are you 2wd or 4wd?

if 4wd you should be alright but if you do have any rubbing issues just crack your t-bars a little.

It is 4wd. Will the tires stick out past the fenders any. If so how much, i think it looks a little better when the tires aint stuck up in the fenders.

What's the backspace of the wheels?? It all depends on that. Alot of 16x8" wheels are about 5" backspace...the above pic is 5" back space.

Here's different angle which will solve your question if your rims are 5" back space.....

I did some research for ya.......went to the micky T website, and 16x8 Classic 2's have a 4 7/16 back space.....so it'll stick out 9/16 more than the pics i posted.

If i want the tires to stick out a lil more, will spacers hurt anything.

Why did you want 16's anyway??? There's not that good of back spaces avalible for 16's....15's are a WAAY better way to get them to stick out.

Don't use spacers...I do not trust them.
