ProComp 7069 16s on a JK?

I am considering buying this wheel to replace the 18 in factory wheels on my Sahara.

Pro Comp 7069-6873 - PRO COMP Series 7069 1-Piece Flat Black Finish Alloy Wheel with 5x5 Bolt Pattern in 16x8 Size & 4" Backspacing - Quadratec

I was told there is some concern with 16 and 15 in aftermarket wheels rubbing on the calipers on JKs. They have 17 in versions of the wheel but I like the look of smaller wheels and more tire. Not to mention the 16 is less expensive.

Any thoughts or concerns? Anyone with a JK have these?

Thanks!

I've got the 17" 7069s on my 2012, absolutely love the look. Just got them a few weeks ago and havent changed my profile pic yet tho. Got em at Morris 4x4, gave me a great deal.

16s will fit without any rubbing issue. many 15s will also. the only downside to the smaller wheel size is down the road - if you upgrade tie rod ends or brake kits... you're likely going to have to revert back to 17" wheels.
