Default 15 inch Wheel

Hey guys,
Just found out why my 15 inch rims will not be able to fit on my 2000 ram 1500.
Ends up my truck was the first year they went to a dual piston caliper. This makes the calipers even bigger. The backspacing on the wheels are 3.75". So i guess my question is, is there anyone who has a dual piston caliper set up for the 2nd generation running 15 inch wheels. If so could i get specs on your wheels?
Thanks for any help!!!!!!

True... When I was looking for 35's there was a set from a Dodge on 16's. My 03' has about a pinky finger gap between the inside of the 17's. I was talking to a local shop that installs lifts and stuff and he said he has personally shaved 5-10 Gen 3 Rams so they could run 16's.
