I've heard lots of different things about the maximum tire width I can put on my 7 inch rims but I just wanted to confirm it for sure on the boards. I don't really want to get new rims just because they are pretty cool as it is. So on that, how wide can I go (in millimeters) on my 16x7 rims. Thanks guys.
265/75 16's are the biggest tire rated for 16x7 rims. Of course you can put bigger tires on these rims but it is not recommended for safety reasons. Also tread wear will be less (will wear in the middle of tire). I considered putting larger tires on my stock rims. I have 265/75 16 tires which were on the truck when I bought it last month. They have less than a thousand miles on them so I bought 16x8 alloys and put the 265's back on. They fill up the wheel wells better now and will be on my truck until the warranty expires in 16 months when I will lift the truck and put on bigger tires.
