Default Ultra Drifter Pics? Getting Tires (and maybe Wheels) this week. Help!!!

I've got a 2005 Ranger FX4 and I'm getting BFG A/T tires within the next week. I'm going to level the front end approx 1.5" and am trying to decide whether to go with 265/70R16s, or just go all out and get 15x8 wheels and 32x11.50R15 tires. It would only cost an extra $250 to get wheels and tires, but I can't decide on a wheel. I love the clean, factory look and don't want to make it look too cheesy. Any suggestions?

WHEELS IM CONSIDERING:
*Ultra - Drifter
*Ultra - Nomad
Ultra - Roca
American Racing - Ventura
American Racing - Baja

Here's what I'm working with:

I don't think this looks cheesy...


I think it looks beefy. It's my truck back in the day with 15x8's w/ 4" bs and 32x11.50's on a mild torsion crank.



32x11.50's and Nomads would look BOMB on your truck. Here's a pic from a meet thread here of another forum member's truck.....on nomads and 32's or 33's on a torsion crank...




And for the trifecta, here's BILLRITE BULLIES truck. Black trucks and Nomads belong together.





Sorry...Drifter's are far too brotastic for my tastes. American Baja(and all similarly styled wheels) are good looking.....but everyone and their brother has 'em. Roca's look like they're from 1999. Same goes with the Ventura's but make that 1994. And the rockin' stock wheels option.....well.....who wants to look like every one else?






Okay.... /end heavily opinionated post. Choose what you like, not what some guy on the internet with a ranger thinks. lol.

265/70/16 are a smaller tire that the 32x11.5x15 so go with the 32x11.5s theyll be cheaper as well and you have a whole bunch of wheel options with 15s

I don't mind them, but I think I like the nomad & drifter a little better. I don't know...the more I get thinking about it the more I keep telling myself to just stick with the factory wheels and go with a set of 265 BFGs. Dang this is a tough decision.

I still wanna see pics of 15x8 or 15x10 Drifters mounted to...well...anything. Seems like 15" Drifters & 33" BFGs would be a pretty sexy match.
