Ranger Alcoas?

I was wondering if anyone knew what sizes the Alcoas came in on the Rangers? I have 16 inch wheels on my truck and was looking to get a set of Alcoas but someone suggested that they didnt think that the Alcoas came in 16 inch. Would it make a difference if I used 15 inch instead of 16 inch?

I wasnt sure what going to a smaller wheel would do. Will it change my speedo any?

stock 255/70/16 overall diameter is 30.9". You can get a 31x10.5x15 which is about the same overall diamater,keeping your speedo within 2-3mph.
