um a 33x12.5x15 will not fit on a 16" rim.... that said, a 285/75/16 is close to a 33" tire in height, and not too far off in width.... and are available in BFGs

not all jeep rims will fit an explroer, some will, some wont, it's trial and error really..... aftermarket wheels might fit, but really would need t obe testfitted to be sure.... there are a lot of differences that determine if a rim will fit or not.....

Hey, I have cheap rims off of a jeep on my explorer that you saw pictures of. As long as the bolt pattern is 5 on 4.5" they will work on your Explorer and I went with 3.75" on the backspacing.

Cherokee and Wrangler wheels will not fit an Explorer, because the center bore is too small. The lug pattern is the same on both, however the backspacing on most Jeep wheels is 5.25", versus 4.625" on most Explorer wheels.

Aftermarket Jeep wheels would probably fit, because most have a "one size fits all" center bore, and less backspacing than stock.
