You can fit 99-06 on your truck. The thing is the 04-06 model rims you will need spacers so the rims will fit on the truck properly. You might even be able to get 07 rims on your truck but again you would need the spacers for them. I suggest just buying a set of aftermarket rims that you like for your year truck. Another thing to remember is that when you get a smaller or shorter side wall on the tire the ride of the truck will get rougher and change.

There are a lot of sites that list 99-04 and 05-07. A few local tire guys also said that it's the 05 and up rims that need spacers. I'm not sure I'm comfortable with the idea of spacers on my truck.. it's heavy and the last thing it needs is more stress on the wheel studs.

Unless these spacers are different than the ones I saw idiots running in years past, all I see is broken studs.
