Sweet! Looks good!
Usually you see the BFG's mounted white lettering out.
When you look for wheels, keep in mind, you'll probably rub quite a bit if you go with a wider than stock well, or with more/less backspacing. Basically, to run those on a stock ranger, you need to stick with factory spec wheels. I'd recommend looking for used stock 15's (alcoa's or something maybe?).

Thanks. Its actually the pic that makes it looked stuffed, that and all the trim is black. I have a crappy camera but there is plenty of room back there.
And Im searching for the DSG alcoas, I passed on a set for 200 like a year ago and now Im kickin myself for it.

That looks great. I love tall and skinny tires. That is the size I want to run on my truck in the future. Do you have any rubbing? It looks like there is plenty of room.

No rubbing at all. I just flexed it on a stump here on the ranch and there is still plenty of room. Give me a few minutes and Ill get pics up.

Its bone stock. I only cranked the t-bars, when I bought it 6 months ago, an inch to level the front out. I have a 30 min commute to work and then back. It rides so great. I did loose a touch of get up and go but not enough to really care
