will 16.5 wheels work on my truck??

Just wondering if a 16.5 will fit on my truck around the calipers. I have a 2007 with the 20" wheel package. I really want to run a 35 Bogger as I have had them on all my other trucks and really do love the tire. However I dont think I want to get a big lift just to jump into a 37" tire where it gets into the 17" wheel set. Just wondering. Thanks guys

One thing to keep in mind is that not all aftermarket 17s will clear either.

thanks for the heads up!

as for the 37" Id love to run that tire, but in all honesty I was trying to avoid the 8" lift lift that would most likely be needed to clear the thick treads like the Bogger. So I think I am going to lean more towards the 4.5" to maybe 6" at the most...but like always I guess well see...

you should eb able to clear the 37s with a 6 inch. they are only 13.50 so you should be fine.
