Show me your pics of 16 inch alloys that fit Hilux

I'm looking for a 16x7 or 16x8... show me some pics of what you've got and list their offsets.
Post obscure and lesser known brands too.
I want to run 265/70R16's or even 265/75R16's

My heart saying buy 17 inch.... but my brain is saying buy 16's. In reality, I want the biggest sidewall I can get without going crazy illegal. I'm currently running dynamic 17 inch steelies with 265/65R17, but if I buy bigger tires for these, I will be way above legal.

I don't have any pic's, but I'm running 235/75/15s not so much for side wall height but because for some reason the 15" tyres are cheaper to buy than 16" which seem cheaper than 17". The smaller the rim the greater the amount of materials needed for the same rolling diameter in tyres, so I don't understand why they seem cheaper but this is my experience. Being a pensioner paying off a mortgage, every little bit counts and so I'm always looking for the best tyre price I can get. I still have the 16" rims in the shed if my next purchase turns out to be cheaper that way, then I can just swap over. Looking at tyres in the next month or so I've been looking and the 15" still seem to be the more affordable way to go.

Yeah, right, I was looking at a mates Jeep not long ago and he had the same issue, coming up for new rubber and couldn't go to a smaller rim because the calipers on the jeep wouldn't allow smaller than 17". I think from memory his was around 2004 or 2005 ish model too. The bigger caliper sizes seem to have come in around that time I guess. Any idea what the 2005 (newer shape) Hilux will take in a rim size? Not important if you don't know, just interested, that's all.

Yeah, right. Only guessing but it'll probably all change again when they move away from the internal combustion thing as well. Be interesting to see what developments they come with and how they incorporate it all.
