In my personal opinion a body lift with 33s and 18s would look awesome.

Do you say that due to personal preference? Or is there a functional reason I should consider that?

Is that what you have? Your truck looks sharp, whatever it is.

for example...

BFG All Terrains 265/65R18 = 31.6" or 285/65R18 = 32.6"

I'd suggest the 285/65r18 because if you are going for an off road look, them 31s are just too damn small, imo. i'm rockin' 31s right now, and i'm disgusted when looking at my truck. It looks like a street truck.
I guess I should have use the phrase "4x4 look" instead of "off road look", when referring what appearance I wanted. All I really meant by that was that I still want good 4x4 tires on the larger rims, and not something only good for street driving. However, I don't want anything super knobby or agressive or anything, just because it will be my daily driver and I don't want to create a lot of interior road noise or discomfort.

I have 32s right now and love it, but I personally think that 33s/18s look better I just don't have the money to do that yet. In the near future I'll probably double lift it and run 35s/18s

Very sharp! I really like that proportion. I'd probably go with 31's or 32's, to avoid having to do a lift (and due to cost).

That's what I'm thinking too. I don't like all black wheels. And I think that with my dark gray bottom half, something with a black center but machined lip would look pretty sharp. I thought these have a nice blend, also incorporating a little brightness in the inner part of the wheel too. I think it makes it look a little sharper.

Some of those aren't too bad. I don't know if I'd like them as much, but for $100 less per rim, I might be able to learn to. Lol.

***EDIT: I just did an eBay search and found these for quite a bit cheaper. I emailed the seller asking if they have the correct size for a Ranger. They're selling them for $660 + $65 shipping for a total of $725 shipped for a set of 4. Before even calculating the shipping costs of the site I linked, it was already at $996 for a set of 4. These are officially the wheels I want!***

you must run 32s! if you are not planning on lifting. 31s are too small

IMHO... A ranger with 15's and 32's, 17's and 33's, or 18's and 35's looks perfect!!!

Me personally, really dig the less than bling look........17s. Lot cheaper and alot more selection in both wheels and most importantly, tires, compaired to 18s.

Really? I'm thinking I'd go with the BFG All Terrains in the 265/65R18 mentioned above. Sounds like a good size.
