The only problem is on '98 (or was that '97?) and newer 1500's. The brake calipers were made bigger, so some 15" wheels won't fit. Backspacing has a lot to do with this too. When I was looking for wheels for my '99 1500, every tire shop in town told me the same thing, "15" wheels won't fit '98 and newer."
Well, I borrowed a 15" AE 589 from a bubby and bolted it on. It clears the caliper by well over 1/2" (thats a lot more than needed). So I'm running AE 15x8 589's (3 5/8" back-spacing) on my '99 1500. I also have a buddy with a '01 1500 running some free 15" aluminum someone gave him, and they clear the caliper by a lot as well.
