Default What size wheel?

Hi,

I have a 2003 xlt fx4 that im going to be putting a 3" PA Bodylift on.
I currently have 16" stock wheels.

I want to put the mickey thompson mtz's on (33x12.5x16), as far as the wheel, should I go with 16x8 or the 16x10....

I really want to go wider but I am not sure if Ill be rubbing.. I want 0 rubbing, even when offroading it.

This is a daily driver as well as the toy.

Thanks

These stickies should steer you in the right direction.

if you want a 33x12.5x16 tire it will be a 305/75/16 tire i believe but go with a 15x8 wheel easier to find the appropriate backspacing and tires for 15" rims are much much cheaper

Ok, that leads me to the next question.

if money is no option, would it be better to run a 16x10 or a 15x10?
Do I have the clearance to run the 16x10 with my 3" BL?

I saw the sticky about the max tire size, but what about max wheel size with my lift?

The 15x8 doesnt seem wide enough for what I like.

Thank you all for responding, cheers!

well if you get a 15x8 with around 3.65-3.75 backspacing and some 33x12.5x15s youll stick out past the flares. and a 16x10 vs a 15x10 no real big difference just the backspacing is key and what tire size is a big factor
