Which wheels on my 07' ranger 4x4 with MTZ's??

I have a 07' ranger 4x4 and I think I'm getting some 265-75R-16 Mickey thompson MTZ'S. Not sure if they come in white lettering or black sidewall but if I have a option, which would look better? Also should I get Classic 2's or DC'1's in black or polished? Any others? Here's a couple of pics. My frontend looks low but I haven't done a t-bar crank yet. Anybody have any pics of any newer rangers that may help my decision? Any newer blue rangers?? lol Please help.

I love my Classics, but go for something different, not many people do. I got a deal I couldn't pass up on my Classics.

well i'm really trying to not go mudding too much anymore cuz I just end up ruining my truck unless I need to for hunting but I like to go in the snow a lot and sand when I go camping at the dunes to go ride my banshee. I just love the mtz's.

You could prolly find a better tire for snow and sand than MTZ's. I am sure they perform better than most mud tires in the snow but MTZ's are not going to do you as good in the snow and sand as some other tires will.

they suck on dirt i can vouch for that..
me and a buddy were up on some dirt trails, he was in a 91 F250 7.3 non turbo.. so slower than *****..

i couldnt keep up because if i gassed it i would lose traction.
anywho, my .02

get some BFG Baja T/As

yeah but I love the look and I don't expect to do anything too extreme cuz come-on I got a stock height ranger... I aint expecting much... lol Actually my stockers do ALMOST anything I want but I want a little more traction so shouldn't the mtz's be a big improvement over what I got?
