i bought 4 snow tires on 14 inch rims from a junk yard. the man who sold them to me assured me that they were straight off a ranger, i made sure they had the 4.5 lug spacing, but i was oblivious to the idea that the hub sizes may not fit. so i tried installing them and the hole in the center of the rim is just a little bit too small to fit on my axels, my only feasible option is to sell them. my first question is if they won't fit on my ranger, what will they fit? are there different hub sizes for 4x4 and 2x4? is it about the year of the truck? i don't want to sell them to another unsuspecting inexperienced person, putting them into the same position that i am currently in.
second is how can i avoid making this mistake again? what number do i have to check to make sure the hole in the center of the lugs is the right size for my 2000 2wd ranger xlt?
and my last question: anyone wana buy 4 snow tires on rims for 300 bucks?
i really just wana break even and move on. it's supposed to snow all week and i just got done putting my summer tires back on
