Talking Rim & Tire Ideas?

Hello everyone. Just got a new Ranger. I was wondering if people had any pics of their rims and tires. I was thinking of Helo 791s or some Dick Cepek DC-1s. I want to see how they look. Ideas are greatly appreciated. thanks!

For what it's worth, I know 15x8 and 15x10 DC1's definately clear 03+ front brakes(speaking about another thread you've got regarding clearing hte brakes).

yea im definatley doing a BL. I was against it at first. But if it really truely works for the 09, then Im going to do it. Im just afraid of getting half way through installation and having an oh crap moment because it isnt working. Do you know if the 15x8 or 15x10 Micky Thompson Classic 2s will clear the caliper?

Here's something more along the lines of what the OP is looking for....

flares and tires sticking past them....15x10 wheels w/ 4" backspace, 12.50 tires. I know it's alot taller than what the OP is looking at doing, but it does give an idea of 10" with 12.50....
