Came across a good deal locally to get 4 16" rims and brand new tires for a great price. Was wondering if this is even advisable going up from 15's? I know it's the same bolt pattern but I was specifically worried about fender clearance with my 2" lift. Can someone either offer advice and/or mods, please point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance.

edit: they are coming off a wrecked 98 Grand Limited. The tires and rims are pristine.

Overall tire diameter is what matters. The wheel size is inconsequential when it comes to fitment

Guess I'll find out when I go out there to get them on Sunday. He is asking for 4 tires and rims what I would pay for just 2 rims in this condition. If they won't work, I'll just sell them to someone else.

Do you have the factory privacy glass in your '01? Is 20% what you would use to match it?

When I swapped mine from the tinted glass, supposedly just means UV protection, to the privacy glass I had no intentions of tinting the front windows. But in case I decide to now I know what percentage to use. And of course that is if I try to do it myself. Thank you for that.

That is right. Remember the rule. No pic means it did not happen. LOL.

So because the guy selling the tires and rims I wanted flaked on me, I decided it was time for some SeaFoam. While checking fluids I noticed my rad fluid was brown, so I changed that. Also found and cleaned up the two grounds near the PCU. Then detailed the engine bay from the mess I had made before it got dark.

All in all, disappointing that I couldn't get the 16" rims but a pretty good day nonetheless.
