Will 16 x 8 wheels fit on p225/75R16 tires?

Postby Isuzu_Rodeo<3 » Fri Sep 23, 2016 4:04 pm

I just bought five 16 x 8 rims for my 95' Rodeo, I checked the inspection sticker on the side of the door just now and it says that the current rims are 15 x 6, the width isn't what I'm worried about. Will the rims be to big for my tires? I hope not because I already bought the damn rims!

Check the numbers on your actual tires. The number after the "R" is the rim diameter. 225 75R16 fits a 16" wheel, so if that's the case your truck already has 16" wheels on it.

An 8" wheel is really too wide for a P225 75R16, but you might get away with it with no serious issues if you can get the beads to seat. It might look a little funny or wear unevenly.
