It depends on the backspacing of the rim.
Stock 17" rims won't fit because they have too much backspacing (about 5-3/4") and will hit the tie rod ends.

If the 17" rims you are looking at have 4-1/2" or less backspacing then they will work fine!

And the bolt pattern is the same for both, so that is not a problem.

They have 5 inch backspace think they'll go?

I think the factory backspacing is 4-1/2", so 5" will probably work but I am not 100% sure of that.


It would be best if you could trial fit one on the front of your truck just to be sure, watch the clearance between the edge of the rim and the tie rod end.
