I would go with 15x8 or a 15x10 for cost reasons, the tires are much cheaper. What size tire do you want to run? I would only run a 15x10 with a 12.5" wide tire, anything smaller than that go with a 15x8. And get the smallest backspacing you can if you want it to stick out.

Ah makes sense. Go with a 16x8, the 16x10 is too wide for those tires. The bad thing about 16" rims is the backspacing is 4 7/16 while the backspacing for the 15" wheels is 3 5/16 so the 15" rims stick out 1" more than the 16"

So if i understand I can't go smaller than 4 7/16 with a 16'' rims.But what is the size of my stock rims 16X8???and what backspacing i have now?? What do you mean it will be to wide with a 16X10??Rims gonna look to big for the tire??

Your stock rims are 16x7 with 4.5" backspacing. By the 16x10 being to wide it will ballon the tire and it won't wear correctly, all the tread won't be contacting the ground.

i have 15x10s w/ 33x12.50s and they stick out an inch or two WITH fender flares. wheels wont make a difference w/ the tires you have. they are only 31" tall and 10.5 in wide (correct me if im wrong). i bought my truck w/ 265/75/16s already on it on stock rims and they didnt even stick out past the fender well. if you wanna get em to stick out you need at least a 32x11.50x15 but they still wont stick out as much as a 12.5" wide tire on a #x10" rim
