Default Tell me what you think...

Ok hi Everyone lol..


I have a 1998 ext cab xlt with 14's on it. I hate the 14's they make my wheel wells look freaking huge and it is hard to find a good A/T tire for them.

I found a set of stock 16 inch sport trac rims that i was thinking about getting. They look like these http://www.finishlinewheels.com/enla...ls+RANGER+Rims
I was wondering do you guys think they would look good on this.



Also what would be the biggest tire i could fit on there with out rubbing? I know every truck is different but i kind of need a starting point.. I am hopping that the stock tires off of the sport trac will fit and last a lil while. I need a good A/T tire as i travel alot of dirt and muddy roads plus the snow i deal with.

The tire size is 215 70 14 if i remember correct.


Truthfully i do like the stock rims on this truck because you don't see them on very many rangers i just don't understand why ford would put 14's on a truck and stick 17's on a taurus.


Now to get a hold of the junk yard and see how much they want for them. What do you guys think would be a good price to pay for a set of 4

The truck came with the 5 big hole 5 small hole rims on it stock here is a better pic of them.
Like i said if there were 15's or 16's i would keep em on there but it is a pain in the behind to find a good A/T tire for the 14's and it just looks out of place.
