New shoes on the ranger. 15x10 procomp soft 8s

I don't know how I pulled this off. I just got these wheels AND new tires for 100$, and then sold my old ones for 200$. I am a superstar. When I heard what size they were, I thought they would be too wide and look goofy, but I like them. Sorry the pics are blurry, I'll take more tomorrow.

they are 295/50/15s. There is no way that I am lifting it until gas goes down.I wish that the PO if the wheels hadn't painted the center caps black. I'm gonna get some chrome lug nuts soon, and maybe new chrome centers.

Thanks for the comments everyone. I think that it looks pretty cool. It definitely handles a lot different. It seems like there is a lot more feedback at the wheel.

If your worried about gas, 11.6" wide tires and heavy steel rims wont help

With those tires it looks like you are ready to go and do some dirt track racing.

I have been on the market for stock alloys since day one. I am just the kind of guy that waits for a good deal.
