    a freind of mine's mother has a set of wheels for sale.

    they are 16x10 mickey thompson classics. with tires(arent much good though)

    now I want to put these on my truck (95 chvy 3500 6.5 turbo desiel std cab) I already have a set of oversised tires on it (bfg allterrains.) which are almost the equivalent of 33x12.50 tires.(more like 32 1/4 by 11 1/4)

    When I bought these tires I was told that I should get a wider wheel(mine are only six inches wide) because they will wear bad in the center. I use this truck for towing my other junk so I'm not lifting it yet.

    The price is 450 for the set. They are in good shape (no scratches or damage on the wheels) the center caps are a little rusty but I dont care about that.) Im gona switch my tires to these wheels if I get them.

    Whats your suggestions.??

    good rule is 2" less than the tire for best look and wear. sounds just a bit high but o.k. range. look at a few web sites for prices.
