Default rockatar rims ?

Hey i have an 01 ranger edge.4x4 with 16" tires now. Is like to put kmc rockstar runs and tires on can I put 18 or 20 runs on it and what kind of tires can I put on with minimal to no lift on the truck if I have to lift the truck can I use a body lift or should I do a spindle lift. Any help would be appreciated and any links to websites with products would be great.

You can go with 18" rims are you gonna run a low profile tire I know some put on 20" but it looks crappy

Bodylift is cheaper

well since you have a 4x4 a spindle lift wont work youll have to go with a bl or a $1600 superlift and you can go with 18s and a nice offroad tire but dont do low pros on a 4x4 it defeats its purpose but a 17x9 would look better in my honest opinion but thats my .02

Thanks I'm pretty much set on going with the 18" with the offroads I just am unsure as to if kmc makes the lug size for the ranger I think mine is 5x4.5 is that the right figure and what size is that in mm

5x4.5 is correct for the ranger

----------

114.3 is the mm of 4.5"

Yea its 5x4.5 and the mm might be 114 something I think it'll look sweet not a bug fan of the rockets but it'll be wild but be ready for expensive tires

17 inch tires are more expensive than 18's

why put 18's on an off road truck? more sidewall on the tire from a 15" rim will give you a better ride both on and off the road. and if you have to get 18's, please dont get those tool-ass rockstars.

But then that jeep would be winning.


Oh and i've seen lower profile on large rims offroading tires (aka those retarded F150 owners), it just looks so wrong, and very unpractical.
