Smaller wheels?

Anyone know if you can bolt 17" wheels on an ST? I just put new snow tires that are on nice looking aftermarket wheels on the wife's current car. The hub diameter, offset, bolt pattern are all the same as the ST, just not sure if it would clear the ST with the performance brakes. About to pull the trigger on an ST and it would be nice to save a few $ by keeping her current snow tires/wheels as the stock tires on the ST were pretty bad on the ice when we did a test drive. If they won't clear the brakes they might as well go with her current vehicle.

The base rides on 18" wheels. That is what I changed over to. I can now drive on run flat tires. TSW makes a forged truck wheel for the ST that costs way less than Ford steel wheels.

Does this clear the larger brakes that come with street pack optioned Explorers?
