Found a decent deal on a set of unused 2016 Ram Rebel rims. The bolt pattern and hub bore are identical. The rebel rims are 17 x 8. My 2003 currently has stock 235/75/15. I have a set of 255/40/17 tires that are new that I can use.

I have done a bit of searching and have not found any 17” 4th gen 1500 wheel vs 2003 Ram van 1500 information.

Any insight? Has anyone ever attempted this?

I have to jump on this rebel rim deal in the mornin. (Set of 4 new for $300)

My guess is that they’ll fit fine being they are 8” wide. One thing to note is that your tire size is going to be fairly small. Stock 235/75/15 diameter is 28.5” and your 255/40/17 is only around 25”.

I think they will work. Looks like the backspacing is close to what our vans are (5.21 and I think the vans are usually 5.5), and they are only an inch wider than the factory 15x7 van rims.

Let us know how it turns out! I do agree you will want a taller tire than the ones you have sitting around. But upgrading to the 17" rim is a good call as it's getting harder to find some15" rim tire sizes.

I actually passed on the deal. Mainly because of having to buy tires brought the total cost to a point of having many more options.

My van came with two new tires on the front so I will just paint the stock rims and buy matching new tires for the rear.

I was surprised to see that my van came with 245/75r16 stock rather than 235/75r15.

After I get all the minor mechanical issues sorted out along with a freshening up the interior...I will revisit getting aftermarket rims.
