Default stop the TIRE SIZE THREADS!!

Ok, I'm sick of people posting threads titled "what size tires fit my truck? or will XXX size tires fit? or i want a lift, will XXX size tires fit my truck? or what will fit my 19XX Ranger, or can i put 33's on a stock ranger? (without telling us what year or type ranger it is)

My point is, use the search feature or read the sticky titled "chart of tire sizes"

the next person that has a thread that starts "what size tire....
i'm gonna call them an idiot.

Pretty sure mods can issue warnings for that, no need for you to stress over it, its bad for your health!

Most people that do that are new to internet forums in general, not just rangers. I agree it gets repetitive to US but to the new person who's never used a forum before, it is new and unknown.

Warnings/Infractions are for detrimental posts with ill intent, such as insulting another member. Asking a "dumb question" or anything similar does not warrant a warning.

Exactly.

If the tire size questions annoy you, there are four viable things you can do:

1) Advising the individual to make a signature, and link them here: http://www.fordrangerforum.com/profi...=editsignature
2) Linking the person to the tire size chart: http://www.fordrangerforum.com/wheel...tire-size.html
3) Answering their question accurately.
OR
4) Ignore the thread

You can point the person in the direction of the search button.
It is up to them to use it.

Not lazy man, some people like me have never been on this type of forum. It has helped me and there has been alot of people that were nice enough to point me in the right direction and so forth. I learned alot on this forum and everyone on here helped me save money by not going to a mechanic and showing me the do it yourself way. I would like to think everyone joined the forum to help each other out and not to cut each other down.
