Default 2000 Ford Ranger Tires?

I'm gonna be putting a 3" body lift on my 2000 Ford Ranger XLT.

I don't know much about tires, but I'm thinking of 31-32" tires. Would I be able to use the same wheels I have? Can anyone link me to some specific tires that they have or think would look good? I will NOT be offroading at all, so no need for super swampers or anything like that.

Please don't answers if you're just going to link me to or something lke that.
I'm putting a body lift for appearance. I don't like how my truck looks, and I've seen many pictures of trucks with just body lifts (not sus) and it looks fine. I was told not to bother with a sus lift if I'm not going to offroad at all. My truck has a v6 so I'm not worried about the engine.

I don't know anything about tires either but I had to get new ones so I went to Discount tires. They were sooooo helpful and nice and got me what I needed. I recommend going there and getting an expert opinion

With a 3" Body lift, I personally feel the 32X11.5/15 tires look great. 33's will fit too, and look equally great.

I have the 31X10.5/15 BFG's on my 2000 with no lift, and I personally think it looks great. But I will likely upgrade to a 3" body lift and a 4" suspension lift with 35's the next time around... That just looks sweet!

As for tires, I would highly recommend the BFGoodrich All-Terrain A/T KO series of tires. They have amazing traction on all surfaces and look pretty damn good too.

Default my 2000 2wd w/ 3"BL

i had stock 15's with 31x10.50R15 maxxis buckshot mudders, now i run a 33x12.5R15 on a steel 15x8 rim. Just a body lift nothing else.i had 35's on it at one point as well.

33s should be fine, may have to do some fender trimming. I say upgrade to some 15x8s though. Also after the BL, you may want to look into getting some gap guards to cover the 3" gap that you will have between your bed and frame rails.
