Default What size tires should I get with 3 inch body lift

I plan on getting a 3 inch body lift for my 2000 Ranger and I was wondering what size tires would look best on it and what just in general would look best. Right now I have 16 inch rims and my tires are stock so they arent that big and would not look well with a 3 inch lift at all. Thanks for any opinions!

267/75/16 = 31" tire will look alright I run these with my 3" lift

285/75/16 would be what a 32" tire would be and would look best

I ran the 265/75/16s before doing my SAS and it looked well proportioned to the wheel openings.

If you have a 4x4 ,you can already fit 31s on your truck
So if you install a 3" lift ,33" tires would look good
(Be sure your diff gear can handle the tire change ,you need at least 3:73 ,but 4:10 would be better)

Mine is 2WD. And thanks for the help so far. Didn't want to base my decision just off google images!

So would 16" wheels or 18" wheels look best on 32" tires? Just trying to get a general idea of what everyone thinks.

----------

And also I know getting 32" tires on my 2000 truck will screw up my speedometer. Is there any way that I will be able to fix this difference between my speedometer and actual speed? My dad has a tuner but I highly doubt it will be able to do anything to my 2000 Ranger.

I think that Nitto makes a 33/12.5R18. I think that 33s look the best with a BL. But if you are 2wd why don't you just get a spindle lift and some rear lift shackles?

What's the difference between a body lift and a spindle lift with rear lift shackles?
