    Yes they will fit and they will not change the height at all. They have thinner sidewalls on the tires and are approximately the same overall diameter. If you were not aware the tire pressure monitor sensors (TPMS) that come on 2007+ vehicles will not work with the older model vehicles. So unless you want a warning light constantly on, you might think about putting the correct sensors in before mounting them.

    You can put bigger tires on that would provide a small lift.

    Could I take the sensors out of the 02 rims that I have now and put them in the 09 to get rid of that problem? Or should I just buy new ones?

    The batteries in the TPMS only last for a certain amount of years, I just replaced all of mine because I had a bad one. I got all brand new AC Delco sensors on Amazon or RickAuto for if I recall $35.00 a piece. Your already going to have the wheels off, might as well have brand new sensors on your new wheels....

    The TPMS batteries generally last 7 to 10 years, so if they are the original sensors I would concur with the previous poster to replace them. If, however, the TPMS sensors are not original, then they could very well still be within their useful life. I normally reuse them personally if there was no problem with them previously. They do make rebuild kits for the sensors, but these only address the seal and sensor condition, not the battery.

    Are you sure you even have a TPMS system in your 2002? My 2003 does not have such a system, I am not sure if it was a factory option or not.

    If the truck has the tpms then yes it will

    If the truck doesn't have the tpms then no
