Anybody have these Mustangs on their Ranger?


Will these require spacers and will the center cap fit without modifications?

I want to use the same tires that I have. These are 15"s. Im looking for cheap 15x7 rims, If anybody in the Dallas Fort Worth area close to Bedford have any rims for sale, tell me. They dont have to be these mustangs, anything that will fit without spacers, and not the XL rims.

I think you should get EDGE Plus wheels instead. They look better and won't require spacers.

Nobody has ranger take offs, they only have wrangler and mustang rims every place I go I can get the jeep ones all 4 installed for $200. The black ones at pepboys are 56 each then 10 for each balance and mounting..

How much diff in gas from stock to 31"s? I know trucks dont get the best, i get about 18-19 in the city with my truck.

Edit: Nevermind, I dont pay for my own gas(father does), so until I move out of the house and pay my own gas no 31"s. I still have plans for my truck after these rims to get black bedrails, fender flares, clear corners, and maybe a 1 or 2" front lift to even things out that he wont notice
