Re: 16" rim Stock downsizing to 15" Rim

The clearance from the calipers for the 12" rotors to 15" wheels is very tight. Since most aftermarket wheels have less backspacing than factory, they usually clear easily. My guess is that the ProComps will clear.
There are a few 15's that will hit though including some stock Ford aluminum wheels with 4.5" BS. FX4 Alcoas are the exception and were fitted with the 12" brakes at the factory. It all depends on the shape of the backside of the wheel and the backspacing.
