not sure about fitment but it's extremely hard to find tires for 16.5's. i thing BFG makes only the all terrain for 16.5 then there's interco but swampers wear out fast especially with HD trucks. however i do like the older weld wheels they are classics

Don't do it! 17" wheels barely clear the calipers. I have heard if the tire balancing guys put the wrong weights on they will hit the calipers too.

the tires are easy to find you can by surplus military tires 37x12.5?x16.5 you can get practically new ones (government surplus) for $99.00 or so each. but my concern is like the one guy said about the caliper clearance.

I also have seen rims made for new sd 170x8

Not sure if excursions are different but I have 16.5's on my '05. Not my first choice on rim size but I got mine for a steal!
