Default What is the biggest possible tire I can fit...

Hey guys I have an '89 ranger custom 2wd. The tires I got on it now are like racing slicks and I'm looking for a thicker, heavier tread tire. I don't have any lift or anything...its just stock. The rims I have are stock 15's so I was wondering how big of a tire I could fit on it. And if so...what brand or kind of tire would you recommend. Thanks!

i wouldnt go any bigger than a 31 man on that truck, you dont want them to look stuffed as hell either. go with BFG A/T

You got 15's so your in good shape for staying on the cheaper side. The BFG's like Dixie said are always a safe bet and look great! 31's will look perfect

Yeah, Thats why I said it may help him out. I thought maybe based on rim size and 2wd it may be a close comparison to the 93-97 series 2wd
