physically probably yes but its not gonna look very good and probably rub your leaf springs when you turn even a little. how wide are the tires? you can find 16x10's with the correct o/s for under $600 on ebay brand new.

i know this is a little old but i just put my 8 inch lift on and have stock 20s with 35s just to roll around on for now till my rims come in and they rub the leafs if i turn to sharp. i know the newer style rims(05+) sit in a little more than the older ones but it will probably still rub pretty bad
