Default Need suggestions on purchasing some new tires....first post

Hey all i picked up a 2000 Ranger XLT 2wd with 5spd tranny and im loving it coming from a pathfinder and a silverado.... only thing i dislike is the girly tires i got on it... Its full stock suspension and by the looks of it only 15 inch rims, any driving i do is city, on occasion when im bored ill hit up a dirt road but nothing to fancy. Looking for some that will make my truck look meaner. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
