I have looked at the chart, and as it appears I me, it more a chart of tire size that you CAN put on a ranger than what you SHOULD. I ran 33x12.50 maxxis big horns, with 2 inches of lift. As the chart says. But should you run that size tire? No. Not at all. That chart is more for what can fit, or for wheeling. Not a dd. power loss and gearing adjustment is not accounted for for uphill and highway driving. Yes, they do fit, and rather nicely and it is an amazing chart for tire shopping, but my question was more for dd as in power loss and gearing reduction, as well as ply rating for rotational weight.
