I think the wheels will look great, not sure if you will have to lift it though.

I have those wheels in 15x8 with 31s. They stick out quite a bit in the front cuz of the fabtech spindles. I have only had them a month but so far all is good. You should like them. Heres a crappy phone pic but gives you an idea.

Don't buy Steel wheels x2.

I know these are nice because they are cheap but sand is gonna tear them down. Get Teflon coated wheels

If your planning on lifting your truck using Fabtech spindles you may want to look at different wheels since the Unique 297 series for rangers are only available in 4.0 plus backspacing and I believe the Fabtech require 3.75 max.

Im pretty sure the offset on those wheels will still allow you to run them on fabtech spindles. And yes I would recommend just spending extra on nice alum wheels. I did just get over 300 miles on a full tank! 23 mpgs with the steel wheels. Wonder how much better it would be with alum wheels.

I use to have 31x10.50 on stock rims didnt look to bad. But with your truck and a 3" lift you could fit up to 35's. I did it and love how my truck looks.

I've seen 35's on 3" of lift and it looks really crammed.. Without cutting your fenders you'll rub like no other
