question over rims
can you run the polished 5 spokes like on the '03-'05s on the 2011s?

I have not found the wheel specs (bolt circle) specs on the new trucks but Dodge hasn't changed the 5-bolt 1/2T dimensions in years.

So measure your bolt circle. Here's the specs I have:

Torque Spec
• 80-110 ft lbs (108-150 Nm) on 5 stud wheels
2000-2003 1500 2WD/4WD 17" Steel Wheels (Chrome or painted)
• Lug Pattern: 5 on 5 1/2
• Rim Size: 17x7"
• Fits 94 and up 1500 trucks
2000-2003 1500 2WD/4WD 17" Aluminum Wheels (posted to DiRT by Mat Felthousen):
• Lug Pattern: 5 on 5 1/2
• Weight: 23.5 pounds
• Rim Size: 17x8"
• Actual width edge to edge: 9 1/16"
• Backspacing: 5 9/16".
• The space from the outside edge to the mounting surface (against the rotor) is 3 1/2".
• offset calculate: 1 1/32"
• Fits 94 and up 1500 trucks

Yes you can. I've seen it on a couple of trucks around here

I guess I shoulda specified the 20"rims. I think they will, I looked at a newer one today with mine next to it and I don't think they changed the pattern at all. Anyways how much did everyone pay for their trucks? I found a nice rcsb for 21k w/o talking to the guy at all and think it's not a bad price.

New or used? And what did it look like?

As long as they came off a 1/2T you should be good.

I paid nothing for my truck...I stole it... :D

its a 2011 brand new with 57 total miles.
its not an r/t but its what i want. i really wish theyd make a 6 speed 392 edition as an srt8 rcsb

That's the express. It's an st with sport bumpers and grille, 20" wheels, and the hemi standard. Very nice truck for the money. I've seen some dealers around me marking those down to around $18,000. This guy got the tradesman which is an st with a hemi standard for around $18,000; so you should be able to get a similar deal since the only differences between the express and tradesman is the 20" wheels and the sport bumpers and grille
