If your Ford had a Matthew McConaughey, it would be a Lincoln

New wheels on Project Colony Ship.

Turns out 2wd Ford Ranger wheels & tires are the same size as the police package setup for this chassis.


All total the setup cost me $150, tires are decent and will last until i decide on a final setup. They did need some painting.

Swapping the wheels, i did make an unpleasant discovery.


Apparently despite extended studs and 3/4" of spacers the wheels still didn’t clear the front dust caps. So they just left them off. I now need to get replacements and repack at least the outer bearings. I also need to get the right lug nuts to hold the hubcaps(they are only temporarily on for the pics), and decide if i am cutting or replacing the extended front studs as the hubcaps don’t fit over them.
