Icon5 Custom wheels for a 2011 Ranger

I have a 2011 Ford Ranger Sport w/Extended and four wheel drive. Have been looking for an attractive 5 spoke polished alloy wheel to replace the rather homely split spoke matted finish stock wheel. The only wheels that seem to be available either on Vancouver Island or the lower mainland of British Columbia are black or black finished wheels. Any suggestions on any customer wheel manufacturer that might make wheels to fit my Ranger.

Best bet is to just take a peek at wheel manufacturer websites and find a couple kinds that you like. Linked below are some manufacturer links:

Eagle Alloy: Eagle Alloy Wheels
Pro Comp: Pro Comp USA - Wheel Accessories, Aluminum and Steel Wheels
American Racing: American Racing
Ultra: Ultra Wheel
Cragar: Cragar Wheels
US Wheel: US Wheel Online — Welcome
Billet Specialties: Homepage | Billet Specialties, Inc.
Among many others. This are just off the top of my head.

The other option is to just scroll through the site looking at trucks and their wheels that will fit your taste.

Many tire shops here in the states are also the go-to place for custom wheels. That's another option.

Can't forget the mail-order option from a place like Summit Racing or Jegs.

Bellingham and Seattle is just a short drive over the border and there are many many places to obtain wheels from around there. Then again, I do not know how far you are from the border and I haven't a clue how customs works with that sorta thing.

It's difficult to find 5 spoke wheels for a light truck application, mostly due to the offset requirements of a truck and lack of demand for the 5 spoke design. Perhaps opening up the options to a multi-spoke design may yield better options for you. Remember, Rangers are 5x4.5/5x114.3 bolt pattern and I suggest a 16x8 or 15x8 depending on existing wheel size.

Just a couple I noticed...

Ultra Nomad (the center part is a silver color)


Ultra Rogue

What is the offset for the rims on 2011 Ranger 2wd?

I'm searching for alloy rims for my 2011 Ranger (stock) 2wd. It has a 4 cylinder engine, nothing fancy, just want lighter rims for smooth balance and better gas mileage.

The Ford dealer wants almost $500 per wheel for ford rims. Says I have to get new straps or some such thing because the sensors won't work.

Will aftermarket rims work? And how do I find the "offset" so I can order the right rim?

I'm pretty sure my stock rims are 15 X 7.
