Default Which Wheels?

Hey guys i need help deciding which rims would look best on my truck. if anyone has anything similar please show me a picture. the first one is my stock ranger rims, im thinking about putting bigger tires on this like a 285/75/15 and the second are rims from an explorer, also thinking about large tires with the 265/70/17. the third are some 20" status that really caught my eyes. and i was gonna put 285/50/20 tires

Hey dude! keep in mind that 20's are gonna be much heavier than the 15's or 17's. If you're gonna put on some 20's, you'll need to upgrade your brakes too. It will be hard for those single piston calipers to stop the 20's in a good safe distance. And don't even try to slam on the brakes! Something could brake easier. Definitely go with the 17's. They're still light and not hard on the eyes.

If your not gonna get the 20's I would say go with a 15 or 16 cuz tires will be cheaper. Not saying go with the 15 you have listed up there but a different one maybe.

depends on what look you are going for. 20" and lowered will give a more show look (truck looks stock) other than the sound system.
