Default stock wheels?

hey I just bought my truck last night and was wondering if these are the stock wheels? I believe so, but can I fit my 32x11.5x15 tires on it? They have 30x9.5x15 on there now that will need replacing and I have a gently used set from my jeep. Thanks!

Yes they are stock Alcoa wheels

32" tires you need to crank the t-bars to get some distance there but will probbaly rub under full turn of the steering wheel

are these wheel 15x8? I might have an opportunity to trade for 32x12.5x15 tires (1 inch wider then mine) and was wondering if I could get them to fit... Thanks!

Stock FX4 Alcoas are 15x7, technicallly too narrow to be manufacturer recommended for 12.50's or 11.50's but some people do it anyway.

ok...ill try my best.

A Ranger FX4 Level II (Which im presuming you have bc you have Alcoa Wheels) is the TOP-OF-THE-LINE Ranger. the best they make. it was built to be an off-road machine straight off the assembly line.

Stock & Included Options:

-- XLT Basics & Standard Options due to FX4 Level II Package --

- 4.0L V6 SOHC (207 hp @ 5,250 rpm & 238 ft-lbs torque @ 3,000 rpm)
- 5 Speed Manual Trans
- 4x4 On-The-Fly ('03 was last year to get manual t-case)
- power package: keyless remote entry, power windows, power locks, power mirrors, tilt, cruise, AC.
- Sliding Rear Window
- Class III Trailer Hitch
- 4-Door Super Cab

-- FX4 Level II Package Consists Of: --

- 31 x 10.50 x 15 BFG All-Terrains
- Alcoa 15x7 wheels
- Torsen Limited-Slip Differential
- 4.10 axle
- Bilstein shocks
- 3 skid plates
- Body Color Grille (06'+)
- Stainless Steel Front Tow Hooks
- Am/FM Stereo w/ MP3/CD & Cassette (dual deck is so awesome!)
- Two-Tone Bucket Seats (red and black in my case) or Black leather seats
- Chrome Shifter (if mounted with manual)
- manual Transfer case (2001-2003)
- Black Interior


It is the Ranger everyone wants, but costs alot more. i think it costs somewhere between 3-4k more than mine did brandnew.

so if you ahve any of this it is a level II.

Some pics of your truck would be nice!

and BTW, ur wheels came stock with BFG AT Ko tires whcich look badass on Alcoas

thanks for the info.... The truck came with really worn 30x9.5x15 tires on it, so those are getting replaced and weather here in the chicago area has been really crappy so I refuse to take pics without it being detailed, but yes my truck has all of the above except for the 2 tone seats (they're black bucket seats with a weird pattern in the middle). Here a quick pic from the dealer:



now I have seen people put in Level III and such on some of the other forums... is that because of more modifications? (I ask because I'm coming from the Subaru world where people would have stage 1, stage 2, stage 3, etc. depending on their engine modifications and tunes and such)

I'd go with minty, but not mint. They're supposed to say ALCOA on them, mint. It looks like yours have been cleaned/polished and the ALCOA stamp was lost in the process. Not a big deal, IMHO, and still a damn fine looking wheel.
