well being most are 4" backspacing in that size you dont have much options i personally would stay away from 16's but thats me..

edit scratch that 16 in. x 8 in., 5 x 4.5 in. Bolt Circle, 5 in. Backspace your stuck with 5" back spacing on Cragers it is more then stock, stock is 4.5" so its only going to stick out .5" over stock because there 8" wide

I think he just got a new set of tires. Or at least I think he did. That's probably why he wants 16x8.

EDIT: Yes 265/70R16 Firestone Destination A/T

Hooked on phonics didn't work for him because apparently he can't read.

So why didn't you wait until you were going to get rims to get tires? 15" wheels and tires are almost always cheaper than the 16" sizes. Also the backspacing choices are way better with the 15" wheels.

If you want them to stick out get at least 16x9 if not 16x10. Not sure if crager even makes 16x9.

I have the 15x10's to make up for the high backspacing. If they had like a 3" backspacing I would have gotten 15x8.
