why would you want 16.5 wheels? They have no safety bead and that is one of the main reasons you don't see them anymore.

you could get some H1 wheels, and cut out the middle and weld in a new middle with your bolt pattern, you'll be able to pick your back spacing that way.. And your gonna have double bead lock wheels

speaking of which, where is Dalhart?
