If you're talking about the SS/TC, 16"s are not going to fit.

Right.

Anyways, the SS/TC is completely incompatable with anything smaller than 17", period. If you don't believe me, look at the sticky for compatable rims on CSS. The brembos are too large and the top of the calipers on the front pair WILL make contact with the inside of the rim. The rears will fit as they're smaller calipers, but the fronts are too large. You can run 16"s all day on the 05-07 SS/NA and SS/SC, but the 08+ SS/TC will not work with 16" rims.
