I think I like the Prostars better, because they are different, but I like the Draglite's too.

i need to find something new since i had an unwanted meeting with a curb. I just bought a set of M/T sportsmans from a friend to play with and i dont even want to put them on my rims. the guy i bought the tires off of works at a performance shop and can get me these for next to nothing. plus i need something that i can order very wide later on because of a side project i need them for but those project pics will be later

They are ungodly expensive.


I voted ProStar.....as i have a set very very similar sitting in boxes for my '71 Chevy.....don't know how well they'd look on a ranger.

They're both bad.... but hey, if you like 'em.... I'd go with the Draglite just 'cause they're a little more original...

if any body can find me a set of wheels with these sizes im game. thats part of the reason im looking at these. i need them to be a 15 inch rim. 2 that are 8"wide 2 that are 10"wide and 2 that are 12-14" wide. prefer 14". yes wide i know and odd number but thats what i need. willing to spend money but nothing toooo crazy.

I'm not a big fan of either wheel, but I would choose the second of the two. Is there anything special about these wheels?
