ugly. lol. Not my cup of tea because they're only 7" wide and are sucked way in with a 4.5" backspace. They do look good though...classic looks. BUT, had they been 8" and had a 4" backspace, my opinion on them would be ALOT different. Luckily, the aftermarket...hell the manufacturer Alcoa has options for me.

"gay wheels"? Seriously? Are you still in junior high? My 14 y/o son doesn't even talk like that.
This is a hate free zone, so keep the hate to yourself.
lol "hate free zone"

I simply stated (in my own words) that I think they're pretty ugly. If you felt hurt then that's your problem, you girl.

Give your son two years and he will talk like that, I promise ya. I'm a lot closer to his age than you are.
First off ... I'm not a girl and secondly ... My son will never talk like that because he's smart enough to recognise that using the word gay as a derogatory term is considered homophobic. He realises that using the word gay to insult something or someone implies that you think there is something wrong with being homosexual. This makes you look hateful, and most people are put off by prejudiced people. Sometimes people say things to each other that could be offensive, as a form of irony - but it's not often that you can get away with using the word gay or any other potentially derogatory term in a way that appears to be insulting in front of the general public or someone you have only just met. Avoiding using gay as a synonym for something bad or stupid or wrong is the best policy.
If you can't conduct yourself in a proffessional manor you don't need to be in this Forum.

Those rims are nothing but 94+ Mazda 4x4 wheels. Ford is skimping on the 2010 Rangers, prime example. They probably had a bunch in storage. I had them originally on the Mazda, I'm on my 2nd set.

How do you figure they're skimping? These are chrome alloy wheels ... and they're not cheap to manufacture. Especially that design.

Doesn't look chrome at all. Notice how much the second set shines.

Ugly mazda wheels

chrome hoss XD



Anyways, the fact they're using a design that apparently members were buying in the 90s shows that maybe they're burning through old inventory since the rangers are going out of production in a year.

This is true.... they're machined aluminum and I think they may even be clearcoated. In fact, you can't get chrome or polished wheels on a Ranger or Maz anymore. The only brilliant shiny wheel now is actually a snap-on wheel cover. lol.

And yeah...Ford didn't wanna create a new wheel or spend the dough for developing a new wheel for the 2010's since Ranger's been 3 foot in the grave for the better part of a decade, so they whipped up a wheel that's been around on another brand for 10 years and called it new for 2010 Ranger(because supposedly nobody outside the ranger world knows a Mazda IS a Ranger).


Anybody else getting a kick out of this(and other) threads??? lol.

mine are similar to 3 but they have a flat surface near the outter edge and are alot better looking (imo) and not seen as much, same as 4. they're out there but not in the numbers like 1 or 3.

i agree with the overstock comments. especially when ford has a trim level called FEL. i've posted in another thread that i think it means Find Everyting Left.

I wish Ford would have changed them up some more over the years. they had alotta time to come out with some killer wheels and then we would have better stock choices. IMO the wheel makes the vehicle.

You can take pretty much ANY vehicle and spice it up with a nice set of wheels. IF the wheels look very good and they SUIT the vehicle, then WOW. it really pops and grabs alot of attention.

Which Explorer / Sport Trac wheels were available that we could use.... anyone have a cool handy chart of pics like the first one posted in the thread?

I like them for that reason :) Good people pass on trucks with bad wheels. I come by buy it and take off bad wheels and then we have good truck with good wheels :)

Why should I have to swap something out when I am buying a brand new truck? If I am spending 25k on a truck, why do I need to go out and spend more just to make me like the truck?

oh brand new... my bad. I worked at the Ford Dealership for 4 years. When customers wanted different wheels off of a different truck we would swap em. Anything for a sale. AND on a few cars one summer we NEEDED to sell 2 more vehicles to meed a ford bonus quota. u shoulda seen those deals lol below cost. Guess the bonus was bigger than losses lol.

Uhh, obviously you like them so they're not bad wheels to you. There's a million rangers, that 25K can buy ANY ranger combination you want.
