Icon14 Noob question: Will these fit my truck?

I have a 2001 Ranger Edge 2-door supercab. I have the stock 15"s on the truck now. What would it take to get these wheels to fit on my truck? Will I need to get a lift kit? If so what kit do I need and whats the cost? Here's the wheels: Super Swampers

ok so what size would fit and look good with a lift and without a lift (I understand that with a lift, you can have larger tires)? The stock wheels just look a little wimpy

at 15" wide, i think them would look silly, and the poor front end parts...
who knows tho, it might look good, try to get the backspacing before you buy them wheel, if you do.

if you are 2wd, my dad is selling a set of procomp lift spindles with an add-a-leaf.

I won't buy those. your right 15" isn't needed/overkill/not worth it. I will try to find something like what "jgibbs" reccomended. i'll start searching for a lift kit.

Yes the truck is 2wd. I wish you were closer so we could work out a deal on the kit installed.

Ya, definitely don't get a 15 wide tire. That's just gay. I love the color of your truck though!

Your joking right?

1) 2WD = spindle lift, not a body lift
2) 32x11.50x15s = fit stock
