    Not 100% sure about the width but they should be something like 16x6.5 or 16x7.

    So whats the widest tire i can put on that 6.5 or 7 incher?
    I will be saving for wider rims but i need the tires now. So instead of buying twice i want to use what rims i have and put bigger tires on them. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    I would think something in the 10"~12" wide range. What type are tire are you wanting to run? How tall? There are quite a few metric sizes in the 33"~35" range that might work. Of course, if you want to go tall you could run something like a 11x38x16 Bogger.

    def not 16x8. 16x7 at the most, but 6.5 sounds right.

    16 x 6.5 came on mine. Currently running 36x12.5x16 TSL radials purchased used from a member. They look tall and skinny but got the job done this past weekend on my first outing (Disney, OK).
