picked up a 94 dodge ram 1500 i am wondering if 15 inch rims will fit? it has 16 inch rims on it now. or should i just sell/trade the 15inch mt's for some 16 inch rubber?

Depends on the rims, steelies fit pretty easy, some aluminum fit some wont.

Just get steelies then no worries, unless its some wierd backspacing they will fit.

If its aluminum I think it just depends on manufacturer, thickness of the wheel etc, Id guess at least centerline. Mine were 15x8 with a pretty much centerline and they just fit, a grain of dust and it would rub the brake caliper.

do you think it would be a good idea to grind the caliper a bit?

I did it on my 92 3/4 ton to fit 15's, but its really just an offroad truck, 1/2 ton calipers arnt as thick as 3/4 ton, not much you can take off.
