2008 XLT Offroad Rims/Tires

Hey there. I'm rocking a stock 2008 Ranger with some real crap stock rims, and was looking to get some matte black steel rims and new tires for some trail riding. It's a 2wd, and I live in Calgary, so I'd prefer tires that can handle a bit of snow (I will hopefully put my snow tires on this year, maybe on the crappy stock rims)

ANYWAYS I just need some advice. Hoping to keep this under 1600 bucks all said and done. Would prefer to have 5 rims and 5 tires (Gonna need a spare just in case). Would prefer to have this set up on stock suspension, and would prefer an 8 inch wide rim. 15-18 inch diameter is fine. Let me know some of your suggestions and ideas, I'll get to posting pics of my truck in the near future.

Not steel, but they fit your budget. otherwise if you want black steel wheels they all pretty much look the same and are $30-50 each.

as for tires, im sure someone will suggest duratracs since they are pretty agressive and good in snow.
