Default Lowering and tires and rims

I have a 1998 Ranger XLT ,I would like to put on the right Size rims and tires, want to put wide ones on the rear and maybe a little narrow for the front....Saw this pic on the internet and it is exactly what I want... but cannot fiqure rim size or tire size...
also want to drop it and looking for any input that would make it have a good stance.... The lowered Truck is the look I'm going for, and the second pic is the Truck I'm starting with..Thanks

DJM 4/5 kit would be a good place to start with lowering your truck. The wheels on that truck are 17x8 front and 17x10.5 rear FR500 Mustang wheels. Tire size is probably around a 245/45 and 275/40

Default Re: Lowering and tires and rims

have had my truck for about 2 months, just started customizing. got some black bullitts (17''x9'' - 17''x10.5''). Just ordered a DJM 2-3 drop. The tires for those have cost more then the rims and drop kit . anyone got pictures of the set up I'm shooting for?

It'll look fine, without knowing the tire size that you went with its hard to get an accurate picture. There have been several trucks running the same Bullitt wheels though
