you might wanna check the backspacing, but i remember something about rangers and jeeps were near identical when it came to wheels. im pretty sure you could fit 30s on those if the backspacing is right

it should be stock, which i believe is close to 3.75 inches or 4 inches, id double check that. btw im running 30s on stock 15x7s with no lift, i dont rub at all, except on my swaybar, thats another story though

There was a guy on TRS with some newer Cadillac rims on his 2wd Ranger. Looked sweet.

Here's a link on how to measure everything...

I have a 93 STX that have the stock wheels ( 15x7 ) with tire size 31x10.50R15LT all around. Am I correct in thinking the 31 is the height of the tire? If so, they have been working fine with no rubbing for several years.
