16x10s an inch wider than 16x8s

my 16x8s with 3.5" backspaceing.

16x10s with 4 7/16" (4.5) will only be overal 1" wider than my 8" wide wheels with the 1" of added baclspaceing, is the that right to think that or am I gona have that way to wide stance after the wheel swap

or go with 17x9s with 5" backspaceing, these are ideal but tire selection isnt all that great.

ohhhh these are all MT classic II wheels with 8 lugs.

or my last option is to go with 8 lug *" wide wheels, butt that I dont want to do becase my tires are gona be 38x13s. 10" wheel i think would be perfect.

Re: 16x10s an inch wider than 16x8s

well Id run 8" wheels to hell and back, but I want my tires to wear somewhat decent, since alot of drivn will be on the street. I dont want the wider stance, I want the wider wheel,

Id run 10" wheel with like 6"s of backspaceing and be happy as all get out. I dont want wider.

thats why the 17x9 with 5" backspaceing is so apealing to me

So your doing all this solid axle swap stuff and big tires so you can drive around on the street all day eh? You should get the 6" wide rim, be cool.

Just remember, bead retention is a good thing! The narrower the rim the more pressure on the bead thus you can air down slightly more. If your going to run beadlocks disregard what was said above.
