16.5 wheels??

I recently got my hands on some 16.5 ford wheels which are 12in wide i believe...I am pretty sure they will bolt to my truck but i will def need flares. My question is how hard are 16.5 tires to get, i have looked online a bit and came up with very few of them. my plan is to level my truck and run 35x12.5 16.5s...any info whether it be good or bad is appreciated!
