    Anyone know if 16in chev rims will fit the new style with 17's or are the breaks too big on the new style?

    I'd imagine it'd fit, as the larger (3/4 and 1 ton SRW) trucks come with 16" steel wheels standard, I'd say you'd be fine putting on 16" rims. Remember though- you'll need to make up the difference with the tires (so the diameter of the tire is consistent), otherwise your speedo will be off.

    The 17's are an option, 16's are standard. Brakes are the same on the Classic to NBS anyway.
