Default I Need Another Opinion

I am planning to put 255/70/R16 on my factory rims. I have a 2005 XL Ford Ranger with stock supension. Should I run into any problems with these? Or should i go bigger?

Check out the "What Tire fits" sticky in this forum but I think you will be fine.

You shouldnt have any problems with 255's, theres other stock rangers on here with 265's.

I think its a matter of preference of what you want on it size/width and how much more gas you will use
