and 8 lug for 3/4 ton and 1 ton trucks.....

companies are slowly getting rid of the 16.5 wheel & tire.......that was only sold in America and since most wheels and tires are made overseas, they want to be able to sell them over there.........you can't get a 16.5 tire in a metric size.....and if you look at almost all tires that are 16" they are in metric sizes....even the 33 or 35 is actually a metric size compareable to the size...,.

I think 16.5" tires have a big bold warning on them that reads something like MOUNT ONLY ON 16.5" RIM.
