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.

True, but they are double internal beadlocks.

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