Default Does a 16 inch wheels fit on my truck?

I have a 2006 SLT Ram big horn edtion, so it has stock 20's on it. I want to do a new wheel and tire combo and I wanted to know if a 16 inch wheel would clear my brake calipers? Please let me know what you guys think.

thanks dave,

Nope. 17" is the smallest rim that will fit and even then you will need to check for caliper clearance.

A 4x4 shop around here shaves the calipers to run 16's. I asked when I was buying new tires and that's what I was told. They grind them down and just paint them. 16's then clear just llike 17's do. My stock 17's had just about a fingers space in between.

Can you tell me how much must be ground off, and does it cause any issues with durability? I have some almost new studded snow tires I wanted to use on my 2012 1500 with 20" rims, but they are an LT245/75R-16 tire and so would have to go onto 16" rims.
