Default Stock ugly chrome steel 15" rims

I have searched till I am blue in the face, I can't find a set of stock rims in any shape at all. And the ones in good shape they want more than retail.

I have a little 2000 I'm going to be selling but the wheels are way too rusty.

One of you within a hundred miles or so is bound to have a better set in their garage removed from a ranger to put monster tires on.

These are the ones I'm replacing:

Is it the actual wheel that is rusty or the chrome that is looking like ass?

If it's just the chrome wheel cover you can get them cheap:

If it's the steel wheel, probably check craigslist.

Cool thanks Nigel, I'm on CL several times a day and none have popped up within driving range.

Might want to put a ISO listing on Craigslist or ask people with Ranger parts listed if they have rims. I had a set just like you are looking for in my attic for two years thinking they weren't even worth the effort to list and a guy just asked if I had any... Selling them today for 100 what I thought they were worth.

LMC truck has chrome covers in that style that go on like hubcaps. Might be a cheaper alternative to replacement.

That is an excellent alternative.

^Those fit bulky and do not stay on... Only good ones are the ones that are factory pressed/glued on the earlier steel wheels (not the 2010-11s which were also bulky).

I had those covers and lost one even after gluing them on.

Sand the wheels down and paint them if you think market value on used wheels is beyond your means.

OK what I did was scotchbrite and WD-40. They looked amazing compared to what they were and the truck sold in one day. The hub caps looked kinda bulky as one said.

These had a thin stamped piece chromed over the steel wheels, had not seen that. Most of the rust was from years of not washing and cheap front brake pads and not necessarily the wheels so it came off with some effort. Took me about an hour and 45 minutes to do all 4.
