How is changing the rim going to make the tire better?

I would say 17's.

They are not smaller than 16s for sure. Im pretty sure thats what they can be though. The off road comes with 17s but Im 95% sure you can fit 16s

I've got a 2003 and 16's will be pushing it due to the bake size---stock truck size is 17"

Steel 16" will probably fit fine, but aluminum could be hit or miss.

I know the 2500 and 3500 require 17" or larger for the 3rd Gen Dodge trucks to fit over the calipers. Not sure on the 1500's though.

I would just pave your driveway...that would be cheaper than buying new rims and tires:tonka:

17" minimal unless you want to grind some brake calipers, even some aftermarket 17's don't work.
