spacers will increase the clearance between the wheel and the caliper, but will DECREASE the clearance between the tire and the fender well.

    Bottom line, those are the wrong rims.

    What you want, roughly, is a 16x8 rim, 4.5 backspacing, 0 to -6mm offset (note the minus sign; that's negative 6!) 6 on 5.5 bolt pattern, and (I THINK 4.25" hub bore)

    Even at those specs, different wheels are cast with different designs and on some of them the spokes just hit the caliper. Nothing to do in that case but pick a different wheel. Some folks will grind down the caliper in this case. I personally wouldn't do that, given how many wheels there are out there that will fit without having to grind them.

    Not quite. What he wants is a 16" rim with 4.5" backspacing. The offset will depend on the rim width. For an 8 inch wide rim, 4.5" backspacing is 0 offset.

    Are the wheels rubbing on the outside face of the calipers or on the top edges where it's of the calipers. If it's on the outside face of the calipers you should be able to clear it up with spacers.
    Or you could just to get you $ back and get the correct OS/BS.
