Default What size tire should i get???

hey everyone i am about to be ordering some new tires and wheels for the ranger but i have a question..should i go with 33s or 32s with a 3in body lift? i do go to the sand dunes pretty often and would like to have the same flex with no problems.. and could yall show me some pictures of trucks that have 33s and 32s on a 3in body lift so i can see the difference thanks...

I say 32's.
Heres when I had a 3 inch body with 33's. They look a little too snug for me.

you have coils though....you started out 3" lower anyway. 4x4's and torsion bar 2wds can fit 32's STOCK. Your pic is equivilent to 3" BL and 35's on a 4x4 with the amount of stuff those 32's have on yours. Your post is invalid.






For 3" bodylift on 98+ 4x4, generally the rule of thumb is 33x12.50 on 15x8's.

Go with 33's. I'm running 33x11.50's with only a t-bar crank and I have no issues.
