Default Wheel swap for 2000 Ford Ranger

My ford ranger originally came with the chromed steel wheels in 15 inch diameter. I got tired of having to hunt for cheap 15 inch pulloffs (aka used tires). So I found these 17 inch Mustang wheels and tires for $200

Nice find for $200. I assume you had to use spacers?

Why did you have to hunt for cheap 15" pulloffs? And what has changed now? I'd think it would be harder to find cheap 17" pulloffs.

Around where I live, 15's are hard to come by.

There aren't any tire stores where you live?

Yes, but I'm not spending 300+ dollars on some new tires, when I can get pulloffs that last just as long for 180
