Has anyone checked if 17" wheels would fit?

Still trying to figure out my snow wheel/tire strategy. I usually downsize my wheels just so the tires are a little cheaper, and offers better protection from potholes.

Has anyone tried taking some measurements to see if there's enough space for the brakes when considering 17" wheels?

It has been covered in here but may be hard to find. Basically, there are essentially no 17’s with sugmfficient clearance around the rear brakes. So 18’s are, for now, the smallest viable option. In time, maybe a very specific list of 17’s with just barenly enough clearance can be made. That short list might also be an expensive list.

Ick? I think it would be awesome actually for 17’s and a lifted, rally look 3. Like, I’d maybe do it! This with a lift and smaller wheels to get more tire would be cool. The extra lights need to be in the middle of the “grill” though.
