Wheels?

Ok, i have a question. I plan to get some new wheels for my 04. Now heres my question(s). 1. My tire size is 255/70/16 what does that equal out too in inches? Can i have 16x8 wheel width safely? 2. Id like the Dick Cepek DC-1's. Now heres a dumb question, but what is the bolt pattern? And Does anyone know of a place I can find them thats appropriate for my application, and reasonably priced?

Thanks, and do you know of any place i could go to online for cheaper wheels? Places like summit (which i havent checked yet) i can go to a shop down here and they will price match it, if its cheaper.

Try this site. Just plug in your current size and the size or sizes of the wheel/tire combinations you're thinking about getting.
Hit enter and let the computer do the work for you.
