That doesn't help me in making my decision. She has been on me to put my wheels on her truck since we bought it

I prefer the sport trac wheels. If she likes the ranger wheels I'd go for it. I think it's a win win.

The two sets of wheels are on the wrong trucks - Swap they'll both look better.

I would swap wheels with your wife's Sport Trac, but I might be biased a little.

I like the truck's wheels. I could see where they would be a bit more intensive in cleaning them.

Mike I think you convinced me to change them. What brand are your wheels? Are you running 31x10.50

The wheels on my truck are coated with alumaclear soap and water is all I need to shine mine up
