i was wondering why on ebay and many other sites that sell wheels for rams 2003 and up say that they will only fit those years. just recently i saw a 2001 body style 1500 driving down the road with the 2006 20" OEM rims on it. i thought they couldnt fit on it. did the guy mod his truck to get them on or will it fit. ive seen online that the 2001 to 2006 rams all have 5x5.5 bold pattern. so will the new rims fit on an older ram? help me out.
