    Alright guys. I'm getting new wheels soon and they see 16x8. I was wondering what size tires can I put on them. Also the tires can't be huge because I have stock suspension and I don't want any rubbing. I have heard that the stock 265/70/16 will fit on this size wheel. So guys any comments on what size I should put and pics would be great. Thanks everyone.

    The wheels I'm more than likely getting see pro comp 89. in reading some forums on here I heard that some people have had some problems with these wheels hitting the brakes. But I only seen where the 2nd gens where hitting. So I was wondering if there was any problems with the 16x8 wheels.

    You will be fine with that size wheel.. And yes, you can run a 265/70 or a 265/75. And you shouldnt have any rubbing.
