16" rims for a 2005 1500
I purchased 16" wheels for my Sierra and my mechanic told me that these wheels
will not fit because they interfere with the brake calipers. Has anyone run into this
problem? Is there a way to get around it without going to great expense?
If the wheels interfere w/ the calipers, then they are the wrong wheels. If you pursue it, you can get spacers and end up w/ vibrations, damaged studs and possible death from wheel coming off. I was in the business for 32 years. Trust me. If you bought new, return them. If used try again. If someone is "your mechanic", then you should trust them.
dont sound right,theese vehicles came with16 to 18 inch wheels.are they factory or aftermarket,eather way they should fit.
no they won't fit I have same problem with mine depends on the year which I did not know until after I bought used rims for mine now i'm looking for 16inch rims for a 99 gmc. I feel you.
I have a 99 GMC Sierra Bought an 05 05 has 17" wanted to use my 16'' tires. the wheels won't work. interferes with the brakes. looking for new 16" myself. i have 3 complete sets of 16" tires including studded snows so it's cheaper for me to buy new wheels and use the tires
