I don't think they clear the brakes.

Well, I plan on lifting the jeep and running 33's anyway but I came across a really nice set of rims for a really good deal. hes holding them for me for two more hours until I can confirm if they will fit or not. so if anyone has any information its greatly appreciated.

No, you cannot run 16" wheels. If you have the standard brakes instead of the heavy duty brakes, you can run 17", however.

You may or may not need to do some body modification and/or play with spacers if you go up to 33s. 32" is the practical limit, but the design of the tire edges will also come into play.

Thanks! I have been through the " 33 rubbing nightmare" with other vehicles. always some modifications required. i am hoping I wont have to modify anything this time with bilstein 5100's plus the RRO spacer lift. That should give 3 inches up front.
