Default FR500's on my truck?

I snagged one of Alicia's wheels off the stang today and snapped a pic. Do you think I should get a second set of FR500s for the Ranger or something different? The truck will be lowered 2/3 in a couple of weeks. Tails will be blacked out, tint will be dark and grill and headlights will be different... probly black.

I like the wheels on rangers... but personally you will need a bigger drop to pull them off.

I think they would go well with your FX theme.

But I agree with the masses. Lower it a bit more, or add a bit more tire.
