Do not do this, I can't imagine your stockers are that ugly that you'd consider this an upgrade

I'm a college student too, after books and beer, there's not much left for nice wheels.

But be patient, you might come across some nice wheels at a great price

They're crappy tires but for $200 it's not bad. He could resell the wheels and make probably about $100 or so back.

Well unfortunately I can't really afford the good tires. Even if I wanted to, the money isn't there

Those are the tires that Rangers come stock with. They're not the best tire but they're decent. The only thing I didn't like about them is they don't do so well in rain. Other than that they're decent.

Rims = NO

Tires = if you need them.

See if he'll sell you just the tires.

I have 30K on my stock RT/S's and they are wearing like steal. I will easily get another 10K+ miles out of them.
I don't have any rain or snow issues with them. I also take it easier in the rain and snow.

Good luck on whatever you do.

I would say no. Why not just get tires if you need them? I bought a set of almost new 31's for $200 on craigslist.
