    I just ordered some Wrangler Duratracs (LT265/75R16 BLACK Load Range C) but I have no clue how to size rims for a tire. I checked a calculator but I'm still unsure.

    Can you pleas help me pick the right rims? I'm currently looking at some Mickey Thompson Classic II Black Wheel
    16X8 , 8 on 6.5 Bolt Pattern
    BackSpace = 4in
    Max Load = 3100lbs
    Finish = Black
    Hubcentric = NoOffset = -13

    those should work. WHEELS (not rims ;) ) for sizing just depends on the diameter (matching __/__r16 tires with 16" wheels), IIRC. backspacing and all that affects weather or not it will clear brake calipers and whatnot

    anyone running with these wheels? I just talked with a parts guy and he thinks this style of wheel has issues with the caliper.

    Those will not work, they are not the correct lug pattern. you need 6 on 5.5
