Default 2wd rims on a 4wd?

I bought my ram with 15" outlaw2 wheels on it, which as you know 15" tires are getting impossible to find...and the prices for new ones are more than 20's...I've found a set of 06 17" aluminum rims from a 2wd 1500, which 17" tires are plentiful. My question is will these fit my 98 1500 4wd? I did a search but the search function here is different than what I'm used to on my other forums...so I couldn't find any information on the topic that was helpful, so I thought I'd ask here...

Don't quote me, but wheels that fit a 4wd should fit a 2wd no problem and vice versa. The bolt patterns don't change between 4wd's and 2wd's.

what he said ^^^^^ it's all about the bolt pattern. idk about your year but I know the newer rams can't fit 15" rims because they won't clear the brakes. 17" is as small as u can go

Check discount tires website and see if they have the same bold pattern. I have my 20's I bought for my 09 2wd ram on my 13 4wd.
