I'm so undecisive about things. I've wanted a lifted truck for the longest time. Then i'll see some other look and want to do that..sooo MAYBE i'll stick with this one..but I' was wondering what yall thought about these rims. They are the FR 500 mustang rims with a 2/3 drop on the ranger. ok ........
1)do yall like these?
2)which rim do you think would look better with my wedgewood blue color?
3)What would be a good tire size for these? I think I read 255/45/18 would be a good one? Because I'm wanting to only lower the truck a little, but at the same time fill up a good portion of the fender well and make the rim/tire combo look proportional to the truck.

THOUGHTS? OPINIONS?

The top with a blue truck but those 2nd ones on a DSG truck would be amazinggggg. Just go ahead and do a 4/5 drop, you'll want to a week after you get your 2/3 lol.

1: YES!!!!
2: Either, but imo, #2 for a deepwedgewood truck.....i am have a dark bias though.
3: I think your gonna want a 27"ish tire for a 2/3 drop....i don't really knowwhat i'm talking about though.

Both of those choices look very similar to the optional (sometimes standard) Y-spoke wheel offered for the Ford Ranger's. Personally, for the truck color, I'd go with the second choice.

i think there is to much open space with those wheels to be used on a ranger personally.

there gonna show all the ugly brakes and maybe the suspension parts.

maybe something with a little more mass to them?

Yeah thats true Mark, if you really want those rims swap in a Explorer axle with disc brakes so you can have good lookin' brakes to show through those awesome rims.
