Get some 15x4 and 15x10 Weld rims.

Get the 16s. The 17s look like twanky fo's, only downsized.

I don't like either they are old and out of production, but 17" tires will be easier and cheaper to find and Eagle wheela are built like crap. AR is built well.

If i had to choose between those, the 17"s hands down. Larger diameter and width. No way youll put any fat tires on a 16x8. A 17x10 on the other hand will easily handle a 315.

Actually not that hard. Aftermarket ones are easy to come by, and pretty cheap.
