Default proper fitting 16x8 wheels

USA-based NM here, so i'm not subject to the authoritarian wheel/tyre laws i hear you folks talking about...

my question is this:

currently running 265/75-16 on stock 16x7 wheels, which are beyond tatty. am i correct that they have a 6 x 5.5" bolt circle and +46mm offset? it's the offset that seems hardest to swallow.

anyway, wanting to find some inexpensive 16x8 wheels that will fit more or less properly and allow a 285/75-16 tire (with my 50mm OME lift). a brief look at some of the big USA tire/wheel sellers turns up exactly nothing...

Toyota and Nissan run the same 6 stud bolt pattern, but not sure on the offset. And out here, they do come with 16x8 rims. Not sure in your area, but worth checking out at a wrecker maybe.

Have a check of the fitment to the Toyota tacoma rims?
I believe the stud pattern is the same, offset should fit around 20mm (more choice) or +30mm will be cloaser to standard.

BTW Hummer H3 rims may fit as well with a +38 offset Just got to be careful of the barke clearence.

Ive just replaced my standard 16x7 rims with aftermarket 16x8 rims for the exact same reason. ie fitting 285/75/16's. The offset is +25, and they fit great. They have widened the wheel track by 31mm on each side. Check the pic below for the specs. Hope it helps. I dont have the 33's fitted yet.
