I have a set of Alcoas I am not going to use anymore. I bought them off a member here and decided I am not going to use them. They are in really good shape just a little surface rust under the clear coat and where the lug nuts go.

I was supposed to buy those rims but couldn't really afford it, so I cheaped out and bought steel Cragars. I'm happy,but not as happy as i'd have been with those.

You should buy 'em. they're a timless style that looks good on pretty much anything.

15's wont fit on the 04 FX4's. the front calipers are too big for them. even if they did i just got sum brand new 285/75/16's. so i gotta have 16s

Not true most if not all aftermarket 15" wheels will fit any year ranger new or old. The 15" wheels that dont fit are the 2wd "edge plus" wheels of years '01-'04 these

they dont fit any '03+ 4x4 ranger

Do the cragar soft 8 wheels affect gas mileage since their steel? Aren't they heavier?
