Need help finding Aftermarket rims

So I'm soon going to be lifting my 01 dually 6in front and back. I've been searching for new rims and I'll I come up with are aftermarket 16x6 rims on like ebay or tire rack. Or I found American force. Ima college kid so American force is out of the question. With that said where can I find some like 17 or 18 in dually rims? I want some wider rims to for bigger tires. Also what the biggest tire I can fit on my stock rims? I'm not overly familiar with tire fitment. Do I have to worry about the with of the tire with a 16x6 rim? Thatnk

Take a look at the fatbottom thread or lifted dually thread. Most guys have stock wheels running 12.5 wide tires. If your're ok with the look, then your golden. It would definitely be nicer to run a wider wheel but you will have a hard time finding them for the 8 on 170 bolt pattern.
This is one downfall to our trucks, lack of wheel selection especially wider than 6". What size tire were you planning to run? I know you can get a 255/85/16 BFG MT which is a 33x10.50 I believe.
As far as wear, most do not seem to have many issues. Take a look at the threads I mentioned. We recently brushed over tire wear in the fatbottom thread

you will not find wider wheels than 17x6.5 unless you step up to 22" or have a custom set made. i run a 12.5 tire both front and rear. in the back you need a 2.5 spacer so the tires dont rub. i didnt like the look on the front so i switched out to a standard 17x9 wheel and ditched the dually spacer. the aftermarket for dually wheels is slim

I'm lifting my truck 6in. And i have a custom front bumper so no rub there. And I'm ok with fender trimming. I was thinking something like a 38x10.50? That seem realistic with this set up? And I plan on spacers in rear. Thanks.

Do they make a 38x10.50? Those would fit the narrow dually wheels. Slobra did a good job matching his wheels. While not perfect, damn near.

I was going to go with 17's but didn't have any luck finding a steelie for our bolt pattern. I'm just going with eagle 058's with 16x10 in front. A lot of people do not like that Alcoa kind of style but I do. I also wouldn't mine trying to find some 5 stars that match the oem, but I do not think I have seen any that match well.
