Question for anyone with American Racing wheels

So, here's my question. My uncle has a set of American racing 15X10" wheels that he got for his Jeep Wrangler. He never got them put on because he found a different set off of a junked Jeep that he liked better. I was wondering if there would be any fitting issues with these wheels on my 04 Ranger. He was looking to get rid of them a while ago, and I remember him saying they're actually designed to fit Ford Pickups, but would also fit Jeeps.

The reason I'm asking this is because I had some American Racing (actually Motegi, but they're a division of American Racing), and they fit terribly on my Eclipse. I was just wondering if all their wheels had fitting issues like the ones I had on the Eclipse.

Thanks.

should be fine...a few people have AR wheels here, as long as its 5 x 4.5 bolt pattern and good backspacing should be fine.

you will need new tires to run the 15x10s like 12.50 wide tires. other than that they should be fine

Would there be any fitment issues with those larger tires like turning wise, and rubbing with the stock suspension?

Sorry if you guys heard questions like this numerous times. I'm just learning about all this truck stuff now.

Well, I'll just keep them then until I get a little lift on the Ranger.
