I calculate that 255/55-17 tires would be 28.0" tall. Probably not big enough to
mess up the abs, since the '96 4wd came with 235/75-15 which is bigger yet, but
I bet they won't clear the fenders and/or the frame in front.

The bolt pattern is the same, but what is the backspacing? '96 wheels have 5"
backspacing. '97 and newer were 5.5" and just barely didn't fit.
