Unless you have a lot of money to kick around STAY AWAY from 16" rims. My 32" BFGs cost well over $200 more then the 32" BFGs with 15" rims...

On a larger tire (32+) i think the 16s look noticeably better, the rim doesnít get lost in the massive sidewall, but it so isnít worth the retarded difference in prices...

i think 20s on mud tires or any other bigger tires look kinda dumb cuz their so big.

im stuck on the BFG. i like the way 16s look on 32s and 33s but that dumb too how the price is soo different

oh and Mr. Special, what that dudes name on here that you have in your pics with the white sport with 16s?

i just got the Kumho Road Verture AT's and i love them already. can deff tell driving diffrence from my old set of 265/75r16 BF's to the new 285/75R16 Kumho's

a lot better turning, driving, bumps all seem better. i felt scared with my BF's

and kumho's are rated better on tirerack.com and there a lot better priced for 16+ rim sizes
