16” wheels on a 3rd gen

I know 16s won’t clear the calipers, but I’ve got a buddy who put 16s on his newer Chevy Silverado, all he had to do was run 2” spacers, but I hate spacers. I just like the old school look and I’m getting tired of the big rims. I was wondering if I could get a set of 16x14 or 16x16 with 2” backspacing instead of the normal 4” backspacing and clear the calipers.

This takes a lot of research to sort out including buying test rims to check back spacing. I've sorted the rears to run 15" rim. The front will be another story. But the lesson learned on the rears was finding the right brakes. A 30" tall front runner would be a great help. Then using the size rim for the tire would give us a clue of what needs to be done for fitment.
