AHHHHHH! please get atleast a 15x8 since you are upgrading.....that way if you EVER want to run a 12.50 wide tire you can without having to buy new wheels! do yourself a favor and get 15x8's with a 3.73 (3.73 is what they will be with an Eagle wheel) backspacing......you wont regret getting the extra inch wide wheel, but you will regret not getting it in the future!

Well, I am going to go no bigger than a 32x11.50x15 in the future and probably no bigger than a 31x10.50x15. Daily driver and all...

I feel really stupid about this whole wheel thing. I am lost with these Rangers. Now if it was a Mustang, then I could tell you what would fit any combo, but with this, I thought I would defer to you guys. I know that the 8" rim would be better, but I wanted the tires to stick out less. Just my silly preference.

So, do you think those might clear the brakes? I sure as hell hope so. Oh well, if they don't, then I am sure I can recoup most of my money by selling them locally.

i will guarantee you that a 15" wheel will clear any brakes ever put on Rangers from the factory.....4x4 or 4x2 models.........

if you plan on running a 11.50 tire and you are getting aftermarket wheels get a 15x8 wheel....dont get a 15x7 and waste your time....

exactly...either way you go just get a 15x8...it will be better if you ever decide to go to a 31 1150 or so on...although if you went to a 33 1250 i would reconmend switching to a 10 inch wide rim as soon as posible
