Tire/Wheel Ignorance

Hey guys,

When I purchased my 04, it had 2 new tires on the rear and the fronts are just about bald (37x12.50R 16LT Super Swamper Radial TSL). My local garage has the tires on hand, but they are 16.5 LTs. Will they work? Not sure about my wheels, but assume they're 16's. 350.00 dollars mounted!

I wouldn't do it if I were you. It can't be all that safe.

Usually 16.5" tires are astronomically priced, its why so many people get rid of their 16.5" wheels, price and few options.

You might try shopping around for 16" tires and end up getting em for cheaper
