rim/tire size ??'s

Guys will rims off of a 05 and newer fit an 01 or an 04S.D.? My brother has a king ranch 04 with 18's and he's looking for some take off rim and tire combos to just mount up. Will the newer rims bolt right on or not. Also would they fit my 01? Thanks guys!

NO! I just went thru this and our leaf spring front end trucks came with 4.5 inch backspaced wheels. The coil spring fron end trucks came with 5.5 inch backspacing. The problem is the 5.5 inch backspaced wheels will rub the leafs and it kinda looks dumb with wheels sitting in as they do. I was told not to try wheel spacers but me being very stubborn I bought a set anyway and that was a waste of time. They are not ballanced and now the wheels rub the mudguards. I am now selling the wheels and spacers because I bought a lift and 35's If you have anymore questions let me know because I just did alot of research on wheel and tire combos for our trucks.

Is the bolt pattern more spread apart or what? For the longest time you could swap rims even with some dodges. Do you need to buy a different hub assembly?
