Semi frequent visitor but first time poster. Decided against buying a gladiator just yet and sticking with my 14’ 4x4 Pat a bit longer (I wouldn’t trade it in anyway honestly, I’ll keep it til she dies). So I decided on some fun/long put off upgrades.

got my new 235/70 r16 Toyo open country ATIII’s installed this week on stock 16’s (so far I love them). Only a minor rub at full lock, but I understand this can be easily fixed by clipping a 4x4-5x5 square from the inside cover, so no biggie.

looking at new steels for something simple but a bit more aggressive (and in black)…it’s turning into a chore trying to find the right combination. I want to set the tires a little farther out, but nothing crazy.

any wheel suggestions? Is 0 offset too much or just right?

I think that looks good. Might look into them for myself! I think plasti-dipping or painting your wheels black would look good while also being cheap to do!

Since you'll be making mods, 0 offset would work as long as the wheel is around 8-inches wide.

Cragar offers their Soft 8 in 16x8 with +13mm offset which may be worth a look. Compared to stock, the 16x8 with +13mm offset is going to sit 1-3/4 inches further outwards where as a 16x8 with 0 offset will sit 2-1/4 inches further out.

I just purchased some new 235 / 70 R16 tires and they are working great on my stock 16" wheels, same rims as PolishGuy's pics - with no rubbing or issues, I love em!

I'm also looking for new rims - a more aggressive off-road looking, reasonably priced black steel type of thing.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
