Yes. Stock offset is +30mm, so that means this wheel will only stick out 15mm (about 0.6 inches). You can run a 1.5" spacer with that size tire and fit with just melt mod, so your combo should fit fine.

Couldn't find this info on this thread. So, I thought I would add it to help a few folks out there concerned about the limited options.

Bolt patterns on most wheels can be changed. Wheel repair shops (I use Jason's Wheel Shop (JWS) in Chino CA) have the equipment to plug the existing lug holes and redrill to the lug pattern you need. Cost varies depending on the shop. I think it is about $30-35 a wheel but my old ass brain is having a memory lapse.

Sorry I don't have pix, but, any decent sized city should have a wheel shop close by you can google and get info. We were able to get Jeep bolt pattern 5x5.5 re-drilled to a 6x4.5 to fit an Xterra. Since we were able to order the offset and backspace we wanted to. The wheels fit great with no spacers or adapters. The wheel will not lose any integrity so long as it's a quality wheel. The wheel shop will let you know what to look for. The wheels we modded were XD's.

This is partially right, since the width of both wheels is different the new wheel will stick out more than just the difference in offset. A 16x8 15mm offset wheel will stick out 28mm more than a 16x7 30mm offset wheel.

Always loved those wheels. What size tire did you run? Stock suspension?
