What does the size of a wheel have to do with whether you call it a wheel or rim ?

Well.......................I'm very sad .....I didn't get to look at it yesterday so I was heading over there today ...well I got there today and he said he sold it about 2 Hours ago to some Mexicans........So I ask him all about it....It was a 5-speed Manual 2.3L engine!!! my cousin was way off....He said he had Flowmaster 40 series on it( so I'd heard it before and I thought it was a V6) he had an soundsystem w/ two 12s!!! The rims were 17 inch American racing rims.....That thing would accelorate too b/c I had raced with him a while back.....So I'm going back next week and I'm gonna get a Flowmaster 40 series for $254 I'm gonna have them out the back w/ duals or double on one side before the rear tire....And he said If I got aftermarket rims that he would buy my old ones.....

well theres a lot of rangers in the world and hopefully ull find a 4.0L ext cab for a good price soon.

But $254 for a flowmaster 40 SI/DO!!!?? I hope that comes with mandrel bent pipes and both tips and a hundred dollar bill!...seems a little steap, might wanna shop around for prices if you havent already.

Bleh...a 4.0L and a 4-banger are WAAAYYY different lol! You aren't missing anything.

Flowmaster - $50 - Easy to do
System - $250 - Easy to do
Rims - A lot - Easy, but expensive...probably the only thing I'd go "DAMNIT, I WANTED THAT" about...

And I hope that $254 for the Flowmaster is for the muffler, pipes, and install...you can get the muffler off eBay for like $50...

Well if you want to be really technical, rims would be what alot of race cars run. Only the outer portion of the "wheel" stays with the tire. You bolt that to a large hub.
