Personally, I'd dig 17's the best on a Ranger, but I could find any tires in the sizes I wanted for 17s.

Hence why I went 18.

Mileage shouldn't be much different. With low pros the 18s are not much change from stock in total diameter. Those wheels are super light too, so that's good.

Yeah it really changes the truck. I wish it was like the ranger pattern,would make life easier.

Today I'm going to mod the headlights and then get them mounted and wired up. I would like to rock the tahoe rims for a while especially since snow may fly anytime soon,but the dame tires have dry rot. So id rather by tires for the titan rims if I'm going to buy any. Maybe check CL for some 16" rubber.

ok well I started to work on it today and the cold won. I basically had them mounted up, but one of the mounts to the light broke from being too cold and messing with too much I guess. I still have to wire them but I will do that this coming week cause it suppose to warm up a bit. I hate wiring in the cold,never works well. Also I still think I'm going to crack open the corners and paint the inside black so they might blend in better. so instead up such a light background behind the clear it will be black.

crappy phone pics:camera died on me

pretty much how they will be,just some slight tweaking to get them as straight as possible.

Its suppose to snow or mix rain snow all next week, I'm pissed. I got this damn truck too late in the season lol,or weather is startn too early idk.
