Question Switching tire sizes....

Hi there! I recently purchased a 2000 Ram 1500 Quad Cab. The person I bought it from just threw some assorted 16" tires on ((2) 245/70R16 a 255/70R16 and a 245/75R16) just to sell the truck. The rims are a matching set though.

Researching the specs on the 2000 I find that at production time there are multiple size tires used.
I have found some 235/70R16 for dirt cheap.
My question is this; Will I be able to mount these 235s on the rims that I have (they are for 16" tires) or will I have to buys rims also?

Unless the rims are really wide, you should be fine. What I would be more concerned with is the overall diameter of the tire. A 235/70/16 is only a 29 inch tire. The stock tire is closer to 32 inches.
