16" rims for a 2005 1500

Asked by May 11, 2011 at 08:40 PM about the 2005 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE 4WD Extended Cab LB

Question type: Car Customization

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.
