This one says 6-7.5" so you're only a half inch outside. It's really up to you. Some will say go for it, some not so much. I would do some research and make an educated decision for yourself rather than ask others to choose. It really is on you.

etc.

Basically, you "can" put them on a 16x8, but I wouldn't. It's not recommended for a good reason.
Ok thanks for the advice!
Is there any aftermarket wheel beside Trd in 16/7 that you know of??
Thanks

Update on my 235/85. They do much better than the bfgs. I think more of the problem is the taco is too light for snow. On the highway they are straight and true. Good offroad. They did pretty well on the roads with snow with whatever condition (packed, icy, ect)

What tire did you go for in that size? I have LT235/85-r16E Blizzaks for winters and they are better fuel economy, ride quality, and quieter than 10 ply BFG AT's in 265/75/16.

I almost went for 235/80/17's in my new summer tires (LTX MS2) but since they are for highway travel and I'm not worried about having better "bite" in the snow and ice, I went for 265/70/17

I had 235/75/15 on my stock 5 lug wheels. I think the rims were 6" maybe? there was a little pooch but nothing i was ever worried about. It did surprisingly well in snow and mud with A/T tires being effectively just one wheel drive..
