Will the older steel 16.5" rims clear the caliper? I know that 16" rims do not clear but would that little bit be the answer?

only if you like to grind the calipers just a little less than with a 16" wheel

You have to grind, there is no way the wheels will clearance themselves. The back doesn't take much at all, the front needs about .5" taken off. I'll see what I can do about pics this afternoon.

Sorry, I will get them tomorrow. As for the calipers themselves, I haven't had any problems.
