i could do that 20s with nittos 35s...not a bad idea..id have to do some research...

thanks of the opinons...im startin to lean for the keep it the same...

but i see theres alot of why no mud...

Mud just screws a truck up...it breaks things i dont want to take my 20K dollar truck in the mud my daily Driver break something then be like uh oh dont have a ride..i got a 01 polaris sportsman and i will just take my fun that id have in my ranger in that...ill take that thing anywhere a truck will go..and when i break something in that i just load it up park it in my garage and go to work in my workin ranger and fix the atv when i get time...its just not worth it so im gunna ban it from the mud and keep it a clean truck.

Was just doin some searchin on the internet..thats what it is good for..


nitto gots the 325/50/22

thats a 34.8x12.8

with a 3" body lift i could fit those i think...they would be tucked but i think they would look good...anybody got pics of those on a mid size all ive been able to find where like full size chevys and f-series trucks....

you guys think that would look good like a 20 or 22 on a nitto?

im sitting here thinking, why did you buy a 4x4? no mud? no sand? no snow down south? im confused.

the reason you dont see rangers with those crazy sized rims is because it just dont work/look right on a ranger.

i think this is more what you want, and im pretty sure theose are 18s on both but idk for sure.
someone correct me if im wrong
the yellow truck has 35s, a body lift and spindles, and the black truck has 33s and a body lift.

the black truck here is as far as bling as id go with a ranger with 4x4.

i bought a 4x4 cuz i thought that i would take it wheelin i did for a lil bit but i learned fast that it just messes the truck up..and theres no point on riskin breakin my DD and my truck that im still makin payments on i already had to replce my MAF which was 200 bucks cuz i got mud in my airtake..not worth it..

but id have to say yes those pics above look pretty good...im gunna do some reasearch and hopefully i can come to a decision

i will never ever ever buy aftermarket rims for my truck

stock all the way....

look at my avatar...my truck never sees off road, but its got the stance, the tires, the attitude, yet i can pull up in a car show and probably take something home just because i keep it clean....

and when the road gets rough and dirty, the option is always there for 4x4 low....i'll get back home....

i also dont let my truck go mudingonly donuts in the snow and getting salty and sandy but i always clean it, it looks like a mudding truck but it not and i got stock rims and A/T's that look sporty and i alwasy get thumbs up and i now have off road lights and i really like ur truck the way it is, but i think the 18" and a BL witht he mud tires like that black truck would look awesom!!

im still gonna wheel. i dont care if it does mess it up. you have to remeber nothing stays perfect forever.

since i went playin in the snow/salt/slush my wheels have been messed up. last night i took my wheels and tires off and spent 3 hours on two wheels, polishing away. got two more to do tonight. sigh. but that is the fun in it. unfortunatly im running on my stockers now and it looks like crap. lol

Just a point for everyone who keeps saying why no more mud.

My truck with a dana44 exploder 8.8 5.13's and 38" TSL's won't touch the mud unless theres a small puddle on the trails. Mud sucks. It ****s up your truck. and it doesn't really require any skill to do.

I think you should do whatever YOU think looks best. If you think 22's would look good on your truck, then go for it!! I think it would look pretty good, myself. Certainly not to diss anyone on this site, but ranger-forums.com is the wrong forum to be asking this question. Of course they're gonna say leave it off-road, take a look around at the trucks! 95% of them are off-road oriented. Therangerstation.com would be an even worse place to ask. I know you all hate for me to say it but....RPS probably has the most even distribution of lowered/lifted guys. Actually I'd say there's quite a few more lowered guys to tell you the truth. (I know he's not gonna lower his but, lowered guys usually = BIG RIMS) They'd probably give you a different opinion. But anyway, like I said, do what you like. :)

Evan, one of elliott's friends has a ranger, bagged, lays frame with 20's in the front and 22's in the back.

Now, someone tell me how 20-22's don't "work" on a ranger that is lifted? Helluva lot easier to fit them lifted than lowerd. DO IT EVAN. BLING THAT **** OUT.

Do what you want... if it makes you happy then that's all that matters... BUT droppin' a 4x4??? Trade it in and get a 2wd so someone who WILL take their truck wheelin' can have the benifits of a 4x4. It's a nice lookin' truck as is. I say keep it. Wheel it or not is up to you (although just cuz you're offroad doesn't mean you have to go through mud), but off-road-looking trucks, even if they're totally "fake", look a lot better IMO than pavement pounding mall crawlers. I vote keep it

EDIT:
I just saw the poll after I voted.... like I said, whatever makes you happy is all that matters, but a lot of people are sayin' keep it, and yeah it's probably 'cause this is more of an off-road oriented site, but still. And it's gonna cost a lot to switch over. Save the money you would have used to switch over to maintain an off-road vehicle, even if you don't wheel it that much.
