Help a brotha out!! (16.5" wheels w/ 5 on 4.5 bolt pattern)

There is a guy selling some nasty tires off humvees.... they are 36s and says its a 16.5 inch rim. Does any body make a 16.5 inch rim with the 5x4.5 lug pattern. thx

If I remember correctly, 16.5 inch wheels don't have the step up on the wheel, so airing down to a lower pressure becomes risky as the bead comes off easier...Just so you know.

8 lug xj.

True, but they are double internal beadlocks.

I did a post with some notes/facts, it's under the wheels/tires/lifts section.
