Firestone and milestar are the only radial 16.5's that i know of, but may want to look into just switching wheels to 16's. Even if you have 4 and a spare, if you get into a position that you need a tire (say you hit something in the road), NOBODY keeps them in stock and you will be waiting. At least with a 16, you know they are readily available.

New Dodge wheels will fit too and they are 17's. Much easier to find

Lots of factory wheel options are available in several diameters, as the wheels are a 8x6.5" or a metric size of 8x165.1 (8x165)

Factory wheels off these will fit (This is not all inclusive, I am sure there are more):
Dodge 8 Lug wheels 1946-present, I believe.
Ford 8 Lug Wheels 1955-1998.
Chevy & GMC 8 lug wheels 1967-2011.

Pretty sure 8 lug Hummer H1 and H2 Wheels will fit as well, but I think the H1 were 16.5".
