Recommend me some 16/17 inch alloys that will fit 265/70/16

I'm so confused about offset. There are a tone of lovely Prado rims that have +25 offset, but they don't fit why?

I want alloys because steelies rust quickly, fade and just look generally povo.

Whats a 16 inch or 17 inch that will 100% fit my 2012 hilux workmate. I intend to put 265/70R16's or 265/65R17's depending on the rim I get .Muddies are going on them.

I've spend year offroad with allows and never had any issues with them.

Show me your alloys.

I don't have alloys. I prefer to run steellies because they are cheaper (to replace if I need to) and easier to repair when I'm in the bush. Carry a generator and a small stick welder and you're all set. Carrying TIG for alloys is just too much hassle. Having said that, in the past 40 odd years I've never actually needed to repair a rim when in the bush. On the road I've cracked a few alloys and only ever bent one steel rim. Most tire dealers have rims for sale, choose what you want from there or look on the internet, my current steel rims were around $25 each on ebay.
By the time they rust beyond being usable I'll be pushing up daisies. I also have some 60 series chromies (steelies) in my shed that go well on the hilux. Mixing around Toyota to toyota isn't too hard. Mixing around the manufacturers is where you need to be careful.
Offset (if I'm not mistaken) is where the studsgo through the rim in relation to where the inside side wall of the tyre sits. The wrong amount of offset and your tyres will rub on various parts of your vehicle. Sometimes the guard or sometimes the linkages. You also need to be careful with diameter. 15" rims fit fine on my 2004 hilux, but I was looking at a similar aged Jeep a whole ago and it will not take anything less than a 17" because of the diameter of the brake disc and calipers.

I'm no moderator, but I am guessing that they would prefer you post all your queries (on the same subject) in the same thread, it helps them keep track of things easier.

Ended up getting 265/70R16 Maxxis Razr 772 on 16x8 inch rim with +20 offset. Couldn't be happier. Absolutely amazing tire with probably the best side wall protection around. Quiet as a mouse on the road. Highly recommend.

Yeah, a mate has Maxxis on his ute (navara). I'd like to be able to afford the Maxxis tyres, the look to wear fairly well.

My mate has ATs on his Navara and constantly driving wet dirt roads with steep hills, not had any real issues.
