Looking for 16.5 tires

I just got a set of M/T 16.5 rims that are 9.75 wide, I have 35's on them now but am looking for something bigger. What is the biggest tire I can get for the 16.5 rim?

2005 F350 Crew Cab Lariat 4x4 Dually.. My new Fat Bottom!!! SCT SF3, blue spring upgrade and Straight Piped! Studded and deleted, custom tuning hopefully coming! 22.5 American Force Independance wheels!

BFG is about the only ones making 16.5 tires now days. Nitto may have a few. Your tire choices are slim.....As far as biggest size....IDK. I'm running 33x12.5x16.5. Matter of fact, looking for a set of 16.5 wheels to replace the ones I have. My tires are 90% and I ruined a wheel....cant afford new tires or wheels right now.

Not to be a smart azz but the biggest tires that I know of for 16.5 go all the way up between 44-54 inch sizes. There are actually a lot of company's that make tires in that rim size. I run 37" Parnelli Jones myself. Superswamper, MT, BFG and and many others make them too!

With the wheels being 9.75" wide, you have a lot of options to choose from. Like RRonning said, there are many manufactures that still build 16.5 sizes in larger diameters. Was there a particular size you were looking for?

Super Swamper builds their TSL's in both the 36x14.50 and 38x15.50-16.5 sizes.
