Default Your opinion matters

With a rwd 2wd xlt 01' ranger, upgraded to a 5.0 v8, what would be the recommended tire size, stagger, and/or psi? I'm looking for a recommended tire for everyday driving on fairly even paved roads, no offroading in my baby.

Stock 15's

----------

And somewhat off topic, would filling the spare tire with sandbags or perhaps putting a weight where the spare should be help prevent fish tailing or burnouts?

I'm not too sure I want to really lift it, I kind of like where it's at, give or take a couple inches. Should I put like 265's in the back and 235-245's in the front? I have 215's on it now and going to 265's would lift it 2 inches anyway.

I'm curious if I should put taller tires in the front for better handling, and/or wider tires in the back to help with the light bed fishtaling

yeah that would probably be fine...it shouldn't have any traction problem with those size tires
