17" Wheels on a 6" pro comp lift?

Hey guys so i have a 2012 tundra on 18" wheels now but really wanna go down to a 17" wheel for better off road use and more tire section. Procomp states that you can't fit 17s with there lift. Anyone know if this is true or not or a way around this? Thanks

You might start running into clearance issues with the brake rotors with 17" rims.

No Walker Evans and Method racing both make a 17 machined to fit over the breaks.

IIRC, it is the Pro Comp spindle that will not jive with 17s.

idk how much this helps but i had the same problem when i lifted mine fitting my 18" wheels. i had no choice but to run a wheel spacer. gave me plenty of clearance away from the spindle.

There's a guy on here that fit 17" Methods (Double Standards) on his BDS 7" lift just fine. I think really the only 17" wheels that'll fit with these bracket lifts are the RW wheels or Methods.

Ok I think I'm retarded or maybe I've just been over thinking this whole thing. I have a 4.5 backspacing now with an 18x9 inch wheel I'm running a 1 inch wheel spacer and the clearance from the knuckle is at least 3 inch so with a 17x8 inch wheel with the same backspacing it should clear fine. Im gonna order one today and test it out.
