Third Gen Wheels and tires thread!
 
So lets see em, what wheels do you have on your third gen Ranger. I am looking for a new set of wheels, and I want some ideas. I am also thinking this will help out any other third gen owners that may want to see what you are rocking on your truck. So lifted, lowered or stock, POST EM UP!!

That is never out of the question, but I'd probably go powdercoat, for the extra money...I don't have to do it, and its tougher then combining 3 boxes of nails, a clown car, and a jihadist at a public mall. Wait...that's pretty weak isn't it...eh proved my point lol

I've looked at about 30 styles from various manufacturer's that are similar to your wheel, the soft 8's, and the alcoas that everyone lusts after. I want something similar to that, but at the same time, something that hasn't been seen...over, and over, and over on one of these trucks would be refreshing

I usually like a nice 5 spoke, or something similar to what you have. When the wheel screams "look at my small weiner" it is definately not for me. Hell I love black American Racing Steelies, one of my favorite wheels, and its not special...at all lol

I'm running some 99' Ranger 16's wrapped in GT radial MT/R's while I wait to mount my Goodyear MT/Rs that I bought at about half tread.

Tires might be bald as hell, but for free I had to take em.
