Keep it or New Look?

Ok lemme state this..my 2004 Black Ranger isnt gunna touch any mud anymore, no mud puddles, no sand, no rocks, no nothin..other then pavement and maybe a dirt road..nothin else..

so im startin to plan..

why get mud tires with no mud, alright why get all terrain for one terrian pavement..

so ive been talkin and thinkin talkin and thinkin..of runnin a wicked big rim like 22s or 24s..i know there alot of money but its somethin to work for i guess...but i dunno if i wanna do that..theres parts of me that just want the big 33s for looks then there parts of me that wants a show truck and have 22s...so i guess lets vote..

either way my truck is gunna be bling bling clean..

-bling bling hellas, 8' whip 33s on 15s
-Bling bling 22s chrome and low pros..

DISCUSS..

I dont want to offroad my truck anymore that is why I am getting an "offroad toy" but I am still going to keep the look. It will see mud from time to time.

I hate big wheels on a 4x4. It just looks out of place. The bling bling wheels need to bu tucked up in the fenders to look right.

Why no more wheeling?

u could always go with an 18" wheel with some 33s and get the best of both worlds i dont know how easy it would be to find tired for that but i think that it would look the best

22s are too large for a ranger, go with 18s, they are cheaper, tires are cheaper, you dont sacrifice ride quality, etc. i like the clean sporty look with decent wheels, nothing crazy or too bling

Mr. Shaffer said it right. you'll keep the clean look, and just go with some road tires, not A/T, not M/T.. just normal truck tires.

i really like how your truck looks now, so i voted keep it the same. but maybe you should get some aggressive looking radials.

If you really want rims, i think 20s or 22s would both look awsome still. what style rims? How many spokes?

So why don't you go mudding any more ? I can say if I was not going mudding anymore I would get rid of my mud tires but I would not go to some 22 or 24's and some low profile tires(but thats just me, if thats your thing go for it). I think I would get some at's though and leave the truck how it is. Hell I am thinking about getting some AT's for cruzin and putting the mudders on when i go mudding.
