I'm not a fan of more wheel than tire. Myself when I replace the wheels on my truck it will be 16,17 or 18.

Agreed...I've always went with the smallest rim size on a 4x4. It's cheaper, rides better, and it makes the tires look bigger. 16" rims and 33's would look deadly on a ranger.Just my opinion.

18's for a fullsize truck and 16's for midsize truck for 33's. 17's can go either way too.

I like my 15's due to the price of tires. But I eventually want some 33's on 17's when I lift it, tires are a little more but it looks bada$$
