Great Tool for evaluating Tire/Wheel sizes (Backspace and Offset)

I found this during my research. Not sure if it has been posted here before but it's awesome. Gives you almost everything. I will post it in the tire section too.

Custom rims, wheel tire packages for your ride - RIMSnTIRES.com

I did the comparison between the 17" stock Tire/Wheel to the 16" Tire/wheel combo that I am going to. It's not perfect. Doesn't take into account if you go from alloys to steels but still a great tool

Moderator: May be a good idea to make it a sticky.

Hello SunnyK
I would like to thank you for the information you have provided, I was flying blind until I was able to read your posting. I'm now going with 16x8.5 -6 bs and I will be installing 285/75R16 Goodyear Silent Armor (Pro-Grade) tires.

98% of my Jeep use is long trips from SE Louisiana to Wyoming, and then 2% on the mountain trails.

So thank you.
