17" Wheels

Post #1 by StarDiero75 » Sun Dec 08, 2019 12:43 pm

Howdy guys,

I'm looking at putting 17" rims on the Ranchero. 17" gives me tires choices at decent prices. I wanna keep the same tire diameter at 25.9". Does anyone have pictures of running 17" rims on your cars? I want to see what they look like in the wheel wells before i commit to anything

Thanks,
Ryan

I don't have any pics of that or recall having seen 17" on a Ranchero but I believe that would look pretty awesome. Kind of a slot car look. I checked some specs and that could be a 225 50 r17 for 25.9" diameter. Hope someone posts some pics.

Heres a link to the site. I think it'd be sick. I like the Magnum 500 style, thats my dream rim for my car.

Oh yeah that is nice. Those would look aggressive with that low profile rubber. Look fast just sitting still.
