Military take off wheels are going to have to be re-centered to 8x170 lug pattern because the military trucks are 8x6.5.

Not all 16.5s lack the "safety seat", I have a set of 16.5 Centerline Convo Pros that have them. Further, unless you're going to do some hardcore wheelin, it not having the "safety seat" won't really matter.

The real question is if 16.5s will clear the rotors on a 2005 and up. I can't remember when 17/18s became the standard wheel because of larger brakes.

The 05's and up are a min of 17". You might be able to put on a spacer to make room for the larger rotor.

But does anyone know if a 16.5 will clear those brakes? How much clearance is there between the wheel and the caliper when rolling a 17 inch wheel? If it's greater than 1/4", a 16.5 should fit.

There is not enough clearance, mine came with 17's and they barely clear the caliper (less than 1/4").

The only way to run 16.5's would be to use wheel spacers so that they will sit out far enough to clear the calipers.
