    Just bought a set of Black Rhino wheels from Discount Tire Direct. According to DiscountTire they fit the Ranger. However when they arrived there was no included rings so I called customer service. Was told Black Rhino doesn't make rings that will work on the Ranger. Now I was under the impression that you must have centering rings. What is everyone's opinion on this?

    As long as the hub diameter of the wheels is equal-to or greater-than the hub diameter on the truck, there shouldn't be any issue. Most aftermarket wheels are 'lugcentric' and rely on conical lug nuts for centering. I don't foresee any issues with it.

    Same here. My Fuel wheels came with hub centric rings that didn't fit my hub. Mounted them without them and no problems so far.
