Default Re: Sticks-2003 Ranger Edge

I thought I liked the balloon tire look, and on some trucks I still do.

Alot of this has to do with the wheels. My current steelies are a pain to keep balanced, so I wanted to switch to aluminum rims. The only ones I like are the 7089's, but I don't like the way they look in a 15" or 16" diameter. So I chose 17's.

Plus, I like the way this truck looks, minus the Swampers.

What's the reason for steel making it harder to stay balanced?

It's my buddy's, he just got it in a trade. He's going for a different look though, so he's trying to trade these.

Not trying to junk up your thread Shaun, just seeing balloon tires made me want to post this

Ever since I sold my first set, I've regretted it. So, I bought another set of these:



I know a lot of people don't like them, and I couldn't give two shits if you paid me.

As do I. Before I even bought my Ranger, I wanted a set for it. Wish I never sold my first set because they were in really good shape compared to this set. Oh well.

Paint matched mirrors.

Also ditched the front plate frame.





I really need to finish the 06+ bumper.
