Are 20's too big?

I just recently got my B3000 around Thanksgiving time. I really need to change the look of it. I've been looking into gettin some rims but I dont know whether 20's would be too big. Even if they did fit would they LOOK too big?

i thinks 20 are about as big as you can go without looking goofy, just make sure you get a matching stance to go with them. you will notice decreased braking performance though, and possibly lower gas mileage, because 20 inch wheels weigh a lot more than what youve got now, so you truck has to work a LOT harder to move, and stop them

not necessarily bob. I was working on a cadillac with 24s yesterday and they were pretty damn light for such a big wheel, barely any difference over stock wheels and tires.


get the right wheel youll be ok

I think 22"s are tight! Not really, but hey, I don't dig 20"s either.

To each their own! I think they are too big, but I just said I don't like them either.

For actual sizing purposes, for the Ford Ranger, it is more than capable of handling 20"s and looking well.

yeah youre right gil, if you can afford the forged aluminum wheels, they arent too bad, but most of the cheaper larger wheels are cast alum or steel, and those weigh a TON.

20"s will look great. Ive got a buddy with a 4cyl and 20"s and he doesnt really have any problem moving his truck along. 20"s are about as big as I would go on a ranger though. Look on cardomain or on Rangerpowersports for Rangers with 20"s, that will give you a good idea of what it will look like. Best of luck man...

For performance, 17's. I have 18's just because Saleen doesn't make a 17" wheel.

For looks though, 20's. Anything bigger is borderline tacky, and dangerous.

After I had my 18's mounted I thought to myself, "Damn! I should have bought 20's!"

I've got 18's and love them....I've seen some rangers with 20's though and they look really nice. Just make sure you have a good stance and fill up the wheel wells

Hell why stop at 22... try a 26, 28 inch combo, be the baddest ranger in the state and look like a steamroller why doing it. J/p 22" are bad, 20" are too, IMO 20"+ are your friend...
