Will 17" wheel fit '07 Lariat 4x4?

I keep getting conflicting answers from local tire & wheel shops on this subject, so I figured I'd ask you guys. They said the brake calipers are bigger on '05 and up and 17's will not fit. My '07 F150 4x4 Lariat currently has 20" wheels. Fabtech recommends a 17x9 wheel for their 6" kits. Will a 17" aftermarket wheel fit my truck? Has anyone actually done this? I just want to have everything ready to bolt up once the lift is installed.

In some cases it depends upon the wheel. In general, yes, a 17" will fit, but there have been a few that did not. Unfortunately, I do not no the brands and specs of those that did not, but they may have been reported here.
Just an FYI, stock wheels were 17" for the 07, with 18's and 20's as options.

In 2005 they had a few problems with aftermarket 17's clearing the brakes but no problems since that I've heard of. I went to 17's from my stock 18's and have had no problems.

I have 17" Centerlines with 4.5"BS on my 07 FX4 and they fit fine. Tire shops for the most part don't know squat about these matters.

Sig complement of Strike Swiftly of(SFX)

2007 F-150 FX4 with Toyo MT's (285-75-17) on Centerline Forged Turbine Wheels (17x8 w/4.5BS). Undercover bed cover, AF1 CAI, Husky Liners, tint, Flowmaster Super 40 muffler w/duals ran to stock location and stainless tips, Bilstein 5100's and a stubbie antenna to give me clearance to get it in the garage.
