Yup stock 15's. I want to bump to a 16 at most. There are a few more options for 16 inch wheels than 15's now adays.

Keep in mind when switching to 16" wheels that tires are gonna cost you more than 15" ones depending on what style of tire you're gonna run.. That's why I switched from 16" stock wheels to 15" Cepeks... Tires are WAY more affordable..

Prelim investigative work begins next weekend. little brother got another set of cobra front and rears and I've got an extra set of knuckles and hubs and calipers and brackets....so it's all doable to see just how much fab work on an adaptor bracket would be needed. I don't see it being difficult at all.

I did keep in mind tire price when I looked at going up an inch in rim size. I'm not doing it anytime soon so it is sitting on the back burner right now. I just bought a set of new tires in August, they aren't cheap either way. I want to know how this front end goes to. I'm needing to do front brakes on my Ranger and have to do rotors soon so I'm looking for a good set of rotors for dirt, snow and crap I can get into.

It was the factory spare.

If I remember right, you need at least 2.75 center bore to fit over a Warn. Most aftermarkets are 3 - 3.5 center bore.
