I have a 2004 Ford Ranger XLT 4.0 4x2, and I am wondering if a set of 2013 Mustang GT California Special wheels will fit on my Ranger without modification.

The specs on the Mustang wheels are P245/45 ZR 19.

The specs on my stock Ranger wheels are 225/70 R 15.

Will the Mustang wheels fit on my Ranger without modification?

Thank you,


-Adam

This thread doesn't address offset/backspacing at all...I'm not confident to buy a new set without a little reassurance.

My needs are simple - 31x10.5-15's on an '04 XLT FX4 Off Road (not Level II). For reference, factory 15x8 wheels for Level II are supposed to have +19mm offset.

Online I can find 0mm, 6mm, -19mm offet in 15x8. I have cranked the torsion bar. Which is the safest offset to use?

Thx

Ron

Most guys roll with a 3.75" backspacing to push the larger wheels outboard some & to gain a little clearance in the inside.

So with that in mind - you will want the -19mm offset version.

A 15x8 wheel with -19mm offset has a backspacing of 3.75".

Great info, thanks. Only concern is rubbing at full lock, but I'll go with the recommendation.

I have read this a few times and I know it says on the 2002 ranger 2wd with 33x12.5 I will need to trim with the lift, but what size lift is that based on?

I have a 2002 2wd with a 4" spindle lift and just ordered 33x12.5r15 on a 15x10 wheel. Should I be expecting to trim the valance only, more or less?

What did you do for the back? What you have to trim will vary based on your rim back spacing

You shouldn't have much issue with rubbing then. Maybe the valence

Just a little trimming. On a side not, why does everyone get so scared if they have to trim a little bit? Not you impact, just seems like people don't want to even think about the idea of trimming

I have no idea, I just got new 15x10 wheels and had new 33x12.50 put on them yesterday. Only took me about 10 minutes to trim both sides and I only cut out about 2 inches from the bottom at an angle. I'll have pics up today hopefully

Well no updates in here in 2.5 years...

I have a 2011 Sport 4x4. From what I've read the 2010-2011 models have larger rear discs, which could pose an issue for 15" wheels. Does anyone have any info on that?

Also, I've read that the suspension sits a little lower that previous 4x4 models with smaller blocks in the rear and less torsion bar adjustment in the front. With that being said, has anyone with a 2010-2011 thrown some larger tires on theirs with no lift? If so, how big?

I've had two 2002 FX4s. Both of which I threw some 33x12.50 15s on, with only a t-bar crank. Even under flex I only had slight rubbing up front, which a little trim fixed easily.

My current 2011 only has 3.73s so I think I'll stick to 32x11.50s...but just by looking at the truck, it looks iffy.

After reading multiple threads and this thread which was super helpful.

I just switched to 31x10.5r15 yesterday from stock 235x75r15. I went with the Falken Wildpeak A/T3W and so far they ride really good on the highway and streets without much noise. I won't get any off roading on them for a couple weeks. Doing the Mojave road in November so that should give these a good test.


Thanks again for creating this message thread and the tables. They helped a lot.

Does anyone have a photo of 15x10 on a 2wd 2000 Ranger? I just installed a 4 inch lift(spindles, leaf hangers) and want to see what they would look like. Thanks for any help

I have run both 31x10.5r15s and 32x11.5r15's on 15x8 wheels with 3.75" back spacing and I haven't had any rubbing issues.
