1. ATX Mojave

2005 Ford Ranger Sup 4wd FX4

2. Ultra Baja Champ

2005 Ford Ranger Sup 4wd FX4

3. Ultra Rogue

Just a word of caution George, 2 of those wheels are polished and 1 is machined. Pay very close attention to the type of finish each style has good and bad points and different types of care. I went with polished wheels because you can always polish them back since they wont flake or chip like cleared or chrome but in the same they can be tough to keep that way sometimes.

Out of the wheels you have there I like the first one the best myself

Mojave's are awesome George and I believe they come in black. I checked the Alcoa site today and they run like $300 a pop! Dang! I've got a post up about them on Ranger Forums. A guy has a set but he's in Ontario I believe. Still got feelers out for ya!

Gotcha, in the Ranger forum, a post said 16's with a 285 tire will be about a 32 equivalent. Does that sound right?

Wow George, you are looking at putting some big meat under your Ranger.

I have 265/75R16's on my 150 and they look just right on it.

ill def keep a look out, esp being as im searching high and low for wheels. as for the 285/75 thats a huge foot print over 11 inches would be on the ground. Does DE have a law about how wide wheels can be?? (i dont know being as i dont particularly follow DE law)
