Good luck on the 16x7" steelies!! You might see if the spare wheel from a later Explorer or ranger would work... Same bolt pattern I think. Jeep didn't do a 16x7 steel that I'm aware of, and I've yet to see a decent looking aftermarket steel in 16x7. If you're not completely opposed to aluminum, I'm partial to the Icon style 5-spoke wheel.After much researching, A/T3 is my tire of choice, so many positive reviews! I'll be purchasing the A/T3 in size 265/75R16 ( 31.6 OD, 10.49 section width ) Load Range C, now I'll have to find a set of 16x7 steelies!
Oh, that's right! Those were sorta ugly 5-spoke steelies, but a good steel 16x7 wheel. They do have a little more backspacing than most TJ wheels, but that just means they work well with 1" spacers and 215's or 235's. Or they keep the mud spray to a minimum by tucking the tires inside the fenders.The lowly KJ Liberty had a 4.5x5 pattern and all of them had 16" wheels. Lots of base steel ones out there.
