Having a hard time finding wheels

I'm looking for some simple black satin or gloss or cheap flat black alloys I can paint in 16 or 17x9ish.
Currently running 295/75/16 BFG KO2s on stock wheels on an 01 Limited. The centers wore a little faster and I'd like to remedy that with proper wheel width.
I understand these are hub centric? And there's just not a lot of options any more without getting much bigger and more expensive.
I was reading about the pro-comp 7069 and comparable wheels and people have run them successfully but others have had issues with loose lug nuts since they are lug centric. What do you guys think?
Trying to stay around $160ish and lower per and if I can snag a good set on Black Friday for a deal is be all for it.

What air pressure are you using? I am running a wider (not much wider at all though) and for 25k miles so far totally even wear, Im running the same brand tire too on the oem 16x7 wheels with the 285/75r16 bfg at ko2. Im running 55 psi front and 50psi rear when not towing then depending on the trailer I have been maxxed or around 60-70psi etc.

your 295/75r16s are actually a tiny bit taller/narrower so you technically should be wearing better than me with my slightly wider/smaller diameter tire.

too finally answer your question I looked and looked and looked you can go with hub centric 16x10 wheels but the 16x8/16x7 are getting very, very hard to find.

4wheelparts, discounttire, tiretrack, tirebuyer,

heres a link to a tire size comparison for your size and my size. We are near identical vehicles/wheels with only slightly different size tires so Im really thinking its not the wheels etc.

So I check size comparisons and from what I found:
285/75r16 is a 32.8x11.2
295/75r16 is a 33.4x11.6
Accounting to charts I've seen. Not that much different.
I'm running about the same psi and I've even dropped it down into the 40s to help slow down the center wear.
I'm running 350 soft codes so I'm a little taller. Not sure if a 10" wheel would fit with a 33x12.5 at the fender corners at full lock. It'd be super close.

I've ran 35x12.50 on stock rims and got even wear. It's all about air pressure, I kept mine at 50. Though your experience might vary since you have BFG's, I hate BFG with a passion.

https://www.customwheeloffset.com/

Go to the wheel finder and go to the size & brand tab. Enter 16 x 8 8x170 and search for wheels. In the left column set the offset to -6, set it to -12 if you're looking for a 9" wide wheel. Find a wheel you like, as long as the hub bore is 125 they will be hub centric. Hub bore can be found in the wheel description. Also remember you need new lug nuts to go with them.

Pulled the trigger on some dropstars 645b in 20x10 -19 for $90 each on PerformancePlus. Also ordered some Toyo open country AT ll's in 33x12.50. they are a hair smaller in diameter and not all that much wider so I should be good to go. $1650ish for wheels and tires mounted, balanced, and shipped. Not too bad.
I'll post up when I get them on here in a couple weeks. I didn't want 20's but for that price...

Back to the drawing board... The wheels are back ordered with no ETA. So I'm prob going to run an 18x9 and I want to run a 33x12.50 ish tire. I'm thinking a -6 or -12 should work with the f350 springs.

So I ordered some of these:
Decent load rating and should get some good usage out of the tires. The BFGs just don't seem to be wearing as good as the older versions on either of my trucks. Time to find something else.

And a plug for custom offsets- great customer service. I know they are swamped right now but they took the time to help me find a good fit for my truck at an affordable price. They were very curteous, and very knowledgeable. I paid $1600 for the set and after the NC taxes $1712 out the door.
Also, even though Performance Plus had the original wheels I'd purchased had sold out, they contacted me promptly, & worked with me on some other stuff. I didn't end up going with them but I'd surely do business with either of these companies again.

Looks good! Changing the King Ranch tan to black on the bottom and putting some low profile offroad bumpers with a mesh grille would really set it off.
