Default 215/65/15??? Will these work?

I have a 1991 ranger 2wd and it has 235/75/15's on it but it sits like a 4wd with them...i read that a 215/65/15 is the same as the factroy 14" tire size when it comes to overall height and my speedo will be the same as it would with the factory 14's. Does anyone have a pic of their 2wd ranger with 15x7" wheels that arent huge tires...it is a 2wd truck and would like to keep it looking like one. Thanks! Info please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nah, i actually like how yours sits with those tires. It does look a little like a 4x4, but thats only because the tires are tucked in the wheel wells more than mine. the smaller tires would make it look like theres more of a gap between the tire and wheel wheel well, like mine. you may loose an inch of ground clearance, but even so, depending on your suspensions sag, it could look the same with the smaller tires as well
