    I've always liked the M/T's myself. I don't know how much "back spacing" you will need to look for, but if you can measure the back spacing on the stock OEM wheel it should get you close. Good luck!

    Offset between 31mm and 18mm should fit nicely. 31mm will have an 8.5" wheel sitting flush with the fenders,(without flares), then the less positive offset you have, the more they will stick out.

    stock rims for the 2500 are 16x7 with 5" backspacing and i believe 0mm offset. So if u want to stay with 16s then find a 16x8 rim with 4.5" backspacing with positive offset u should be pretty close.
