Question
Will rims from A 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 2x4. Fit on A 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4?

Answer
Brad,

Yes, but you need to be careful.  Pickup trucks come in a variety of payload levels and even though these both seem like "half ton" pickups, they could be quite different in GVW - which in turn affects what tire size is appropriate.

Find the vehicle tire placard on your truck and take steps accordingly.

Expertise

I have over 30 years experience in the design, manufacturing, and testing of tires. I have served as the technical advisor to the "800" number. I have authored or co-authored many publications - usually without credit. I can answer almost any technical question, but please don`t ask me to compare brands. I probably have prejudices because of my work experience.
