Stock 16" vs Aftermarket 16"

I run LT305/70R16E's on my truck. I have them mounted on a set of stock '03 rims.

I think the stock rims are 8"?

If I went with an aftermarket wheel - 16x10 - what difference would that make on the tire and appearance of the truck? I dont mind if the tires protrude from the fenders a bit.

I saw some US Strykers by Pro-Comp on e-bay reasonable new - was considering them.

I'll attribute me "not getting the joke" to being exhausted. Sorry dude.

Curious on the appearance and any difference I would notice with the different wheel width. Anybody know?

you will notice it, it will stick out a little past the fender, but will give it a nice look.... and your tires will look better too

I appreciate your comment. Kind of what I was going for.

Is there a backspacing I need to be aware of?

as long as your backspacing is 4.5" you should be just fine. I'm running 305's on 17x9's and there's no rubbing at all. they'll look really good.

Stock 16s are 7" wide.

so would a 10" wheel be overkill? The Nitto website says 8-10 with a 9" ideal.
