I also like 15" wheels with bigger "balloon" tires. I might be wrong, but I think they help to absorb the shock on rougher roads and create a very "sure footed" feeling. I personally like the Coopers with the white lettering that create a more vintage look. But if that is not your style, Pro Comp makes other wheels, all at a very good price.

For sure! the 60 profile tires im running now ride very rough. Ive got a set of ‘01 jeep wrangler wheels , they look ok on the truck. I havent ran them in several years.

Thanks all of you for such great information for a newbie on wheels! I took your advice and I ended up getting ranger wheels to avoid the headache.
Although I know 15's are also getting harder to find, for the price I paid ($60) for all 4 original ranger wheels, it seemed worth it. I can still find a decent enough selection of 15's so I should be OK for awhile!
