a tire idiot needs help with some baja MTZs

so ..Im the tire idiot here.. done all the reading I can on the forum ,and net.
biased radial metric size ratios spacing blah blah

16" rims will not fit on these trucks, alas, 16" tires will not fit.

Rim diameter and tire diameter (inside) should always match. You never want to try to cram a smaller tire onto a larger rim (nor larger tire onto smaller rim), it won't work and is unsafe.

Those rims would fit the tires, but I don't think 16" wheels will clear the brake calipers on our trucks. Ford went to 17's quite a few years back due to the larger brakes.
