Hey my name is David.I purchaced a 2011 Ranger a few months ago.Ive been looking for a community like this to hopefully find some help and hope on doing things to my truck.Apparently 2011 arent that popular on the market for parts yet.I just had a front end leveling kit put on with intentions of putting 3" blocks under the back.If anyone else owns a 2011 ranger maybe we can share some helpful info.My profile name is (11rangerboy).Hit me up with some info!!!

Welcome David.
Some Body lifts and blocks will still fit the 2011 Ranger, your basically the same as a 2008 and up.

I hear alot of people have alot of problems out of 15-10 wheels also.They tell me they rub.Whats up with that? I bought Mickey Thompson Sidebiters the other day and they wouldnt even fit.My truck came factory with 15-7s and the new wheels were 15-8s with a -30 offset.They hit the top front of my calipers.

On the newer Ranger's it is best to go with 16" or bigger wheels. 15" wheels have a tendency to rub as you found out.

Will cause increased wear, but they work.

Awesome!My truck has a special suspension.It came like special edition payload two package and Im wondering if my calipers are bigger than normal.It makes no sense that my factory wheels are 15x7 and 15X8s hit against my calipers.

I have actually heard of people trimming their calipers in order for wheels to fit.

Take note: FULLSCALE is superlifted. This lets him run larger wheels/tires without rubbing.

You need to use a hosting site like photobucket or imageshack or you can create an album on your profile and use that.

https://www.ranger-forums.com/all_albums.php

You will see add album just above the list of albums.
