Default 2002-2003 dodge ram owners

i bought a 2002 dodge ram 1500 4x4 with the 17.5 sport rims was wondering if any one knows of an after market wheel company that sells a replica of the 20" style chrome wheel that will fit on my truck .i kick my self for not buying them when i ordered the truck new!!

The 4x4's are not available with the 20" wheels. When you order the 20's on a 4x2 they use a different rear end ratio (3.92) to make up for the height. I think 4x4's are also a 6 lug where the 20's are 5. So I dont think your truck would be able to have the stock rims. Im sure an aftermarket company makes something in a 6 lug 20". Hell I saw a truck this week with 24" wheels.

I just bought a 2003 Ram 1500 Quad Cab 4x2 5.7 Hemi Magnum 20" Wheels.

You sure about that Ron? The dealer at Salsbury told me you could get the 4x4 with 20's. He might not have known what he was talking about though.

They told me no in December when we bought ours. Thats the main reason I didnt buy the 4x4. Because Deb liked the truck better with the 20's.

Just looked in the 2003 Dodge Truck brochure and it looks like the 1500 4x4's are a 5 lug truck. So maybe you can.

When the rebodied Ram came out with 20" wheels there was a lot a discussion on th evarious Dodge forums regarding max. tow weight.
The 20" wheeled trucks had a lower gross due to the 20" tire load ratings.
