    I like the Cobra R's, seen them on a couple of rangers and they looked pretty badass :bigthumb:

    Havn't seen any on explorers though, I bet they'd look nice though :)

    Yea for my Explorer. I'm going for 18's for a couple reasons. First and foremost, 20's and above are so ridiculously expensive, and second I've seen 20's and I've seen 18's on Explorers, and I like the 18's more. I'd like to lower it a bit too, just a couple inches, but as it stands the only way to do it right now is to crank the torsion bars down (and hence have a rough ride) or bag it, and I don't want to and won't bag it.

    my friend has a 97 explorer 4x4 and i don't know anything about ford and he doesn't either. i just know alot of chevy. well anyway he wants to get 18in rims and what offset/backspacing will he need and how can he lower it like 2/2? or 3/3? i have no idea how the suspensions on fords work.
     
  8. Id ont know what look you are looking for here, but i dont think the cobra R rims would be that cool on an explorer. Id stick with some rims meant more for trucks/suvs, like the american racing "slider" i love those rims a lot.

    Hey man weren't you looking for rims a few months ago? I still think you should get some kind of billet wheel, get the Colorado Southpark, I designed them. :)

    But they are expensive CC rims aren't cheap even for 18s.

    Colorado are expensive but very high quality. They are probably the best billet wheel on the market. I would know, I sale them.

    Hey man I know they are quality wheels, I won their design a wheel contest a few years back. I designed the South Park wheel. There was a little write up on it in the May 99 Super Street mag. But dealing with Bill Hancock was a pain in the ass. Also why don't they make a 24 inch billet wheel yet?

    Im not sure why they do not make 24s. If you guys want prcing or anything PM me, I will be glad to answer any questions you have. Yeah I remember when the contest was going on. I like that design Purevil.

    24s or 25s (If they made them) would be about as big as I'd ever get. Lexani says they are going to start making 26s but there is a point where wheels will get so big they will start to look stupid. I think 24 is big enough, 25s may be to big, 26s are STUPID! When people have to start lifting trucks to make them fit or if they look cartoony then its to much. 22, 23, 24 look ok to me. They dont make a 25 yet so I cant say, but those 26s on a Land Cruiser at SEMA are GAY!
