I am looking for 18" rims that will work well on my Ford Ranger. Eventually, I want to put 31" tires on these rims and install them on my truck. Does anyone know of some 18" rims that will work in this situation?

Assuming your 31" tire will be similar to 265/65R18, you would be looking for rim 7.5-9.5" wide.

Good luck finding anything OEM that doesn't require spacers. If you go aftermarket, tirerack gives you ~30 choices; and you can go from there.

Well, I had to get something a little sooner than later. So, for now, I bought the Falken Wildpeak A/T3W.

I did see some Dodge Challenger rims that I would like to get. The bolt pattern is the same, but I need to get more information on offset and etc.

I was wrong these Challenger rims are 20" in diameter.

You can fit 20's but you will have less sidewall. I'd go with some 18's like american racing and vision wheels.

Mustang rims work w 1” spacers. Mine are 18x9 rims. Got em on craigslist for $500 with practically brand new tires. Mine are Bullitt which look like TorqThrusts. Black spoke machined rims.
