question about wheels

I have a '01 XLT 4x4 Off-Road and I want to replace my stock 16" wheels with cragar soft 8 wheels. What size should I get to keep it close to stock. I don't go rock crawling or anything, just a little off-road trail riding now and then.

well I would personall get 15" caue tires are much cheaper and as long as the rolling circumfrence of the tires is the same, the wheel size don't matter too much.
