    what tire siz can I go with if I get 16" pro comp steel rims while avoiding rubbing issues.
    The truck has bilsteins on the front set at 2.5" in the front and bilsteins with a toytec 1.5"AAL in the rear

    would like to have the tires reach the outside edge of the fenders.

    thanks for your input

    16x8 with 4" backspace wrapped with 265-75-16s will look balanced on a doublecab...

    not at all. Just about flush with the wheel well trim. It has stock 16" rims now as well as 265 tires. Although the tires are over two years old :eek: what does the other number identify (i.e. 16x8 or 16x9), the width? I got the bf all weather tires now but what would be compariable set of new all weather tires?

    is the bolt pattern for the rims 6 on 4.5 or 6 on 135? checking out the pro comp website now. looking to purchase before the end of the weekend. goin with the steel rims, the alloys are a little to pricey.

    thanks mikesdoublecab

    gonna order 'em in a day or two pro comp series 8069 16" wheels witha 6 x 5.5 bolt pattern. Now I got to find a decent all weather tire to put on 'em ( any suggestions?) i was thinking maybe a 285 tire as opposed to a 265 tire. Shouldn't be a problem, right? There is considerable room because of the lift on the front and back.

    how much are you getting them for?

    wheelers offroad sells the same wheels and since they are a vendor here on TW, maybe they have a member discount...

    do some comparison shopping between them and 4wheelparts...

    I would stick with the 265/75/16, You will get great MPGs, besides if you go 285 its going to be taller than the 265.
    check this, this will help you understand the Metric sizes. http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html
