Default Help with tire choice?

I Have a 99 ranger, 3" lift and got 30x9.50 Pathfinder Sport SAT's and was looking to get some new tires, I'm thinking Mastercraft MXT's or general grabbers, but don't know too much about them, would I clear 33's with my 3" lift or should I just get 32's, open to any tire suggestion, would really appreciate the feedback, thanks

You can clear up to 33x12.5s with a bodylift. However, you may have to crank the tbars a bit, depending on how much sag you have up front. As far as tire suggestions, what are you looking for? All terrain? Mud terrain? Do you offroad? Do a lot of highway driving?

He can only crank them if he has them. Judging by his avatar pic, he does not.

Right but is he 2 or 4wd? If his avatar is of his truck with the 30's and 3" lift then I would think he has a 2nd xlt.

I have the general grabber AT2's and I recommend them. Good price, last long, and have done well with every terrain I have thrown at them.

Wow, your right. I saw 99 and 3" and assumed 4x4/body lift. (Bodylifts been on my mind lately Lol. ) 99 is pre edge/sport/trail head, so he doesn't have tbars. Everybody disregard my initial post. Haha. Op, you might be cutting it close with 33's with only 3" of lift on a coil spring truck.

Kind of sounding like an all terrain would would fit your needs. There's a lot of choices out there; bfg A/T, cooper A/t3, general grabber, wild country xtx, just to name a few. Try doing a quick search in the wheels and tires section to get a feel for what you may like. Research is gonna be your friend here. I personally run Hankook Dynapro A/T Ms and absolutely love them.

My Son is in OK working pipeline. He has the Dynapros on a Dodge 3500 dually 4x4. He said they are very grippy in snow.

My Dynapros (265/75/16) ran about $700, mounted and balanced, from discount.
