questions on dc-1

I have a black 2004 ranger edge flareside 2wd. from doing a little research i found that the stock tires are 245/70/16 right? well my truck has 235/70/16 and the tires look incredibly puny on it. after seeing silver's truck with the black dick cepek dc-1s i fell in love. i was just going to get the 265/70/16 general grabbers at2 and stick with the stocker wheels but now im really considering the dc-1s. if i did get the dc-1's i would get the black 15x8 with the 31/10.5 grabbers. would this work? im thinking it will with maybe a turn of the t-bar.also everyone that has the dc-1s in black post up pics please. one last question how would the black rims look on my black truck? too much black? ps:can anyone photoshop it?

where did you guys get them? i saw one place online that had them for 94 each but now i cant find them. also i wont be lifting or anything do you think the fit would be ok with just a few cranks to the torsion bars?

I think they would look good but go with a 32" tire vs the 31.... a 31 will still look too small..

Edit: yep no lifting required. Just crank those tbars a bit and your set

31s wont look tooo bad, but if you compair them to a set of 32s on a Ranger you are going to have the same statement as before

Definately do it if you can afford it. The photoshopped picture looks great on your truck.
