Hard Time Finding 18" Black Rims

So I have a 04 ranger 2wd and its also a flareside and I just want a nice clean simple 18" inch Black wheel that i really like and that only ones i like right now are the KMC XD RockStars but its more of a 4wd looking rim and everyone has them so they are sort of played out. So my question is what other rims are out there that would look good? And maybe some pics of your guys or gals trucks.

Thanks Guys

Did he finally bag it, or is that still static? lol. I haven't been over on RPS in a while.




OP, here's a pretty sweet looking one, comes in 8x8 and 8x10 so you can stagger them:

you shouldnt need any spacers, just bolt them on. I have 17x9's cobras on a 1st gen, and they fit perfect. Mustang wheels are a dime a dozen also-and they make all of them in black through the aftermarket. you should be able to run 9 or 10 inch wheels in back with 275's no problem.

^^ Don't you need longer studs, though? I had 18x9 Cobras on my 04 Escape, and I had to put longer studs on, plus I could have sworn I read somewhere on here that the Rangers needed the longer studs, too.

Longer studs and spacers if you want to keep your center cap on 93 and newer.

Yeah I want to keep my center cap. I think it looks stupid without them. And would like a 1/4 inch spacer work?
