Aftermarket wheel sizes
 
I'm debating on if I should go with 15x10 wheels or 15x8 wheels with the factory ride hight. Can I see pictures of your trucks with either wheel size so I can decied? Thanks!

You may have a hard time fitting a 15" wheel over your front brake calipers.

Really? I thought a lot of guys were running 15's on this gen Ram. I don't like thin sidewall tires. Chrome 16x10 wheels are hard to find (least the onesI want). Alunimum is nice, but harder to keep shiney.

I was also under the impression those gen trucks came stock with 15" wheels.

On the 00/01, they changed to a larger caliper so the 15" wheels won't fit.

Hmmm, guess I'm going to have to find some 16x10 or 16x9.5 wheels then. Kinda sucks though cause the wheels I was going to put on the truck don't come in 10's on 16in wheels.

Could do 17's.....? many more options.

I am old school. I really don't care for the big wheels. I like a lot of side wall on my tires.

I agree, but 17" isn't really that big for these full size trucks. I have 17" on my truck and they look tiny. 17" is the new 15" haha. You may also find that 16" tires are very expensive due to them being an off size.

I agree...I have 18's though with 285X75 tires....I gots lots of sidewall.
