i want my tires to stick out more.

hey guys, i have a stock height 97 xlt v6 2wd all stock. i want to know how i can achieve the agressive stance look with my ranger, by this i mean the look with the wheels sticking out a bit giving the ranger a more awesome look. ive seen many rangers out on the road with this look. do i need offset rims? bigger tires? both? i do not want to use any wheel spacers. if you have any input and pics of your rides that would be awesome!

From what ive gathered a 4" offset with lil wider wheel. a 15x8 would be good like djfllmn said

thanks guys. if it sticks out 1/2 inch to an inch would be perfect, just to have the wide stance look coz im very tired of my stocks tucked under the well. i figured maybe 15x8 cragar 8s with maybe 30" or 31x10.5 tires should do the trick???

My 15x8s poked past my flares a little with 12.5" wide tires. 3.313" back spacing(see avatar). Stock wheels are 4.5" back spacing so with a 4"back spacing like the Cragars you'll see a little more poke than stock!

Thats what happens when you use an (') on the mobile site.

I would go with a 30" on the 2wd. And with a 10.5" wide tire they probably won't stick out too far, if at all.

You need wheels with less offset.
