20" rims? I'm not sure what is out there for them. You might be better served checking out Tire Rack and see what is available and if there is any reviews on them being used on Rangers.

Yeah I've looked at tire rack, and tirediscounters but 200 a tire is a bit much, I know the place that tinted my windows has some falkens for 150 a piece, they a well known car customizing shop called "spade kreations"

Falken's are decent tires. If you were looking to get tires for 20's that were cheap, you picked rims that were too big.lol

MAKE SURE YOU KEEP YOUR ALIGNMENT TRUE. BIG RIMS EAT TIRES EVEN IF IT'S ONLY A LITTLE OUT.

Look up continental tires DWS, That's what I run with my 18's they handle the rain very well. not the best pic but you can see the tread pattern

I hate Falkens with a passion. They are good tires to drift, they can't handle grip driving.

i got the nitto neoGen i dont have a picture of them... google search them i think they're great in wet road conditions and they have an awesome look to them. to me they look really aggressive and they have great tread wear they're worth every penny!

sumitomo htrII's are pretty inexpensive and are decent! not sure about rain. falken azenis' suck in rain, but are an excellent grip tire. wore out pretty fast. my nexen n3000s were decent, and lasted a while. they were okay in the rain.

i forgot a lot of other tires.
