NEW WHEELS MOUNTED!

Well, I finally sold the Alcoas. im still going to gave to out of pocket some cash, but at least im getting NEW wheels! I decided to go with Pacer's version of MT classics. They are the exact same wheel for cheaper. I could have bought the MTs on 4wheelparts.com, but by the time I pay for centers and lugs and have them installed, its still gonna cost me about the same as if i got them locally, so i ordered them locally. Anyhow, most of ya'll know what a MT Classic is but here are my Pacer versions:

orered them in 15x8 w/ 3.75 BS. getting the chrome lugs and all. Ill probably end up putting the factory ford chrome center caps in place of the pacer centercaps to make the look more OEM.



persoanlly, they are going to look sick with my XLT chrome grille and LII Tow hooks. now Im going to have to polish the ol tool box to match!

And before anyone says it--NO, IM NOT LIFTING IT. I can , but i dont want the hassle of "having' to buy bigger tires, and worse gas mileage. Sure it looks badass, but i dont want it on my DD.

I wonder if the MT center caps would work on those rims? I have 4 brand new ones sitting in my garage if you want to try them out one day. They look a lot nicer than those.

Those are gonna look killer though! Make sure to keep a coat of wax on them in the winter though to get them from getting pitted. Mine got super nasty when I went to App

K, when you get the rims measure the inside hole opening just so I can make sure they'll fit.

Its going to look great Scott. I will be getting similar wheels when I BL my Ranger. I thought about black wheels but my Bronco is already blacked out. Plus silver and chrome looks so damn good together

you dont have to buy bigger tires if you lift it but the look will make you want to. AND I STILL get good gas mileage being lifted... itll look good but it will look like 80% of rangers on the net

Nice choice.

I think they will add to the chrome already on your truck nicely.
