In most cases, that tire size is approved for a 6.5" to 7.5" wheel. I think 16x7 would be ideal. 16x6 will give more sidewall bulge and probably a much softer ride because of that. Handling probably won't be great though. How about some 265/70R16's on those 16x8's? They're only 0.5% bigger in diameter.

I can but wasn't too enthused with having to buy new tires - only have 8-9k on the Revo's. Can't find the 16x7 without paying $$$. I was afraid of hearing that - harsher ride. Thnks for the input.

16x6 steel wheels or 16x8 alloy wheels (declared to be 7# lighter on all 4 corners then the smaller steel wheels) Tires will be P245/75 R16

Aluminum alloy wheels will roll smoother/truer than a comparable steely. Stick with alloys if you can.
