What size are the rims? I can't tell from your post.

Are they 20" diameter, 10" width? What does the 8 have to do with it?

What's the bolt pattern?

Unless your rims have enough offset, they will rub. If they are offset too much or you put spacers behind them, then they will destroy your ball joints. Can you take a picture of them and/or measure your offset?

no they will rub and ride like a bulldozer with a broken suspension but hey if you think it looks cool, just remember to keep the stock wheels so when you sell the van you may get a buyer. I see vehicles on craigslist every day with huge rims and rubber band tires and they never sell simply cause only 2 percent of the worlds population likes the cartoon car look.

Welcome Colin,
Sorry, with the info you provide it isn't likely anyone can say for certain. You need to know the backspacing to begin with and even then if they did fit the best you could do would be the rubber band tire, awful ride. You'll find these vans ride and handle better with an SUV tire, big rubber and higher load rating. You can run them at the low end of the pressure ratings for a good ride and better handling if the van is not loaded heavy, if you need to tow or haul loads add air and they will be good.

Search through a member's threads here named "meetthespeakers". He lowered his vans and used 18 or 19" rims I don't recall but you will find good info.

BTW, stock rim on your van is 16" six lug, I don't know the bolt pattern size or the backspacing for the 3rd gen van.

Stock rims on an '03 are 16 inch... if you have 17's they are not original...

Simple answer is that you can make anything fit with enough work, but they surely won't fit on a stock van.

Not only will the wheels not fit, we haven't even heard a thing about the tires that will mount on the wheels. "Because they're a good deal" doesn't seem like a very good reason to buy a set of wheels. I would rather figure out exactly what look/size/style I want first - THEN - figure out what mods I'd have to make to get them to fit - THEN - finally search for the best deal.

New car sales violate that concept all the time.

SALESMAN:
"I've got a great deal for you on this pink AMC Pacer"

CONSUMER:
"But it's ugly as hell, won't carry the stuff I want to carry and I feel cramped when I sit in the driver's seat"

SALESMAN:
"Yes, BUT look at the great deal I can get you. $400/month for the next nine lifetimes"

CONSUMER:
"I'll take it"
