16x8 or 16x10?

Which wheel would be best? Not the manufacturer - but size -

I run a 33x12.50x16 on current stock wheels (Lariat 16x7's currently).

Want to be able to have the option to up tire size to 315 in future but for now - 305's are what is economical.

So - which wheel size - 16x8 or 16x10 (the manufacturer I'm looking at only offers these two sizes in the style I like).

Thanks

a 16x8 would probably be okay for a 315, i run 325's (33x13.5's) on 18x9's

It just depends on the look you want, either size rim should be fine for those tires.

With 16x8's the tires should be completely inside the fenderwell, and with 16x10's you will have a wider look and the sidewalls might be out a little past the edge of the fenderwell.

x2 you will be fine with a 16x8 but if you want a wider stance with the tires go with a 16x10

I like a wider stance -

The wheels are Dick Cepek DC-1 Black. 16x10 specs are 4.52 back spacing with a -.25 offset. 8-170 bolt. Is this all correct.

If money allows - I want to be able to go with the wider MT 14.5's or 15.5's - would this rim still allow that for future upgrade when I'm no longer thouroughly broke?

Im pretty sure those are the specs on the DC-1 my friend has the exact rim with those specs on his cummins and they give a really wide stance with a 12.5" wide mud terrain. you should be able to do a 14.5 not sure about a 15.5 though

I think I'm going to go with the 16x10's. I like the wider stance.

I just want to make sure my tires (LT305/70R16 -- 33x12.50r16, Nitto Terra Grapplers) dont look stupid buldged out beyond intent). I dont like the wheel wider then the tire - I still jump curbs you know -

I like the way youre truck sits I think that is the perfect combo 18s 35s with 4" to 5" lift. That is what I am shooting for.
