Regarding your measurement: It does not matter what numbers you come up with unless you are buying without actually being where the new wheels are. What is important is that you measure the exact same way every time to match what you have. Your tires are plenty wide so I would not go wider there. Most important is to maintain the proper offset (the distance from the edge of the wheel to the mounting surface) A wheel that extends too far outboard can hit the fender on bumps and hard turns...Too far in can cause wheel to contact brake caliper. You may be able to use a 15" wheel, but may have the same clearance problem if you do.
The other important item to consider is the size of the center hole...It must be the same size as the hub or it may not fit over it.
One thing often forgotten is that varying tire size will change your final drive ratio. At minimum it will throw off your speedometer. At worst, it will influence your engine control as the speed sensor will tell the computer one thing and the remainder of the sensors will be telling it something else. Best option is to stick with a tire/wheel combination that is close to what you have size wise, and just buy something that you like as far as design.

Currently my 88 Chev half ton has 15'' rims,5 bolt pattern. Can I put 16" rims on?

Dear Lawrence,
This should be fine.
However, remember some precautions.
Be sure the 16's have the same bolt pattern, and, most important, be sure there is clearance for the tires and the wheels.
Both tires and wheels have different sizes, widths, and heights.
I would try a 16 on each location front & rear and test it before you go out and buy anything.
You are particularly looking inside the tires and wheels to be sure nothing will rub, especially when the truck bounces up and down, and when you turn the steering wheel all the way.
God bless our efforts.

Can you put 16" tires

Yes you can. Many of the later 90's trucks came factory with 16" wheels and share the same bolt pattern. Be careful you don't purchase 6 lug wheels which the 4wd trucks use.

What size tire do i need for an 01 dodge grand caravan?

You can find this solution at There are a few options you need to know about the vehicle such as trim level (ES, Sport) and if its front wheel drive or all wheel drive. You can also find this information on the sidewall of your existing tires. It should be be in a format such as 215/65 16 or 215/65R16. The 215 refers to the tire width, the 65 to the ratio of the side wall compared to the tire width and the 16 or R16 is the size of the wheel (rim).

Bent rims

You have some options. Many rims have the size stamped on the rim. You may have to remove it to find it. There are several web sites that sell use or new wheels. You could look through their catalogs an find a match. I have also gone to the junk yard and found a match for a car I used to own.
You could measure the wheel, but that doesn't mean that every rim that size would fit your car.
