Need Black rims without raising my Edge

I would like to put some black 5 or 6 spoke wheels on my '05 Ranger but I do not want to make my truck any higher. Anyone know of some rims that will work for me?

just get the same size rim as your current and you will get no lift.... and if you want bigger black rims then your current then just go with a bigger rim and a skinnier tire...

what? wheel size has nothing to do with lifting/lowering/ride height. its the tires.

yeah that what most would recommend i belive. with the mustang rims your going to have to us a spacer anyway.

when i do mine i might have to bump for 18x10 cause 285 in the back is prob pushing it. lol

I'm presently running a set of the Newer Eagle GT's in the snow to see how well they work. So far, their ' ok ', nothing like a blizzak or studded snow/ice tire. I haven't hit any ' serious snow ' or anything over 6 inches with a solid bottom on the road ( compressed/ice ).


Lazler..

Yes. I had 17x9's with a +26mm offset, no spacers nor adapters, no wheel rub at all. I ran 255/55/17 tires on them.
