How do you think this setup would work?

Hey everyone, I'm new here (mostly been roaming around and sucking up knowledge on how to fix things!)

Anyway, I bought a blue 2004 Ranger (FX4 L2) and I'm looking to get some new wheels/tires for it (it has the stock ones on there now but I think there may be a problem with them - truck was getting the shakes on the highway, had everything aligned and balanced, but they weren't able to get one of them into good balance. Still much improved, but I'd like to get things right!)

Looking around, I can get a set of Vision 375 Warrior wheels (16") with Hankook DynaPro ATM RF10 tires, balanced and shipped for around $960.

So, does anyone have any experience/opinions with either of those? Other suggestions? Price is a pretty big concern, don't want to go a lot higher. As for the tires, I just want them to last and perform decently in dirt/snow (though they may have a lot of highway miles in between).

Link to the wheels:

Link to the tires:
Tire Details - Discount Tire Direct

(I'm liking discounttire.com due to the free shipping.)

Also, do you know if I would need to do anything else to put them on the truck? Offsets and spacers and whatnot? I haven't replaced wheels before - the truck is all stock (15" wheels) at the moment.


Thanks!


(And if there's already a thread about exactly this... please slap me and point me in the right direction!)
