16" wheels

im looking at switching up wheels and going to a 16 and running 35/12.50/16 mud grapplers but i have a few questions. The wheels i am running now are 15x10s w/ 3.75" backspacing and the ones im looking at are either 16x10 w/4.5" backspacing or 16x8 w/ 4" backspacing. which would give me the wider stance more on the lines of how mine is now.

16x10 with 4.5" BS??? That would rub hella crazy. I'd go with the 16x8's with 4" BS. I don't have very good pics of like straight on of my truck with the new wheels but I'm running 16x8's with 4" BS with 33x11.50" Nitto Terra Grapplers. Might give you a little bit of an idea of how it'll look.

yea i think the 16x10s would look better but with that BS it would put the width more on the inner part of the tire i think and wouldnt stick out of the fenders any at all
