Nicee looking rims!

16" tires are a lame *** ***** when it comes to price vs 15s, but IMO they look so much better

I was considering 17's but not too sure, being as it eventually will get a 4/4 drop on it, i think the 16's would be the right fit for it

I'd say 17s or 18s would be badass with those wheels!

A buddy of mine has a 05 STX with 18's on it, and it looks very good, but if you do 18's you will want to lower it pretty sone after. Because, if not you will have a lot of gap.

Do they make white spokers for the 16" rangers anymore? I liked the old dodge white spokers i had on my 97 ranger. Mine where the 5 star spokers. Anyways those rims look good. I am just not a big fan of chrome wheels though.

I too have an STX too, and I like the wheels you chose, but I would DEFINITLY go with at least a 17" wheel. I know I did. I put a set of 17 x 8, Foose Old School Nitrous wheels on mine and used 245 tires.

Since you're lowering it go with atleast a 17. An 18 would look killer though with some 245/40/18's on them.

16" rims and tires on lowered trucks make me think of all those rice boys that lower their hondas, then throw on 14" aftermarket rims so they don't have to buy new tires, they just change them over. Lame in my book.

Lowering isnt always neccessary, thats why I hate posting pics here the first question is always something like 'looks good when u lowering it'

Sorry to HI Jack
