If you have the stock 14" rims, the recommended tire size is 225/70R14. It's kind of an obscure tire size to find. I do pretty much the same thing with my ranger and have found a set of Cooper Discoverer tires work pretty damn well.

I don't want to make the choice harder or anything but check out uniroyal liberators. They are a great tire and all I ran on my old 94 and a few other guys and I in my shop swear by them. Great all around tire.
