Default 89 Ranger tire and wheel question?

Hello I'm pretty new here but more new when it comes to wheels and tires. I have an 89 ranger right now with the 275/35/15's on. I wanna jump up too a 31/10.5/15 I don't wanna go overly big up too a 33. I do plan to run a 3" body lift so it should be no big deal. My question being is what size wheel would I need, I plan on gettin a new set of the cragar softies would a 15x8 be fine with a 10.5 tire? Or should I run a bigger wheel like a 10" wide? Thanks for any help given

Default Re: 89 Ranger tire and wheel question?

15x8 would be fine, hell a 15x7 would be good too. I originally had 31"x10.5" on my 15x7 Alcoa's. Then when I bumped up to a 32"x11.5", I got a 15"x8" wheel

I had 31's on my '88 BII with just a 2" lift block in the rear and those stupid turn in coil spring boosters. So youre ranger with a 3" body lift should have no problem fitting 31's.

Do you remember Vern's old truck? the white and blue '89 ranger. He had a 3"-4" suspension lift on his with 32"x11.5" tires and at full lock his tires rubbed the radius arms. I think it was just due to backspacing of the wheels he had on it.
