    These are the wheels I decided to go with what do you guys think? Wheels are 16x8. 0 offset and 4.5” backspacing. Tires are 285/75-16.

    Looks great, I am seeing that you took off the lower air dam? How hard was that? I presume I will have to do the same when my new wheels and tires go on Thursday.

    There is an ugly gap if you totally remove the air dam. I did give it a major trim though. It’s not very difficult to remove 8-10 bolts.

    The wheels look fantastic! Love it.

    Question on the air dam- what did you use to cut it? And I assume you took it off to do the trimming? I was just about to tackle this little modification this afternoon, so figured I’d ask somebody who has done it!
    Thanks.

    Yes I removed it to do the cutting. I used a jig saw with a wood cutting blade. I did put tape on the bottom of the saw to prevent the air dam from getting scratched. The is an obvious step in the dam. I just free hand cut it about 3/8 of and inch below that step. I cleaned it up with an angle grinder and sanding block. When reinstalling the air dam start with the 2 most outer screws they were difficult to get started. I had to loosen the the other panel that shares the same bolt hole as the air dam on both sides to get the bolts back in properly, it is only one other bolt and you only need to loosen it not remove it (last photo). They are all 10mm bolts, it’s really not that difficult.

    I had no clue that we can fit 16" wheels on our Rangers. I only see 17" and larger wheels... stock or aftermarket...

    Looks sweet, did you have to use any spacers or do the rims and tires fit without any rubbing? And what level do you have?

    Ready Lift 3” leveling kit. No wheel spacers, front and rear crash bars removed. Front air dam needs to be trimmed also. Either just the corners or like I did above.
