Exclamation 31s on 06 2.3? Edge wheels? Lift needed? A few questions

My brother is lookin for more aggressive tires for his 06 ranger base model (coil-spring suspension). Just checking out craigslist and hes finding tires here and there to put on the stock wheel. He found a set of EDGE stock wheels hes gonna call about tomorrow too. I found someone selling 31/10.50/15 "mud tires" (im assuming he means all-terrains judging by the pics, or mud terrains).

A few questions...

-how will the 2.3 d-tec run the truck with 31s?
-will the stock EDGE rims fit right on the base model with no backspacing issues or anything like that?
-will the 31/10.50/15 wheels fit on the stock base model rims fine? What about the stock EDGE rims?
-Will the 31s even fit without needing a lift or anything like that?
-Are coil spring spacers safe? Ive been told to steer clear of them. Was looking at them to level the front end of the truck with the rear but id much prefer lift springs. What springs would be needed?

thanks for any help, guys!

It will be pretty sluggish. The gas miles will suck also

Yes I am pretty sure they will they will be a 16" rim so enough room to clear caliper

Stock edge rims are 16"
The 31/10.50/15 will fit the stock 15" rim fine

They may be pretty tight and rub the lower valance

If you regeared the rear end it wouldnt be to bad. I would suggest 4.10 gears.
