New here with an 04 Edge.

Hi everyone. I have a 2wd, 2004 Edge that i bought allmost new in 05. It is my 2nd Ranger. My 86 ran so good, when it was time to get a new truck, I wanted another.

My 04 is a street only truck so forgive the 22s. I like 'em.

Im here to learn. Really interested in the T-bar crank.

See you around - Nick

Yeah I know. I got them back when 22s were considered big. Thinking about selling them and putting the stockers back on with bigger tires. Still doing research on the 15 x 7 tire selection.

welcome Nick, when I got my 04 it had 20s with some rubber bands wrapped around them, rode like hell! could feel every crack in the road, and atraccted alot of street ****** and crack heads, Got rid of them quick! went to tire rack.com and got a set of Black Mombas with Yokahoma tires for a real good price. With what I sold the 20's for and what I paid for rims & tires I got $25 wrapped up in each one. ($100 set of four rims & tires)

I hear ya stumblefoot. I can roll over a dime and tell you what year it was. I have had the 22s for 4 and a half years. Ready for a change.
I saved the stockers and figure a 33x10.5 will work on the 15x7s. Get them mounted, crank the T-bar a bit, decide what and where to trim, THEN sell the 22s.

That or lower the rear. I think doing that you could keep those rims on. It would look pretty good.

Yeah the back would be easy to lower. Just take out the 2" blocks. Maybe get shorter XLT shocks?

The truth is I am ready for a change.

I like the rims a lot, I would say if you were to sell let me know but FL is so far. I think your plan with the 33s will be good too.
