Default Maximum size tires can I get?

Sorry for such a stupid question, I know there are chart's but I wasn't sure how to read it honnestly. This is my first car, I'm 16. Still have my permit gotta wait 6 months to get my provisional's. I just recently bought a 1999 ford ranger V6 black extended cab 2WD.

The vehicle diesctiption paper I have on the truck says. P205/75RX14 BSW A/S tires. XL 126" wheel base.

So my question is how can I tell what size tires I can get for my truck? How do I tell? I would much rather learn how to tell, then someone just telling me the answer. I looked at the chart's but I can't figure out how to read them.

Here's a picture of the truck. I got it for $2550 inspected.

Measure the width of your rim to see if its 7 inches or 8. you would fit under the first two I believe

As long as it has the same bolt pattern you're good, You should be able to run 14-16 rims, But that's a should, I don't know 100% about 16's
