    I'll agree these aren't for everyone(maybe no one), whether it was the chrome or the size or whatever. I guess I just dared to be different than every other 14, 15 or 16" wheeled Ranchero that you can see when you find one. I still appreciate your comments, whether for or against. Thanks in advance for the replies. Todd

    No hard feelings at at all, I appreciate and respect this forum's members replies. I can take some ribbing, it's all good. Huevos, I didn't mean my response to seem that I was coming down on you, I hope you didn't take it that way. As far as clean goes, these chrome wheels should be infinitely easier to clean and keep looking good compared to being tied down to a polishing rag my previous wheels saddled me with. Todd

    The wheels are Boyd Coddington J5R 20 x 8.5 with a 6mm +offset (4.99" backspace), all four. All 4 tires are General G-max 245/40/20. I wanted to be able to rotate the tires so I stayed with the same size. Todd

    I'm not normally a fan of the larger wheels however on the later Ranchero's I think they look good. I like them, just keep a sharp eye out for potholes!

    Yeah, It'll kill me to see a pothole or some other big object I just can't avoid. Thank you for the positive reply. Todd

    I like the chrome, not big on the size. I think 17 or 18's would have been fine for a bigger rim.

    Don't be surprised if you get searched if you get pulled over by a cop.
    Those things are the signature of the D-boys and wanna be Wiggers.
