The rim width is only 7 inches, you can find the rockcrawlers or equivalent on www.summitracing.com or usually your local tire store can obtain them. The backspacing if I am not mistaken is 4.5 but dont qoute me on that.

ahhh sorry you have 16's stock your a 2003 opps my bad. ok first 2 options listen

1) (strongly STRONGLY recommend this) BUY NEW 15x8 rims YES aftermarket rims will work fine 100% fine. then get 32x11.5x15 tires you suprisinly will save money if you hunt around for the rims

2) the really expansive one. ok buy a 265x75x16 OR 285x75x16 tires the 265 will fit with out ANY touching to the truck at all. now the 285 people have them to fit will out touching the t-bars but i recommend a slight 1-2 turns on it to give better clearness this will NOT hirt anything. have fun...

I haven't looked into pricing on 285's, but you're saying that it'd be cheaper to buy rims and 32's instead of the 285's?
