Wheel and Tire Advice

I am trying to go with 315x75R16/17's and want to know what the best wheel width would be? 16x8, 16x9, 17x8.5, or 17x9's. Would like to stick with the 16s for price purpose, but would be good with 17's as well. Also, what is an ideal back spacing? Will be doing a RE 3.5 Super Flex short arm kit. Thanks in advanced..

You can run 37's with 3.5" of lift and some flat fenders. You'll likely want to regear though. For this look at 17x9's with a 4.5" backspace or less. (-12mm offset or lower)

Unfortunately the 17x8.5 MB Motoring Stryker has been discontinued. This model/size wouldn't have worked anyhow as the backspace is on the high side for 37's. If you liked the Stryker then you'll probably like the 17x9 (4.5" BS) Black Rhino Rockwell
