Will the factory 17" wheels fit on an 03?

My truck is an 03 and has 16 inch wheels, but I was wondering if the 17 inch newer style wheels on the 05, 06, and 07's would fit? I found a set pretty cheap but they said they were for an 05 and up? Thanks.

They will rub in the front near full lock and your truck will look like a rail road maintenance vehicle. They have about a inch more back space. Meaning they move the tire in about a inch.

They will not work!! They will bolt up fine late 99 & up bolt pattern is 8 on 170, but all 05 and up or trucks with coils instead of leafs have a different offset, like he said they set to far in. 17's will hit the steering arm but the newer 18's are big enough to clear. I am running factory 18's off an newer truck on my 04 and they look goofy, found some 17's bought em put em on and truck wouldnt roll?? After looking close the steering arm was up against inside of rim.. Hope this helps

You can make it work with spacers... if of course you are okay with spacers. No opinion on spacers myself but you would certainly have to space the wheels out to counter the off set. Then you still have to watch the lock to lock turning and mind the rubs.

Thanks for the info, it doesn't matter how good of a deal it is if they won't work. I don't think that I want to use spacers either, oh well, thanks again.
