Default Fail!

So, I bought these rims and tires today that came off of another ranger. They are 17" enkei rims with whatever size tires on them. They have ok tread, maybe 30% left. I tried to put them on my truck today and I couldn't even get the airgun on to tighten the lug nut. I guess I need different lug nuts for it to work. But, after seeing them on there and after driving around in the woods at the Florida meet, I think I need to go bigger. What do you think? Anybody want to trade? lol

Yeah man, Honestly they looked better off the truck when you showed me the pic. I would get a little beefier looking wheel. I'm sure you wont have any trouble getting rid of those wheels tho. They look good but just dont look right on your truck.

what size are those rims in width.
Just by looking at the pic and the fender, they dont look like 17's (probably just the way the picture looks though.
At any rate, if you wanna sell.....
