if they are ment for a mustang......then you will need a 7/16" spacers and longer studs on the front. That's what my little brother had to do to his '01 XL w/ the DJM 4/5 and 17" Cobras. The "hub" on the stangs are alot smaller than the "hub" of the rangers.....so the hub hole on the stang wheels are too small for the ranger hub. I'm not too familiar with the wheels you are going with, im just giving you a heads up.

I think his question is will the tires rub?

Keep the diameter of the tire under 26 inches in the front and you wont rub at all any more bigger than a 26 inch diameter tire youll be rubbing on turns and bumps.

Im running 235/45/17 on my truck and dont rub at all.

Other than that you should be fine.
