Not my cup of tea, but id personally stay away from the 20s. IMO, they dont look right on a ranger and the tires are usually pretty spendy.

They come in 20's np. if you want 18s you have to get them drilled for your bolt pattern

Please dont go with rockstars.. Those wheels only look good on big full sizes. Plus they have no lip at all..

if your lifting you truck then i wouldn't go above 18s personally. Tires get very expensive after 17s. it does look good and it can be done. also i dont like the rockstars but its your choice. Im more of a 17 XD Hoss kinda guy

There are atlest 15 sets of rockstars around my area.. I guess I'm just really tired of seeing them.

But I have to admit... My friend's blazer looks good on them.

Different strokes for different folks. I'm with you, though. Except, 16's are what I want.

the rockstar rims and those mud grapplers are the best set up imo... but only on lifted diesels and such. not a fan of it on the blazer. sorry
