why a t bar crank? just get you a 3 inch body lift. its cheap and doesn't wear out your ball joints as fast. and instead of a 16x8 i would suggest a 15x10 or if your set on 16's get a 16x10

you have plenty of room to run 15's. if you say you can't run 15's why would you run 16's?

sorry to not explain but i dont think there is enough room between the inside of the wheel and the brakes to go smaller

Yeah I run a 15x8 just fine as well. Just make sure to get the proper backspacing.

Its the same thing as a 15x10 tho, the 15x10 will just be out 2 more inches. Just get proper backspacing and you'll be fine.
