Default Just a little help please

I have a 2002 dodge ram 1500 SLT Quadcab 4x4 with a 5.9L V8. it came stock with 17in rims. I just bought a set of 16in rims to put on it. now the problem is that the brake calibers are getting in the way and will not let the wheel rotate. I thought dodge came with 13in rotors so can anyone tell me why i am haveing this problem.

you would need to add a bit to the rotor measurement to allow for the caliper to clear the wheel too. That clearance would also be measured against the inner diameter of the wheel. 16 inches is the outer diameter of the wheels that you bought, so the inner diameter will be less than that.

whoever you bought the rims from should have asked you for the exact specs of your truck before you bought them...to ensure that they will fit correctly...it may just be that style of rim wont fit the truck, or they gave you the wrong size...

whoever sold it to you, should have told you that then...I would call them and ask them...If it was a dealership, they def should have let you know that...I would also call where you got the rims from and tell them that they do not fit properly, and tell them why...Maybe the still sent you the wrong rims...
