Those are WAY too wide for a Ranger no matter how much lift you are running.....you would have to do some major modification......not to mention that you wil have to run atleast a 15.50" wide tire for those wheels

and it will look like super shat....not to mention that you will NOT be able to air down the tire and the excessive tire wear on the out side edges of the tire...

yea...4.10s are fine for 32s.....that's my set up. Probably cheaper to get junkyard axles if you are like 3.73 or 3.55. You can find out your gearing by looking at the door tag or on the rear axle tag. Therangerstation.com has a good tech library.

As I stated in another one of your 10 threads....you will NEVER be able to air those suckers down.

buy some cheap rims that are 5x10. But anyways with 32's you can do 4.10's as I've got 4.10's and 31's and its fine. If you want to go larger though I'd get 4.56's.

imageine the backspace on them rims........its gotta be pretty big in orderto fit in the ranger wheelwell.....plus he'll never be able to flex out, cuz as soon as a little flex happens, he'll be hitting fenders.

holy $%^# i have 15X12 rims and a 14" wide tire and they were a paint to mount not to mention the rims are wide as crap. No way i'd go with a 14" rim and only a 11.5" tire thats retarded IMO. But to each there own. oh and 4.10's will work
