Ok yes another 16.5 wheel question.
Ok well ive searched and searched and cant find the answer to my questions.
I have 4 humvee tires W/ full rubber run flats, dot approved goodyear's straight off base, but obviously ford screwed us with the lug patterns.
#1: If i buy Mickey Thomson 16.5 wheels will these tires stay on at normal psi and be safe to put my daughter in the truck...i do wheeling but never air down or anything like that.
#2: If I were to go and buy some trail worthy fab custom wheels, can i run them as DD safely(again i have a daughter).
#3: What back spacing should i run? I have after market wheels now with 4.5 but i truelly love the wide stance look...is a 2.5 backspacing to agressive or just go 3.5...yes i know I might have to cut my bumper but thats ok, i only have a 4inch lift anyways so the 37's will rub regardless for now.
Thanks for the input guys.
