    Hi I've just purchased a 2012 4x2 cab chassis. Great vehicle and I like how it doesn't have all the bells and whistles, just what I need.

    However, it does look a bit plain in the wheels department. I've done some googling but can't find an answer, hopefully someone here can help.

    Would 18" radius, 8" wide wheels fit on the Ranger or would that cause me to have to alter the suspension? I understand it might come down to what tyres i put on as well.

    Really I'm asking how much room I have to play with before the things start rubbing or hitting.

    Is it a cab and chassis truck? As in cab with no bed? I don't know how similar the Australian and Latin America Rangers are, but I have a crewcab Ranger with the stock 15''x7'' wheels and 31''x10.5'' AT tires and they fit fine in the front and rear with no rubbing. I've seen stock 4x2 Rangers like mine with up to 33'' tires. They rub on full turns, so a proper offset wheel would be necessary.

    Doing a quick google search, I found this: Stock 2012 Ranger with 18''s.

    Post pic of the truck if you can...
