right in the same section you posted this in:

http://www.fordrangerforum.com/wheel...tire-size.html

unless you plan on a BL anytime soon, I personally would not go over a 32. 33s on a non BL truck just do not look right and they looked stuffed. 32s will fit fine with no rub with a slight T-Bar crank. I run 31s on mine and think they look just right.

Ranger with 32s andT-bar crank:

Ranger with 31s no T-bar crank(my Ranger):

Ive done decided that for you too...lol.

Get BFG A/T KOs. As you can see they are on both my truck and Tom's truck. by far the best tire that I have ever owned. i have had mine for 1 1/2 years now and Im still at half tread with 30k miles on them or more. They have excellent road manners (they are an All Terrain), yet aggressive for the off roading. They have taken me through 6"-11" of snow, 2' of muddy water holes, sugary sand, etc...

The only downfall is due to the aggressive tread pattern, they do ride a little stiffer and they do get louder as they wear, but that's it. They are not even loud anyways. I paid $633 out the door for mine istalled at the local tire dealer.



If you dont like the price tag, get General Grabber ATs. They have a 90% identical tread pattern and run a little cheaper:
