Default Running 30x9.5x15s on a 2.3 4cyl manual?

Im sure this has been covered but would i loose
Torque and power by putting 30x9.5x15s on a 1994 2.3
4 cyl manual trans. And how about acceleration? Also would i need
Spacers? I have no lift... Looking to get a beefier look.
Any answers appreciated. Btw im trying not to
Kill my gas milage completely.

My step dad has 31's on his 1994 ranger 4 cyl., bogs it down a little, not much though.

really just depends what kind of gears you have, 4.10s get my 32s going just fine

I've had 31s stock on my 97 with 3.73 and 4.10. But I have auto. You'll be fine. 4.10 is a better gear but if you have 3.73 you'll be good
