How wide can I go?

I am looking at getting new wheels but I want to know how wide I can go. I am running 265/75/16's on my stock wheels and I would really like to go with something that is a 16x8 or 16x10. I have my tbars maxed almost so I would like to see what everyone's experience is with the wider wheels.

If anyone has pictures also that would be great

Well I have Narrowed it down to three options all from pro comp because they are a good deal

The 1079

I agree with stone. 10" is pretty wide on a 265 size tire. It might be to wide and make the tire look funny. Plus you always want to have the tire seated in the wheel right.
