Cobra R

I was originally looking at getting some Lightning rims. But I found out that you would need wheel adapters for the rims becuase the stock bolt pattern for the ranger will not fit the F-150. I've heard they will kick the tires out about 3-4inches outside my wheelwell. Plus the tires are about 150 or more for the 18". But now I am looking at getting some Cobra R rimes (17") I think they are either 17x9 or 17x10. I think the tire size is about 245 or 275 for the rims. Could you tell me what tire size they are, and how will they fit on a ranger. Same bolt pattern? and Will i need wheel spacers. Thanks!
i currenty have 15" rims with 245/75/15. 4X4

The post above me doesn't count towards your truck......completely different front suspension.

The issue with mustang wheels on a 98+ ranger, is the front wheel hub. You might need to run a small spacer(7/16" or so) to make the hole in the wheel clear the hub. What the issue is, is that the hole in the wheel is not quite big enough to clear the ranger hub on 2wd's....not too sure on 4x4's. For some odd reason, i remember test fitting my little brother's Cobra wheels on my 4x4.....don't remember bolting them on though.
