Will these wheels work?

Yo, looking to get new wheels for my 2000 2wd Ranger. I was thinking either 1 of these 2. I was told that the gunmetal wheels couldn't fit on a 2wd Ranger because the 2wd Ranger has a different hub assembly than the 4wd Ranger the wheels originally come with. Is this true and how about the mazda wheels? Both are 15x7.

You could always use a spacer if you have fitment issues... those wheels both sit pretty tucked in.

Right now I just have regular steelis. So either of these wheels that I get wouldn't fit properly by themselves? I know the mazda wheels are Ford wheels without the bulky Ford logo center cab, I not to good on specs, but from what I understand, the steelis and the mazda wheels are both 15x7. What am I missing? I just want to make sure I do this right.

anything that is 5x4.5 (which is the same as 5x114.3) should work. Both of those wheels you posted pictures of are that bolt pattern so either one should fit.
Im almost positive the only hub issue you'd have is if your truck was a 2000 4x4 because the Pulse Vacuum Hub wouldn't clear the center bore on the wheels pictured but I could be wrong.
