    Hey folks,

    I tried to find that post but I can't locate it. How wide is the rim on a 16.5 x 8"

    My rims outside measurement is like 8 1/2" - 8 3/4" I cannot locate any numbers on the rims. Does anybody know or can some one measure the outside dimentions of a 6.5" for me?

    thanks

    bob

    b454rat, if that's true I most likely have 6.75's.

    I don't want to unmount them if I don't have to. That's why I'm asking about the outside measurements.

    Mine had a tire on it when I found it, and didn't want to take the tire off just to see, so I measured outside and that is what i came up with. After I cleaned it up I noticed the 16.5x8.25 stamped on it. Could be a 7.5?? Bunch of weird sizes out there.

    the size should be stamped on the inside of the rim. it required on all rims. the only reason it would be missing is rust. clean it real well. the size stated is from bead bundle to bead bundle. the outside dimensions will depend on the size and shape of the rim lip.
