Depends what size brake rotors you have, not sure what options for rotor size were available on that year, I would start by talking to the Dodge dealer service department to pull a VIN report and see what size rotors your vehicle originally came with.

No. Absolutely not. You have to shave the calipers for them to fit. I'm experiencing the same issue right now I bought 16s for a good price thinking they would fit.
