I was going to go to 16" factory wheels on mine but the hubs too large for the center and, more importantly, the brakes and parts are to large. They don't fit inside 16" dually wheels. It had 16.5's on it at purchase.

Yes and look for 8 lug bolt holes and measure from the outside edge of one hole across to the outside edge of the other, 6 1/2" is what you are looking for.

Dually rims use a adapter/hub spacer on the front and rear.....I believe.

16's will fit with a little off set to clear the brakes or some folks grind a little caliper edge off.
