Wheel interchage??
I have a 2001 dodge 1500 quad cab 4x4. I want to do a simple two inch level kit to fit 35's (I have 3.92 gearing so they will be okay till I can afford the regear).... question is I have stock steel wheels,,, I love the look but the backspacing is horrendous....

I would like to know what other rims may interchange with my dodge? Maybe 5 lug ford? I believe that I need somewhere in the neighborhood of 3.5 to 4 inch backspacing minimum with a 8 inch wide rim..... I do some offroading but no hardcore stuff!

Thanks in advance,,, didn't find it in the search...

oh and here's a pic of the truck with bald 285's on it ,,, nothing fancy,,, working on it slowly but surely,, ,nice thing it's only got 77k original on the truck, with a 5.9 gas motor!

As long as the bolt pattern is a 5x5.5(139.7) then they will fit. It does not just have to be a 5 bot they do have a pattern. So see if the rims are that then they should go right on...which I think different companies make different bolt patterns. I might be wrong I never have looked into Ford rims haha

part of the reason I asked was because a friend had a set of 5 x 5.5 bolt pattern off a grand cherokee and they did not fit,,, even though the bolt pattern was the same the wheels would not sit flush on my rotors...

I have a 2007 Ram, this info I have is for that. I am not sure what the 2nd gens will be but I think they will be close. I am not sure of the stock backspacing I forget it...I do think it is 5. I know my rims now are a 4.8 backspacing. The other thing would be offset but that should not really affect it. The stock 20s are a +20mm offset, mine now are a -18mm. Not sure what else you would really need to know.

The jeep wheels have a different center hub setup and won't sit flush (they aren't hub centric) so I'm not surprised that's what you found.

It's either going to be an upgraded/newer ram wheel or aftermarket that will fit correctly.
