Wheel Question?

i have read on here that newer model wheels will fit on older model trucks but the newer wheels won't work on the older ones. is this true? i have a 03 X and want to put a set of newer 20in stock wheels on it. is there anything that can be machined? or modded to make this work?

They won't fit, they'll rub the leaf springs! You could put a spacer behind it, but you would be better off buying a set of 20's that will work right on your truck. Just my

I have them on mine, and i got an 04. They will rub, but i bought the 1/4 inch spacer plates. That took care of the rubbing. Oh yea by the way i have 20's. 275/75/20 tires. And those are equiveilent to 34's, without a leveling kit.

When I do the conversion for those tires i get 275/25.4 = 10.83 inch wide tire 10.83 * .75 gives me 8.1 inches of side wall height.... 8.1*2 then add 20 and i get 36.2 inch tall tire. Did I do the conversion right??? If so that not a 34" tire...one of the number has to be off somewhere...im willing to bet if u say its a 34 inch tire thats a 275/65.
