Question Largest tires I can fit on a stock 1991 ranger?

Hey, I was wondering what is the largest tire size I can fit on my 1991 XLT? I dont want it rubbing so i guess largest tire size without rub. I want this thing to sit higher so I figured ill start with wheels and tires and move on to lift and all that, i know it might seem kind of backwards but oh well. Really need the advice and help, im just now really delving into trucks and im finding that i love them and i love my little ranger but lets make it a little less little haha. Thanks for the help, I need it

By the way the current Wheel size is 15 inch. If you can recommend a brand of tires that'd be great too.

Thats funny i was just looking at your truck on another post, that thing is beautiful. Well im hoping i can run about 31's ive read around and people are saying that stock 91 rangers can run 31's no problemo. Its not a huge deal since i want to do a 4 inch suspension lift and 3 on the body but it would be nice if i could just do tires first just to have it sit up a tad more. I mean im 6'0 and i have to sit down before getting in the truck

That seems like a good size, Im so lost on tires though. I looked it up and all but damn im a tire noob. The 15 stands for wheel size correct? I dont know what any of it stands for really..Teach me?
