Which do you think?

Looking for rims for the ranger. I'm really stuck on a few of them. Keep in mind I only do a bit of offroading and plan to put 33's on it. I really like the price of the 15's but there is a small chance I can get the bigger ones for free through my sponsor.

15x8 Cragar 398 - 80$


15x8 Cragar 397 - 80$


17x8.5 American Racing ATX Thug - 190$


18x9 KMC XD Rockstars - might get through sponsor - 175$US


18x9 KMC XD Hoss - might get through sponsor - 175$US


18x9 KMC XD Monster - might get through sponsor - 175$US


This is the truck

I like the cragar 398's. Also I'm pretty sure that rockstars don't come in a 5x4.5 bolt pattern.

VMP and 5-Star tuned no more

Buy a hybrid my truck needs your gas

Oh and does anyone know where i can get a guard to hide all those wires in the front wheel well, it has one on the passenger side but not drivers... I find it so ugly like that, of course the tires would hide it though

I have been getting alot of feedback from friends, family and forums that getting bigger rims would look better. But it all depends on whether I get the sponsorship through. If not I might either get all 4 15's, or get 1 18" at a time lol

If you are refering to the mudguard between the back of your drivers front wheel and the engine, you can either make one out of some rubber or go to the dealer and buy a passenger side one (with clips) and just flip it to use it on the driver's side.

Here is a thread about it

Depending on the offset, some 15's don't fit unless you grind the calipers.

Well the Cragars are a no-go, 6 week back order, might get 15x10" Pro Comps for around 130$ea. I'll get one and see if it fits, if not, I'll return it and try a different brand. Unless I can get the larger rims from my sponsor I'll be getting 15's.

Also selling my side steps... anybody want them?
