    Do 17" rims fit on the 5th gens? I still have my winter tires from my 16 that were on 17" wheels and hoping i can just get new wheels to fit the 19.

    You need 18" minimum. I was hoping the same thing with my winters from my '16 ram, but 17" wheels won't clear the brakes.

    So sold my 17" wheel / tire setup and went with 18" steelies with 275/65/18 tires

    yep welcome to the club. If you watch the sales, I just got 4 tires from Canadian tire for just over 700.so after selling my old tires, its not too bad.

    Adapters from 6 to 5 lug would solve both problems if you’re comfortable doing so.

    Adaptors or not the 17” wheel still won’t clear the calipers.

    Anyone have experience with fitting 2019 stock 18" Rebel wheels and tires on a 2019 Limited originally equipped with 22s? I've done some searches, but I can't find anything conclusive. Some say there will be caliper clearance issues.

    “Adaptors or not the 17” wheel still won’t clear the calipers.“

    Yeah they’ll need persuasion with the OEM brake setup.

    Factory rebel wheels you should be fine. Aftermarket 18’s are touch and go from what I’ve read.
