Question Swap our Laramie wheels for Rebel wheels

I'm going to be pulling a camper and the ghetto 20" wheels with 4 ply tires aren't going to hack it. I would like to switch to an OEM Rebel size tire and wheel setup.
What is the backspace and size 17" wheel I need to match the 20" wheel?

Not sure what the 2018 specs are, here are my 2016 specs:
Rebel - 17x8.0 Wheel - Offset +18.05 mm - Back Space 5.50”, 29 lbs
Big Horn - 20x8.0 - Offset +19.5 mm - Back Space 5.25”
Laramie - 20x9.0 Wheel - Offset +19.5 mm - Back Space 5.75"

I changed out my 20" stock wheels to the Rebel 17" wheels.
Fit perfect and very satisfied.

There is no difference between your 2018 Laramie and a Rebel of any year prior to 2019, as far as wheel fitment goes. You won't have any problems going with wheels that will fit a 4th gen Rebel.

If the amount of lugs is the same, it should not matter

OEM Gen4 17" tire size is 265/70-17 ...


BUT you should play with https://tiresize.com/tyre-size-calculator/ using your existing tire size,
then decide whether to pick a 17" tire that's close to that same diameter,
or a different size..
then deal with the incorrect speedo & odo

or pay to have dealer (try to) recalibrate

or get a tuner which allows tire size calibration of speedo & odo
