Another will they fit question...

I didnt want to thread thief the forum below me but i was wondering if the take offs of my aunts 05 4x4 exploder will fit my 96 Ranger the are the 16" 5-star rims, I think 245-75-16? I know I can fit up to 31's but my question is not about the tires but the spacing on the rims since they are meant for a 4wd not a 2wd...

Your Ranger's wheel offset is +12mm and those are +44mm so the center of the rim/tire will be pulled inward roughly 1 1/4" on either side. Depending on the tire size you use, you could have rubbing on the inside of the front tires while turning. Appearancewise, the tires/wheels will look more recessed in the openings unless you use a wide tire width - but that will increase the likelihood of them rubbing.
