Technical Wheel Fitment Question

I have a 2007 C.C. 4x4 Powerstroke and want to change out stock 17" wheels for 16" wheels. Will 16" wheels fit on the 2007 Powerstroke? or will the brake calipers be in the way? I spoke w/Centerline Wheels and suggested I speak with my tire people. I called Jimmy's Tire in San Clemente and they had no ideal. I also spoke with my tire shop (Bymar) in Mission Viejo and they believe there might be a issue. They even tried to find me a 16" wheel to see if it would work, unfortunately they didn't have one laying around.

So has anyone here downgraded to a 16" wheel with a later model Powerstroke?

You might ask why do I want to down grade? Heres my answer:

Everyone I've spoken with has asked me that same question, why? Especially in this day & age, most people go with a bigger wheel upgrade. Personally I like the look better, smaller wheel/bigger tire, also the cost of tires. I want to purchase the 315/75R16 Toyo M/T's, less expensive than buying 35x12.50R17 which will save me $50.00 a tire. I also off road quite a bit, I'm a geologist and primarily work in the deserts & hills of CA & NV. I've always had better luck going thru rocky/ruff terrain with that combo.

Thanks,

Tim

I have 16" wheels on my 04 and I doubt they changed the brakes on our trucks from 99-07 so you should be good to go
