quinletc The wheels became quite a hazard when reloading a new tire. There have been several men that have been killed and or badly maned when the wheels would blow apart when refilling them with air. As posted replacements should be common to find from 3/4 ton and up trucks
I believe you will have more tire choices available to you in 16" rather than 16.5.
In the cool still quiet hours of night, you can hear chevies rusting away.
I'd check with a dealer and see what new ones go for. Around here new wheels are about $10.00 more over used. Or look for new steel after market wheels too. The tire shop I go to all the time has like new steel wheels for not a lot of money as well. Let your finger do some walking before heading to a bone yard.
I work in a tire shop and Im one of the few that will do.split rims. Voming fron my experience your better off buying different rims 16.5 tire are expendive and limited and you can get plain black or steel wheels for cheap
