f150 wheels on ranger

So i had a post earlier about getting an 03 supercrew over in the off-topic forum, but i've since decided to just keep the ranger...which leads me to this question...is there a reliable way using adapters to fit 17" f150 FX4 wheels on my ranger since i have a set of 285/70/17s sitting around? i really like the looks of those wheels and we have an old set laying around our warehouse...is there any way to make these wheels fit? If not i'm thinkin about 17" cragar soft 8s with the bfgs on em!

thanks

I am not 100% sure about this, but I think the adaptors are ok as long as they are installed correctly.

Please correct me if I am wrong!

if you wanted to do it correctly and spend all the money..get new axle shafts made and get new brakes and spindles and stuff upfront

but adapters will work

I have had adapters on my truck for 2 years now, no problems. I got mine from summit.
