forgive me for being off topic, but you have the exact same truck as me (except for the 4wd) so i need to ask...are those tires stock size?

i look at my ranger and i swear to god that they look waaaaaaaaay to small for the truck.

The recommended tire size on 2wd rangers is small, my stock tire were
235/75/16's and yes they were way to small.
