there is not as good tire selection with 16.5 but there are some good tires out there..You can go to military surplus and get hummer tires they are 37x12.5x16.5

I have a set of turbine rims that are 16.5 x 10 and I have mounted a set of 33x12.5 mud-terrain's on them. I have no complaints. They work just fine but yes I agree finding tires is a chore sometimes. Summit Racing carries mine for around $750 a set when it's al said and done.
