Go 16s. It'll look right on a Ranger. Anything 17" and larger with offroad tires on a Ranger looks goofy.

They look more proportional on the vehicles you pictured because they're larger vehicles to begin with.

well i got the rims on craigslist for 200 and the tires for 100 so i like them especially for only investing 300 bucks total lol. if you want to go the lift route, check out craigslist for cheap used stuff and you might find something there u like better. im thinkin i need to crank my tortion bars so it looks better

The wheels alone would cost me 350, then tires. Then i probably wouldn't be happy with it.

I think 03edge's 17s look pretty mean, however I just like the small rim big tire look when it comes to offroad wheels. I don't like big rims on trucks unless they're street driven or lowered.

use the [IMG] tag to and .jpg format

Insert the link of the photo from a hosting site like Photobucket.

So you'll have [IMG]www.photobucket.com/mypicture.jpg[/IMG] and your pic will show up.

Right click the image, find the "location" in firefox, or the "address" in internet explorer, copy that and put it into the img tags.

Isreal if you register on photobucket upload some pictures then when you post them on here just put the mouse over the picture a couple options will come up like direct link, html. the one you want is the image code copy that then paste it on the post. then it should bring it up fullsize. hope this helps

Stay with 16's unless you got money to burn everytime you buy tires. But you don't wheel so maybe they will last longer, whats the wear on grapplers, I thought they were soft compound.
