Soft 8s aluminum counterpart???

Well my dad told me to look for some wheels and tires i like and hed help me out and i like the black soft 8s but he told me to try and find something thats not steel. What sugjestions do you have? also what other wheels do you think would look good on my truck? anyone else have a white 93-97 supercab i could get ideas from?

original idea was 15x8 Cragar soft 8s(black) with 31x10.50s bfg T/A KOs

not steel cause of the rolling mass would be heavier? Pics of the truck would be good.

i'm not a fan of dc2s.

some examples i like:

Level 8 Strike 5


MB Wheels 72




Black Rock D-Window


these are all not steel, and in my opinion, very clean, relatively cheap, good looking wheels.

dang those level 8 strike 5s and the black rock d windows are awesome, i dont see any of the strike 5s in 15" though and i was wanting to try and stay at 15" so i can use the tires i currently have, i think im bout to do a quick photoshop to get an idea of what they might look like on my truck anyways...

southern dreamz, i love your truck what size tires do you have on the procomps ?

and thanks guys for helping the new guy out, Ive got a lot to learn and im thankful for any knowledge concerning my ranger

It's in my signature but they are 15x10 wheels with 33x12.50R15 BFG KM2's. And a 3" PA body lift. Only rub when I hit a bump hard and the wheels are turned, like entering a parking lot where it goes up from the road.
