Rubicon rims on a ranger?

Does anyone have picture of these rims on a ranger?


If not, can someone photochop them on my truck.

Thanks

hmm, the only problem I am having with the photoshopping for ya, is that flash was used on that rim, and it makes it way to bright.. I can pop the rims on there.. but it looks like you have blaringly white photoshopped rims on it.. and doesnt give a good perspective

I've thought of doing that before as well, they kind of remind me of Mr. Special's rims. Depending on the backspacing, I think they would like killer on there.

I personally think Jeep wheels on a Ranger would look like ***...

What year are they? You may run into lug pattern problems.

===========================================
The problem isn't the backspacin or the bolt pattern, it will be that the hub hole is too small to fit over the Ranger hub...............

I've got Jeep Wrangler wheels on my 93 Ranger, fit great on the rear, but I had to bore em out to clear the front hubs, and then I used some aftermarket push-through center caps. My Wrangler wheels hub hole was cone shaped, as it was large enough for the hub to start into, but narrowed down & wouldn't mount, so I took em to a machine shop & had em bored out after we checked to make sure that the integrity of the wheel wouldn't be lost & dangerous. Here's pics:

I've looked at those style of Jeep wheels with this in mind and didn't think there was enough material to bore em out & maintain the integrity of the wheel along with the looks.

I do agree with the offset bein too little...................

I like the offset with my Wrangler's, but wish they were available in a wider version, 15X10's in the Wrangler style wheel would be SWEET IMO!
