new wheels?

i just bought a 2wd 96 ranger and i wanted some new tires and wheels. ive been looking at 17" cobra rims and i was wondering if anyone had pictures of how they look on these trucks... also, i was wondering if the spacers were necessary or not?

yes you will need spacers in the front 5/16 just to put them on and 1" adapters to get the center caps to go on.

i ran Bullit mustang rims on my splash back when i had it

thats exactly what it is, an opinion, if it looked so bad, maybe half of the ranger population wouldnt be running cobras (not really half, just a made up number)
