Don't forget that the spacers will provide a larger range of motion to your tires when turning, so depending on how much clearance you currently have, you may rub a bit when the wheel is completely turned.

So I didn't have to start a new thread, i'll just put this here. Will these fit on the BACK of my truck? I'll be getting some plain 15" wheels for them, I just wanna make sure they will fit. Before anyone asks again, I have a 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 SLT with no lift or leveling kit.

mudding tires, 35 inch krawlers

Or these?

I run 20mm spacers on one of my 240SXs to widen the stance a bit.
They're hub-centric, so I haven't had any problems with vibrations at speed.

3 years after installing them, I did have a tire shop (Sears) break a bunch of studs once, then refuse to work any further on the car. I was out of town and desperately needed new rubber to get back home, but thankfully I found a Pep Boys that was willing to remove the spacers for me. Once I got back to my garage I repaired the spacers by replacing the crappy Chinese studs they came with and pounding in decent-quality ones from Autozone. That was 2 years ago, and no problems since.

The 15" wheels probably will not fit over your rotors since you already have a larger 17" wheel stock.

I would suggest checking out a Ram forum, they should have plenty of expertise on the subject.
