    What would be the perfect wheel fitment specs for 16", what would be the offset and bs in order to clear the suspension and stay flush with the fender?

    if anyone got the flat rota grids or te37 specs, i'd really appreciate it.

    I am looking at 16" 6x139.7 5 offset. will this work?

    ur stock backspace is 4.5" so 5" will sit too far in...

    go with 4.25" so you can later clear 32" tires

    Wait - a 5mm offset (which is what you posted above) is NOT the same as 5" backspacking. What's the rim width?

    oh yah, offset, not backspace...

    the TE37s in 16x8 are -10 offset which is in between 4" and 4.25"

    Uh, we've got one guy saying +5mm offset and one saying -10mm offset.

    You don't tell us what size tire you're planning on mounting.

    A -10mm offset is a fair negative offset. Expect to do a bit more trimming on a wider tire. For a 265 width tire it might be OK.

    A +5 offset is getting in close to the UCA. A 285 width tire is almost certain to rub the UCA on any rim with a positive offset. But a 265 width tire ought to fit.

    I don't think we can rule it out - I think what you've got is in the realm of "probably fits, try it out to be sure."

    EDIT: PS - I don't claim to have tried to fit a bunch of tires. But I read a *bunch* of tire fitment threads before ordering my tires and wheels.
