Default how much lift for bg meats 2nd gen



my boss gave me a set of 5 H2 wheels and tires they are brand new and still have nubs on them they are bfg all terrins.

they are 315 tire which is a 32? or 33? im wondering i know i can fit 31's with 3inches of lift without rubbing but idk about bigger.

so anyone with a 2nd or 1st gen ranger with tires 315 circumference could you post a pic or/and tell me what you have? thanks im thinking about getting a 6 or 8in lift im not decided yet

Whats the entire number? 315 is the section width in millimeters. Thats a 12.5" wide tire, so you are look at either a 33x12.5 or a 35x12.5 tire, most likely a 35 because I think the 33s are 305/65R17.

Oh and those wheels will not fit on the ranger. Wrong bolt pattern.

I would check into your gearing before doing all that work, lift and all. It would make no sense if you got 3.55 or 3.73 and running those big bastards and having a turd for a truck. Maybe you could sell them and buy a smaller tire...???
