Moved to Wheels and Tires section.

Now, could you provide some information? What doesn't fit? What size wheels did you get? What offset? Got pics of the problem?

He's looked up Whipper's profile so he must have stopped back in at some point.

Edit: And right now he's viewing this section of the site.

They only had issues on the front? If it's a hub-centric/lug-centric issue, the problem should exist at all 4 corners.

Have you tried installing them yourself to see the problem first hand? Can you take some photos of the back side of the wheels with a tape measure across the center opening to show the diameter?

17" rims should clear the brake calipers.

Now how about the center bore measurement? That's the one that's impacted by the hub-centric thing. You need to compare this:


To this:


Note that those photos are not specific to our trucks and are just random images I found on Google for illustration purposes.

I am a student in Machining. Perhaps if you provided a close-up picture of the center bore (hole) in the middle of the wheel, I could tell you if it could be bored out to fit or not
