    It's gonna look terrible. I have 35" x14.50" tires on 12" rims and I wish I went with 10" rims.

    Good Luck,

    uhhhh yes. I wouldn't go any wider then a 9.75 rim. What are trying to do? Hold the record for popping a tire off the rim the most times?

    as long as there a true 12.5 I like the look you will have a stright sidewall, the only 1 problem you might ever have is since there 16.5 and on a wide wheel you cant air down as much because you will blow a bead

    I've heard it is quite the bitch to find 5 lug 16.5" wheels. One guy in my club had this problem and he ended up welding the middle out of a set of 5 lug wheels into a 16.5" rim. It looks horrible and scary but held up on the trail until he ripped the pinion off his 9". I'll get a pic of the wheels if I see his truck again but good luck in your search.
