2008 RAM Wheel size question

Recommended Posts

The 2008 RAM 1500 came factory with 17" wheels. It has disc brakes front and rear. Anyone know if a 16" wheel will fit? Just bought this puppy, love the truck, but not crazy about 20" wheels.

k 17" it is. need to find some tires close to 35", but i dont want to go wide. my current tires convert to a 34.1"x10.8". I know they have 35x12.5x17 but I dont want to go that wide. any suggestions? I'm a fan of the pizza cutters! lol

At first I was going to say Shaner is right... But this being a 1/2 ton... I am not sure. On the 3/4 and 1 tons the brakes are big enough that even a 16.5 won't clear the calipers (I was goofing around one time when I had a wheel off.)!

I just don't remember what they did with the brakes on those... (Shane did you realize this is a 1/2 ton?)

I could try a wheel off of my girlfriends 99 dodge half ton and see I guess if a 16" will fit? Same bolt pattern? She is running the stock dodge 16"'s.

thats a waste of time, like Shaner said. all third gens. thats 03 and up 1/2, 3/4 and 1 ton pickups. have bigger breaks and take 17" or large rims..

It would be a waste of time. The upgraded brakes are so big even a 16.5" wheel hits the caliper!! The bolt pattern is the same though....
