Default Larger rims

hey im looking at buying the stock 16'' rims to put on my 2001 ford ranger XLT 4x4, i have the stock 15'' rims on there now and i was wondering if the bigger rims and tires will change my steering or ride that much? thanks

One thing to consider before you make the swap is that tires for 16" wheels are a lot more expensive than tires for 15" wheels

The ride may be a touch rougher, but probably wouldn't be that noticeable...
