Two issues here, first you won't clear the brakes, second there area few tires are now available for a 16.5" rim. What is making you want to change to 16.5's?

the truck will normally roll on 37x13.50x20 M16's but once I get to the drags i would like to throw a big fat bogger on there. If there is no way a 16.5 will fit i'll have to settle for a 37x13x17 bogger

I'm fairly new to mud drags but I imagine with the power I have on tap wider is better..

I would think a taller skinny tire would work best. My issues with a wide tire and soft ground has been the tire tends to bulldoze the material not dig through it.

Even a bogger? remember this is drags not bogs.. I mean the big time races run huge wide tires, that being said they don't weigh 9000 pounds either

To me, wider = more grip = moves the beast quicker...

Heres the track...

I agree, tall and skinny is best for the mud drags. Saw a truck one time at the mud drags that made his first pass with the wide mud boggers on and then his second pass with like 70"x8" tires on and he cut his time in half.
