View Full Version : Have any of you Yota owners gone to a 16" rim?

Hey Everyone,
I've been running some 35x15x10 and have upgraded to pizza cutting 38x16x11 I would like to know what backspacing of rims to look for because I like my tires to stick out 1.5 - 2 inches past the fenders.....plus an offset rim will help me clear my leafs for my turning radius. They're going under a built sas'd runner. Is there a stock 16x7 steel rim that has a decent offset that i'm unaware of......the reason I'd like to go with a stock steel rim is because of the cost. I like the idea of picking up a set of cheap junkyard chevy rims.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

What do you mean by that?

most stock vehicles with 16" rims and a six bolt patern will have masive back spacing
nissans toys chevys there all set up that way to move your wheels out youll be looking to the aftermarket for sure

Really.....thanks for the reply. What do you think my BEST option would be if i were to go the stock route (out of all the choices you mentioned)? I didn't realize Nissan made a 16" rim.

Holy $#!@
I think i'm clueing in now........I'm definately going to have to go aftermarket......do you know how much offset I'd be looking to go for? I would like my pizza cutting 38x16x11's to sit a 1-2 inches out of the well/body of my hacked up runner.

Hey chris,
Your probably going to need around a 3" back space. When I had 15x8's with 3.5" of bs on my runner the 12.5" wide tires were hangin out about 2".

just curious why you would have got tires for a 16" rim?

the rims themsleves are usually more expensive, harder to find, and getting beadlocks for them will be a lot harder & more expensive too

I think you're best bet would be to find the cheapest 16" rims you can find and run some wheel spacers to get the width you want

Hey Guys......thanks for the reply,
The rim size wasn't exactly my choice.....My buddy imported some Military tires in and like a fat kid and cake, my buddies and I all jumped on'em. We'll all be running these huge heavy and damn near bulletproof pizza cutters. I'm not too worried about the cost of the beadlocks because luckily I have access to a C&C Machine. I'll probably cut up quite a few and hook up the FunInBC members:) But that's all in good time....first i just need to find the right offset of rim to go with...because as i said before I'd still like to be able to turn these things without rub. I'm not really a big fan of spacers because they become a weaklink of the axle...as it is I'm already running a 3.4 inch spacer on my front axle to push the front width out to equal my rear wide track housing.
Thanks for your time guys.
