What are you upgrading to?
From: 16x8 - 4.5 backspacing - 0mm offset
305/70-16 tire

To: 17x9 - 4.5 backspacing - (-12mm) offset
305/70-17 tire

You could go with 17x9, 4.5 backspacing and -12mm offset...That would push your wheels out about an inch over what you currently have using the same tires.

There's a ton ton of "wheel" and "tire" threads on here...You gotta dig and search to find what will work and what wont...
