As much as the Ranger looked good stock, the bug bit and I had to get some new rims.  Wen with an old school look, and kept stock 225/70/15 tire size.  Lots of sidewall and with 30 psi, gives a real nice ride.

Yes I remember the look... think it was a popular Cragar that had a similar spoke shape and layout. Not bad on a Ranger either evidently!

Yeah, I grew up in the early 60's and had Cragers on my first new car, 64 Ford Falcon Sprint.  If I remember correctly they were around $40 bucks each...not a lot, unless your making $1.25 an hour pumping gas part time.  We has Rose Auto, which had a lay-a-way plan for us kids.
These are almost identical to the American Racing Torque Thrust, exept their Vision, and only ran $90.00 each, free shipping.
Funny, but "American Racing Torque Thrust Wheels" are made in China, as are these...probably made in the same foundry.

Your Ranger looks great with thoses wheels. I also grew up in the 60's & remember most of the muscle cars had the 5 spoke Cragar wheels. My oldest brother had them on his 69 GTO.
