Why does it have to be 16.5?

That's what thoughs boggers were....
I'm debating these tires right now
32x11.5 is more aggressive
33x12.5 bigger ad less aggressive

I have never heard of a 16 1/2" wheel. How does that even work?

Not very well it's a old Chevy size

The tires I posted are for a 16 inch rim

So Why not buy cheap 15 inch steel wheels, there are tons of tires that will fit...

It would clear under the knuckle with 15s. OTK requires cutting off sway bars, relocating the track bar, trimming the coil buckets and will also hit aftermarket diff covers oh and the dead spot in the steering but that applies to over and under.

I guess what Im getting at is there is much better steering options that dont need a more expensive tire and wheel combo.

And when you get into WJ knuckle swaps and etc you will lose that, even with the spacer welded on, personally I would rather have the extra clearance just incase something did happen: for instance without properly BS'd wheels running OTK you barely clear (if at all, depending on which set up you run), if you're on the trail and you bend or brake your tie rod, that 15" wheel is going to eat it if you don't react correctly.

You're right though, I wouldn't make 16" wheels (or larger) a priority at the moment if I was him, though it wouldn't hurt to look into ordering them one at a time or so and building them up for the proper set up while still maintaining the best money spent:usefulness ratio.
