Default Mustang wheels on ranger?

Im new to the ranger forum and am looking on getting a Ranger 2WD Reg. Cab 97 up. I was wondering if my American Racing Torque Trust M wheels 17x9 and 17x10.5 would fit on the ranger? Does anyone have any pics of what a 10.5 would look like in the back?

Thanks,
Ben

The bolt pattern is the same for Ranger and 5-bolt Mustangs. You'll need to test fit them to see if your tire choice will clear.

Ive heard from people in the past that you may need to run spacers to prevent rubbing on the inner part of the front tire, especially when turning. That right rwenzing?

Definitely something to watch out for with stock Mustang wheels. Factory Ranger offset is +12mm. Most factory Mustang wheels have a higher positive offset which pulls the tire/wheel combo inward on a Ranger.

Aftermarket wheels like his Torque Thrust M's may or may not have that problem, depending on the offset.
