If they were going on a lifted F-series or something, I think it'd look great.. But otherwise, on a Ranger, it'd have to be 2wd and low profiles, methinks.. I do like the look of 'em though.. But, for the low profiles, not too low..

i dont like the look that much, the rim design just doesnt appeal to me, i like the black rim with the bright lip, but the spokes dont do anything for me. also the price seems a bit high for 18s..... esp black ones

No they would stick in more if you have a higher number for backspacing. So if the new ones are 5 and the old ones are 3.25 then the new ones are gonna be sucked in closer to your truck.
