What size tire can I safely install on my 8" wide rims ? I have found possibly 235/60/15 were on the stock Ranger and that 225or 235/70/15 may be a better choice. I have no idea. Anyone have any info on 8" wide wheels and tires . Backspace is 4 1/4" . Do I need to use spacers ?
Don't know what you are exactly asking but all the 235 tires mentioned can be mounted on a 15x8 safely. The 225/70 you technically could get away it too
