Default Will Wrangler 265/70R/17's fit an 03' Ram 1500?

My tires are shot and I need new ones, well relatively new. I have a guy who wants to sell me his 17's off of his wrangler, but they are a 5x5 lug pattern and mine is a 5x5.5 pattern. Would I be able to use a spacer, or would I need an adapter to make the wheels fit? Otherwise I could just swap out the OEM ram rims and replace the wrangler rims. Let me know what you think.
Thanks,
Jake

Swap the tires to the proper rims, don't use adapters.

Yep. Adapters are a bad idea.
