I don't believe 16" will clear the brakes. 17's will fit though.

if i am not mistaken there will have to be a major brake job done in order for 16's to fit.

That's my question, why 16"? Now 15's you are getting some where... Wilwood has brake conversions and maybe you can retro convert to an earlier 90' model rear brake.

That's the size rim that has the widest selection of slicks/DR's available. My 17's has very limited size /compound available.
