they are street tires.

you might not get to ya or nay it...I might do it before i ever bring it home. Depends on how much space/gap is and just the overall look of it is. Im not beyond just going back to the way it is now with 32's and downgrade from 15x10 to 15x9

hey how about BFG G-force tires.. they make a 295/45ZR22 which is a 32.5x11.6x22 tire.. that would look good.. pricer tires but worth it IMO...

also there is the Toyo proxis which is far nicer then Hancock tires which they have a

285/45R22 which is 32.2x11.2x22

Get some pictures of them mounted real quick if you decide not to go with them. I look forward to seeing the new look on your truck. The wheels in and of themselves don't do anything for me, but I think they'll look aiiight on your truck.

Its different....I like different, veering off the stereotypical 4x4, 15x8 or 15x10 American Racing or M/T rims with 31, 33, or 35'' All Terrains.


I think, i know it will look good....Cant wait to see it

Its not everyday you see a Ranger on 22s. I did see one here on 20s though. They were ugly... but the truck actually looked good.
This outcome will be interesting thats for sure.

I like the style of the rims, but personally I would like to see a ranger with a 17-18" wheel and what would be equal to a 33" tire. I think a little less rim and a little more meat would look really good. Get pics tho if you can.....

I like the style your going with. It's your truck, your money, do what you want with it.


For a little added info. Upping rim size, while keeping overall stock tire diameter is called "Plus sizing", not "ghetto gangsta detroiting it up". That term is held in regards to the homeboys who put 28" rims with rubber band tires on an lifted 86 rustatic Chevy Caprice.

dont worry dude people talked alot of **** when i was talking about mounting 34" tires on my 20"s and Most people like them and complement me all the time how nice my combo are...mostly the only negative i get about em is that i should have mountede the black wall facing out instead of the white but ohh well i would have to see em on the truck but honestly i love the wheels man

we will see what happens, the guy said we can put more meat if i didnt like those. i dont want it to look like a tonka truck. I can still use 4wd in incliment weather i just dont plan to be in the mud. If need be i can lower t bar. I personally think it will look freakin awesome Then again I am a "city" kid that likes rims and stuff. Im a little scared though, there is a ranger rolling around here black with dual hood scoops with 20 or 22 in 110 spoke chromies and it looks retarded. I think mine will look better but im partial to it. If i dont like the looks i think some 20's....i will take my camera with to snap a pic if i choose to take them off....

hey man i Love thoes rims. i am holding my $$ for a set of 20" at least but instead of the street tires i want to fit some M/T's on it. there are a lot of f350's around me with 24" rims and M/T's on and they look AWESOME!!!

I think they will look awesome on your truck!!! everyone has the micky rims but personaly i like to stand out! if anything change the tires but the rims look HOT!!! or u can give the rims to me :)!!!

Awesome, welcome to the group man, 22's look good, I've been riding them for about two years and I get compliments all the time. It's good to be different
