I'm just finishing up my 79 f150 6in lift stock axles just wanted to ask before I ordered rims if they would fit my project. I got a set of 37 by 12.5 16.5 tires and the rims I was gonna order are 16.5 by 8.25 wide with a 4 in backspacing and 16mm offset. Can anyone tell me if that will work fine without rubbing issues thanks in advance.
the only way to tell is by trying a set on .
did you do 8 lug conversion, or find a set of 5 lug 16.5 rims?
before dropping big cash on 16.5 rims, 16.5 tires are very few and far between, and they will all but disappear very soon. even the military is getting away from them.
