Help me Buy Wheels: 00' CCLB 2.5 Lift

So my original plan was to get my stock 16s coated black, but then I did some looking and found that the 315/75/16s Nitto Terra Grapplers can't mount on that narrow of a rim.

So my options have opened up now since Ideally I would need to get at least 16X8.5s. But now that I am going with new wheels, I would entertain going to 18s (17 seems odd to find decent tire prices) But the key is I want Black wheels!!! I am trying to black out the truck but I would go with chrome accents like bolt studs, but I know 2 tone wheels will not last in New York when I finally leave TX. one winter and anything not painted with corrode.

So from experience what sizes am I able to fit on a 00' CCLB 4X4 I know 315/75/16 would fit, but what about width and offset for wheels then what tire size to match it.

I am looking for is to be $200 or less for the wheel and 250 or less for the tire. Aggressive All Terrain/Mild mud IE No Nitto Mudders.

315/75R16's can be mounted on stock rims. I see it all the time. If a shop said it can't be done. Go to a different shop.


But if you want new rims I would stick with the 16 inch rim. Get either Mickey Thompson Baja Claw, Toyo Open Country, Pro Comp Extreme AT, I mean there is endless options with 16 inch rims. If you want wider rims then go with a 16x10 inch rim. backspace I would have it so it works out to be about the same as the stock back spacing.

I am sure they can get put on my stockers, and I have seen it too, just didnt know how good it is for the tires life, load capacity and wear. What are the stock wheel size? I thought I read they are 16X7?

so you are talking 16X7s then? If I am going to buy wheels I would like bigger or wider than stock, or I might as well coat my stockers for $200.

I have never seen a rim size 16x7. Now I have not measured my stock rim size but I bet it is 16x8 which is a very common rim size.

i have 315/75/16 on stockers on my hunting rig. They fit, but do not hold a bead as well as an 8 to 10 inch wheel would. They sink into the wheel.

Well after some research the stock rim does measure 16x7. But that just don't seem right. It sure does not look like a 7 inch wide rim.

I would say screw metric size and get a 35x11.50R16 and be done with it.

Dave,

Get 16x10. With typical 315/75/16 you might rub the leafs. I have 16x10 and 35 BFGs and they dont rub the leafs but they rub the fender lining when the tires are new. Since the tires are half worn, they dont rub anymore. 16x10s will stick out more and I like that look better than tucked in wheels.
