If you're talking about the 20" factory 5 spokes w/ the 5 lug/5.5" bolt pattern off of a Ram 1500, then the answer is YES - you can mount them successfully on a '98 1500. Be aware that there is a very small hub diamater difference between the two vehicles though. The newer Rams have a slightly smaller wheel hub diameter than the '98. However, they will fit. First, you need to make sure that the wheel is pressed onto the hub with as much force as possible to seat it as best you can. Then, be certain to tighten the lug nuts in a cross diagonal order as tight as you can. And, most importantly, don't forget to torque-down your lug nuts after driving 50 miles or so, because as the wheels fully seat on the hubs, they will naturally loosen some of the nuts (ie. I had 3 come off completely before I checked mine). But since I re-tightened them, I have had no problems since - I have put about 5,000 miles on my truck with the new rims. By the way, they look great on a '98. GOOD LUCK!!! The 8 lugs swap as well and the center caps are interchangable. 17" alloys with old center caps are sharp on a 2nd generation 2500. Make sure the larger tires don't rub the brake lines when you turn!
