Tire options for 16.5" rims?????

Ive been searching for some decent mud terrain tires in the 33 to 35 inch range and cant seem to find them in 16.5, is this rim size dead and I should move on to an 18 or what?

I looked into the military wrangler, but I need more lift to fit the 37" tires.

Yeah I looked into the BFG ATs, but I'd rather have a MT. I've just got a leveling kit.

The wheels are the same width but one has 5% less sidewall than the other. The figures you list break down as follows-
235/75/16 = 235mm width cross section/75% of the width is the hight the sidewall/16 is the rim size.The 75 series wheel will be a little bit larger than the 70 series
