Angry American Racing Torq-Thrust II 505 Series Wheels - Which Combo?

I think that I'm gonna get a 1992 Ford Ranger and I want to get some cool wheels for it.I really like those American Racing Torq-Thrust II Wheels that you can get from Jeg's.They're featured in their catalog and online.I'll paste the link below.Anyway..I'm wanting to do 2 things,but of course I can only do 1.

I either want a set of 2 15X6"s and 2 15X8"s..I'll put the 6's on the front and the 8's on the back.Then..I'll have a little more bite if I ever take my Ranger to the trip when I stick in that 302 .

Or..I want to just get a set of 15X8"s and have the same size all-around.Then,I can rotate them.But..It won't have that 'racing' stance.

I think that I'll just go with the 15X8's.What do you guys think?

I can just go with a set of 15X10"s.But..I don't know how far they'll stick out of the fenders on the Ranger ??? .

American Racing wheels can be purchased with any offset built in, should you have a clearance problem.

Personally i would put the same size tire and rims all the way around on a truck. 15x8's would be cool. The TT II's are a beautiful wheel but don't forget about the constant upkeep. Polished aluminum wheels need to be polished and protected regularly. Otherwise they start oxidizing which looks like ****. I have TT II's on my 65 and love them but the car is garaged making it easier to keep the mags in great shape. Just an opinon...
