Will 16" or 17" wheels fit?

My truck (08 XLT Crew Cab 4x4) came with 18" wheels. I found some 5 spoke wheels that are 17s and was wandering if anyone knows if they will clear the brakes. Here are some pics of what I found:

Most likely they will not. But you could always check clearances with your 18's on and have a better idea.

Preciate it, I know that there was an option for 17s when I looked for tires, I just wasn't 100% sure if they would fit. Do you know if I can put 35" tires on them and not rub? I was looking to get 35x12.50x15, but I might have to do some calculations and get some that aren't as wide.
