New wheels and tires

First off, in the future I'm planning on lifting my '02 4x4 ranger and kinda just getting ready for that right now. I need new tires right now before the snow flies and thinking if i'm getting new tires might as well get new wheels too. I'm thinking about getting 15x10 wheels and sticking 32's on them for now til i get a susp' lift or b/l lift or even both to fit 33's or 35's in the future (prefer 35's). What are your guys opinions on doing this? Thank you.

wise choice for the time being 32's now 35's later, and it will be good to go with the 15x10 because thats what you'll want with the 35's. Now for the journey of finding the perfect wheels, what are you thinking? .....Classic II's lol?

Haha... Classic IIs. lol. Does anyone make a different rim that will fit a ranger that isn't fully custom made(ie. HRE, iForged, etc.)?? I was actually lookin at the 18" Classic IIs to be a little different. just gotta find tires, now.

besides rocks and classic II's there isnt a whole lot of wheels that are a 15x10 that fit the ranger. i mean there are some but there far and few between. also. if you want 15x10 with 32's you will need to crank the t-bars and trim slightly most likely. now if you want to do it the nice and smart way right now just order up the body lift it can be found for $150 if you hunt for it. then from summitracing.com you can get a set of classic II for like $440 or something near there. and if you want get some Buckshot mudders 33x12.5x15. Brian a member here sells them and you can get a set for $500 TO YOUR DOOR there are a great mudder and you can easly pull 50000miles out of them and then some. here is two body lifts and 15x10 with 33x12.5 that where installed recently. the blue edge is Zachs truck and the black one is Bills

just keep saving and do it at once. if you have the stock 15x7 right now just get the 33's for a few weeks then get the body lift and 15x10. beleave me it will be worth the $

Hey, I found some wheels and tires that I like... 18"x10" Classic IIs and 255/60R18 Toyo Proxes S/T. Well, they're not AT or MTs, but I'll wait till I get my RCD lift, so I can get some bigger tires. $1650 this weekend, but it'll be a while... so they'll be $1840 from 4wheelparts.com. If anyone can find a better price, tell me thanks!

Well, I kninda changed my mind... I'm gonna use those wheels with an RCD 6" lift for my 2WD or get a pro comp lift. Not sure which one. I'm not gonna use it for mudding... maybe just a little trail-riding. Well, that's just because that's how you get to my house...lol.

I just found out that Nitto Terragrapplers and Toyo Open Countys come in that size (285/60-18) and I like the KMC Dimes but they are only 8.5" wide and that wouldn't work out with most 33s or 35s. I guess I'm definitely going with the RCD lift.
