Just get steelies then no worries, unless its some wierd backspacing they will fit.

If its aluminum I think it just depends on manufacturer, thickness of the wheel etc, Id guess at least centerline. Mine were 15x8 with a pretty much centerline and they just fit, a grain of dust and it would rub the brake caliper.

do you think it would be a good idea to grind the caliper a bit?

I did it on my 92 3/4 ton to fit 15's, but its really just an offroad truck, 1/2 ton calipers arnt as thick as 3/4 ton, not much you can take off.
