Default Will these 18" wheels fit my 97 Ranger Xlt?

Does anybody know if these rims would fit?

9,5x18 ET30
5x114,3
72,6mm center hub, but could use an adaptor

I have problems with rubbing at full turn for my setup. 18x8.5 +20 front and 18x9.5 +20 rear. Just make sure to get a hubcentric ring or else youll be regretting it.

You say regretting it. What specifically what happens, what is known to happen in this case/scenario?

If your wheel isnt center on your hub then it can come loose and your wheel will fall off

Of course. From this I learned something new-hub centric rings. Thanx.

Incidentally I am trying to resolve a similar issue with a new to barb 98 xlt 2.5. I just installed 18 inch wheels from an Explorer, 07-09 I believe.

The wheels are bouncy way more than just needing a wheel balancing. I can't figure out hub centric ring sizes and spacers required. Do you mind to give me your thoughts at the post? The link is here. And thanx.
