02Ram4.7 is on a distinguished road
Default 16" wheels on an 02 1500

first off, I would like to say hello. Just joining the forum. I have had my Ram for a while now, and just not getting around to throwin money at it lol.

Anyways, to my question.. Does anybody know if you can fit a 16" wheel onto an 02 or newer truck (1500)?

I see some people say no, and some say yes. It has 20s on it now and I am wanting to go down to a 16.

Can it be done with spacers?

Thanks in advanced guys

Hi and a warm Carolina welcome to the best RAM ForumZ on the web. How about using the link in my SIG to join us on the Newbie Checkin and posting a few photos of your truck?

I've read the smallest diameter wheel for GEN 2 and up are 17" to clear the brake calipers.

It might be able to be done, but I wouldn't risk it without a test fit first. Because while my truck was having exhaust work done, I was checking out the wheels up in the air, and even with 17's, there wasn't much room around the drums in the back and even less room around the calipers and rotors up front. My advice would be to go to a tire shop and see if the have any 16" wheels sitting around for you to try and put on real quick to see if they'll clear.

The only limiting factor here is finding a 16" wheel that will clear the brakes.
