ok....ive gt an AWSOME IDEA....im goin to put sum Mitsubishi Starion rims on my ranger......the pic of my ranger below is the day i had bought it....so....obviously its been cleaned up....[my father and i restore classic cars of all and any sort....my dad paints the cars/trucks himself] i cleaned up the craiger rims tht are on the truck...thy were covered in brake dust....the tires are brand new....however...i HATE craiger rims....especially these....sooooo....as a partial payment of a job my dad did...we got TONS of parts to the mitsubishi satrion / dodge conquest cars.....[the dodge and mitsubishi are the same].....

heres my truck the day i bought it:

[sum1 "broke-into" the truck the nite before the guy sold it to me....and "stole" the entire stereo EXCEPT the deck.....LIES...b/c the window he gave me the ws supposed to be "broken" ws handed to me as a "replacement"...but was tinted jus like the others.....]

Welcome to the site! Make sure to test fit them before you paint them so you don't go through all that trouble only to find out the lug patterns are different, or the rim hits the caliper. If that checks out though, put those rims on there. With the paint job it should make for a sweet looking Ranger
