265/75 R 16 on 9" wide wheels
 
Is 9" too wide of a wheel for 265/75 R16, if not airing-down super low?

Bobs85Reny 03-19-2013 03:04 PM

It depends on the tire. I am running AT Revo's 265/65 r17 on 9"s. and have no issue. Some of the MT's that size are recommending only 8.5". Tire rack has a spec on the rim widths for each tire.

Probably going with Mastercraft Courser M/T II
Summit's site says 7"-9" for these, but I like second opinions.

You should be fine then. I would be more concerned about the backspacing on the rim. I would not want to have more than 4" to 4.5" anymore than that and you may have rub issues on the inside if you ever wanted larger tires

Yeah, I've been looking for something alloy that's under $140 apiece, 16", black, 4.5" backspacing or less, and has little or nothing as far as chrome/silver or fake bolt heads. Easier said than done. Sure, there are wheels like the Pro Comp 7069, but the style doesn't match the shape of my headlights. :-)

I went with the MT Sidebiters. nice alloy no bling. wanted 9s as well so I went with a 17. Seems to be more options in 17's. Both in rim and tire. Its as big of a rim as I would go before it starts looking like a rollerskate.

Agony Wagon 03-20-2013 07:47 AM

The Sidebiters would be perfect, but I can't find them in 16" diameter with 5 x 4.5" pattern, only in 15" diameter. I'm looking for tires that are right around 32", but very few are to be found for 15" wheels, and the ones I can find are $$$. I'll see how much more it will cost to go to 17" wheels.

They have them 16x8, 5 on 4.5 with 4.5 backspace. They are about $155 per wheel

Agony Wagon 03-20-2013 08:15 AM

Where did you find them?

Bobs85Reny 03-20-2013 08:55 AM

I can't find them. huh! I could of sworn they came in 16x8, 5x4.5. Sorry. Mine are 17x9 5x5.5 with 5 inch backspace. I am running 1.25' spidertrax wheel adapters to fit them on my LJ. which puts the backspacing to 3.75" They fit nice with no lift.

Here is a shot of how it looks

Agony Wagon 03-20-2013 10:31 AM

Looks good, man.
Spidertrax adapters would put me beyond budget, which would mean less money for other improvements.

Agony Wagon 03-20-2013 12:04 PM

Welp, I guess I'm gonna hafta compromise somewhere. Going up to 17" wheel definitely gives more options for tires, but only gives more options for wheels if I were driving a ricer.

Got it narrowed down to these:

Summit Racing Series 375 Black Ultimate Eight Wheels

Moto Metal Series MO951 Black Wheels (these are the 9" wide ones)
http://static.summitracing.com/globa...12055318_w.jpg

Pro Comp Xtreme Alloys Series 7089 Cast-Blast Black Wheels
http://static.summitracing.com/globa...89-29535_w.jpg

I'm leaning toward the Pro Comps, although I think they kinda look like steelies.

Now that I think about it... I could get some steelies, and free up some money to get some better tires.

Also, I thought this was funny:

It will work and you can do it.

Personally, I think it looks like a$$. It's just too much wheel for too little tire.

I always liked the AEV Pintler's They discontinued them. But if you shop around you can still find them
