17" rims from a 2005 Ram 1500 going on my 1999 1500.
My objective: find ideal tire size without the tire sticking out too much.
I bought a set of stock rims off a 2005 1500, 2WD to replace the crappy aftermarket rims on my 1999 1500, 2WD. Stock suspension with 3/4 spring spacer in front to level front end.
The PO took a narrower aftermarket 16" rim and put 285's on it and they look rounded and sort of squished on in my opinion and they handle terribly.
I got the stock 17" rims to hopefully create a more aggressive appearance and beefier off-road kind of look.
The 17's should be 17x8.5 with 4.75" backspacing compared to the 16's at 16x7.0 and 5" backspacing.
Right now, I'm thinking 275's would be ideal, if not, 265's.
What say y'all?
