Subject: 16 inch rims on 2000 Dak
IP: Logged

Message:
Hello Fellow Daksters,

I have a 2000 CC 4x4 4.7 Dakota that currently has 31x10.5x15 tires and 15x8 wheels (Tire and Handling package). I can get a good deal on 16x8 rims off a 2003 Durango. My question is will the rims fit? Also, if they will fit, what size tires should I go for? I'm thinking 265x75x16. What do you all think?

Thanks

I put a set of 16's on my 2000 QC 4x4 along with some 265/70/16's. I actually put on a 265/75 just to see how it would fit. For my taste, I thought it was too close for comfort. For street driving it probably wouldn't be a problem. However, I didn't want to take a chance of fudgin up the front tires or bumper while 4wheelin with the tweakin and tortin that goes on. So, go for the 16's then put on a 75 to check it out for yourself.

The top two pics (with damage) have the standard 265/70R16 Goodyear RT/S crappy tires. The bottom two have Cooper Discover S/T 265/75R16

I will say that clearance is very tight with these tires. Normal driving doesn't show any problems (except a bit of rubbing on the bumper in reverse), but I'd be VERY careful wheeling with these unless you've added a lift kit or new bumper. There's a good chance if your wheel is turned half-way and you hit a big bump that you could jam it into the bumper.

Here's the numbers on the two tires. The first set of numbers come from tirerack.com on the set of Michelin LTX M/S 265/70/16 that I have on my truck along with the same tire in the 75 series.
265/70SR16 10.8" (width of tire) 30.6"(Diameter)
265/75SR16 11.5" (width of tire) 31.7"(Diameter)

These numbers come from Miata.net
Spec Sidewall Rad Dia Cir
265/70 7.3in 15.3in 30.6in
265/75 7.8in 15.8in 31.6in

The pictures in the previous post puzzle me. Then again, anything can happen
