    Tim, The 16" creased rims like that can be had in 4 1/2", 5, and 6" widths. I've got a pair of 5's that I need to find another pair to make a set.
    You might specify what width you are looking for if it matters.

    Thanks Donny, best I can tell with tires on, they are 5" at their widest point (to very edge of rim), so I would guess maybe 4 1/2"? Being a spare though, I'd probably be willing to entertain any of the three widths listed depending on availability.

    I have one or two that look like that (untrained eye). Not sure of the width. I will try to locate pictures if you don't think shipping will ruin it. How does 25 plus shipping sound, assuming it is what you are looking for (after you see pictures).

    I may have a lead on one, but yes, pictures would be helpful just to keep my options open. These wheels can be tricky with their subtle differences.

    There are also beadlock and non beadlock 16's if that matters...

    Thank you Fesser, I spy one that matches in that set. Top right in first photo, bottom left in second photo (if I picked up the camera angle change correctly).

    Three different wheels there i think. In the first photo, top left and bottom right look to match. Smooth curve on the center all the way to where it meets the rim. 3 rivets at each attachment point. Bottom left has a step or crease in the curved center part just before where it attaches to the rim, 2 rivets at each attachment point, different hub mounting surface. The top right one matches my original post photos.

    Do you happen to know how wide it is? Be good to know overall width and bead mounting surface to bead mounting surface. Thanks!

    Just out of curiosity, what do we call the rim (top photo) in the lower left with the half-bump at the lug holes? It also has a hint of a crease where the center meets the rim hoop. I've seen these around a few times. Anyone know what they came on, like CJ2as?

    They came on 2As, I believe, and were manufactured by Motor Wheel. I have what appears to be a knock-off and was pulled from an early Suzuki Jimny.
