Hey Y'all Been kinda busy lately but need some input, I am wanting some new rims and tires on the truck, Most likely be going with tires anywhere within the 31-33in range, depending if my truck gets lifted to the height I want and if I can regear my axle for the tire size (2.3L with stock 373's right now) but My main question is regarding what style rims would look good and what size.
if I am keeping it at its current height, I want to keep my 15's or possibly go to 16's, Here is a semi-current picture of the ranger.
I currently Have 31's on 15in pacer rims that came with the truck when my dad bought it back in 2004, it does alright with the 373's but you can tell it is a dog once your on a hill or when the A/c is on. My original plan was to put the 4.10 gears I have into my 8.8 but then I got to thinking about putting 4.56's in there. I have heard people say go with that gear set, especially if you plan to go to 33's at some point, So that made me change up my thought process.
As before, My current plan was to put 4.56's to compensate for some 33's on 17 in rims but I am concerned that 17's would be goofy, and I may be stuck at my current height for a while so I may just go with the original plan on having either 15 or 16's on 31 or 32 inch tires with 4.10's in the 8.8.
So as of Now, i have no idea which direction i should go, but I know of a few rims I like so I guess I can start there and listen to some of y'alls suggestions,
My current rim choices are these few:

What would y'all think would look good on this truck, I am up for any suggestions. Thank y'all
Edit: The look i am going for is the "Stuffed" look, and The tires I am thinking on buying are the Micky Thompson STZ's
