    Have some time to kill at work so I decided to start browsing potential wheel options. Bigger tires and aftermarket wheels will probably be one of my first mods as I'm not particularly thrilled with any of the OEM offerings; they all look too car-like for my tastes.

    These are my current top choices. Any other decent-looking options you guys know of? I really don't like the fake bro-beadlocks but these days it's hard to find a wheel manufacturer that doesn't bedazzle the wheel lips.

    Truck color will either be Hot Pepper Red or Magnetic (also considering Lightning Blue). I'm also not a fan of black wheels or really dark gray. Looking for a lighter gray gunmetal color or bronze depending on truck color.

    Icon Rebound is probably my most favorite at this time:

    I too can't stand the fake beadlocks. It drives me nuts that so many are that way. That is why I am going with the Raptor rims.

    Those aren't too bad but only come in 20s. You see those a lot in my area on lowered trucks. If you like that style there is also the Fuel "Tech" that comes in smaller sizes and has a bit of lip without the brolocks.

    One of my all-time favorites is the SCS "F5". Has a very clean, classic 5 star pattern although I'm curious to see if the design works on a Ranger.

    "Bro-Rivets", lol.

    I agree. What is with all of these fake bead lock wheels?

    My goal will be to fit the same type of wheel and tire on the Ranger that are on my Wranger in the below pic. These are 17x9's with a 305/65 (33x12.5).

    17 x 8.5 is what I have seen. Not sure what the F150 raptor rims are but maybe you could squeeze those in if they are even the same pattern.

    I've looked around a little, but finding 18"x8" are as rare as hen's teeth....Plenty of 20"-24". Maybe more will become available once the Ranger becomes more common.

    Does anyone know the specs of the stock Ranger wheels? Sizes, offset and bolt circle?

    18"x8"--- 6 lug 139.7mm (6 x 5.5"); 93.1mm center hole ---Depends on what wheel/tire your model gets, but the lug pattern and center hole are the same across the board. Not sure about the offset... 55mm ??

    Someone else will chime in soon.
