gear issue

if i was to put 4.10's in a 7.5 rear end on my ranger what would be the best sized tire cuz i have a automatic and i do tend to redline the rpm.... not good but i need the best size tire to keep from blowing the transmission again...

any ideas?

the tires i was looking at just now i think would work their medalist mud king xt tires 33x12.50r15 but their exact tire diameter (in) is 32.40 and the exact section width (in) is 12.30 for 139$ a piece does that sound like the best thing to do?
