I would like to get some other rims for winter tire use.
I was hoping to get 17 inch ones for it.
Any issues clearing the brakes with 17's?
What are decent quality 17's , that are not priced too high.
I prefer strength over looks.

we will use the winter tire/ rims in winter, and the stock 20's that have all season tires on them in the summer.
I changed my stock 20's in Nov. The 17" steel work just fine. No issue's with brake clearance. These trucks all have the same brakes whether they have 17" or 20" stock rims. I went with 265/70R17, Yokohama Geolander, 4 OEM steel rims. So far i'm happy with them. Your speedo will be off a bit due to the smaller diameter tire.
