Thinking about black wheels, again

Painting the OEM wheels black didn't work too well for me and not completely liking the Cragar D window, but American Racing Mojave ATX "teflon" wheel is more what I'm looking for.



Stock suspension, 2wd, stock tire height - either 225/70-15 or 235/60-16 tires. Don't really care if they're 15's or 16's just whichever ones would look better.

Only problem I have with anything polished is that I'm too lazy to polish them, and I'm back to trying to dechrome my truck again. If I didn't go with a black wheel, I'd probably choose one of these as a 2nd and 3rd choice...

I like the teflon's a lot, and the stock tremor wheels. But I'm not a fan of the Outlaw II's. And I'd probably say 15" wheels, tires are cheaper for 15's.

Probably. That's why I'm posting my wheel choices here, so you guys can let me know when I'm messing up.

you'll sit a bit further out than stock but not by a dramatic amount. Stock backspacing is 4.5". Mine are 3.313 so they will stick out more than those ones you're looking at but they stick out a little bit past the fender flares to give you an idea.

Thanks for the info. Looks like I'll be getting 16's after all...

These:

OR the 16" ATX Chamber wheels. Indecisiveness sucks.

I have these on my Bronco and I love them. Although, I do kinda miss my polished wheels.

Those are ugly as hell. If your going to buy wheels why not buy some that will look good and be functional

ProComp 7028 Series is what I have on my truck.



I haven't seen another truck in person that has them...I had to wait almost 3 months to get mine.

Well, I decided to still go with an ugly wheel (after I changed my mind for about the 5th time, of course) and I can't really tell if they're all that functional or not, but they were a cheap $75 each...and I won't have to look at the grossness of the OEM chrome anymore.

I went with a 15x7 with 4.5 backspacing - I still have 8/32 tread left and I wanted to just remount my old tires. Picture of ugly wheels:

I get that all the time, for just buying a Ranger, so I'm not offended in the least.


They arrived today and I remounted my Continental tires (white letters out) ...looks so good I almost can't stand it.
