Default New Wheels, well to me atleast

i got my new wheels this weekend. They are from my friends 06 Sport. All for wheels and tires, still 75% tread and full size spare, $300. And they look good on the mazda, gets me 2 in higher than the other tires. i got a bit of rub on the sway bar and a bit on the lower control arm i think, any suggestions? (stock 2x4) I will be doing a 3 in spindle lift soon, you think that would help.
Well onto pics.
New And Old

Best rim out of them all

All on, next to the truck they came off of


I took them back off for now, i have to de-mount the tires so i can strip the wheels of the ford clear and polish them. and custom make a hub cap.

Had those on my Escape. Wish I had them now. You mention custom making a hub cap - how is that done? I just got a set of used rims and the caps are pretty beat.

I plan on filling in the ford with bondo, painting it red, masking the mazda symbol then painting that silver, so the end result is a silver cap with the red mazda symbol
