16” wheels on 2018 jk Sahara

I’m looking to put 16” wheels with 35” tires just curious to know if 16s will clear the calipers

Depends on the wheels. There are probably 16s that will, but not all 16s will. My 16s required a couple minutes with a grinder on one of the corners of the front calipers only. Put the wheels on, it seemed to clear fine, but while driving I heard a scraping sound. Pulled the fronts and the calipers were scratched a little, showing me exactly what area was touching. Ground it, problem disapperead.
