95 ranger mud/truck tires?

Anyone know where I can get some truck/mud all terrain tires for the 95 rangers? I've been looking around but can't find anything. My tire size is 235/70r15. I'm sick of these little street shat tires, this truck gets stuck too easly with them. I want some big mud tires for the winter and summer. Anybody know of any good tires for my truck? Thanks alot
Also could I put 235/75R16's on it? or would those fit?

You have a 15" rim stock so you can only put on 15" tires. You can fit 30" tires stock if you have a 95 2wd or 32s or you have a 4wd.

get some 30" a/t's you will be happy with em.

i would try to find a 30x10.50x15LT.

or you could get some 2" lift coils, 2" lift shocks and run 31's or even 32's.

either way your going to rub on the swaybar at full lock, unless you get rims with more backspacing.

the 70 and the 75 are aspect ratios, width/sidewall%.
so a 235/70 is 70% as much sidwall as the width, and a 235/75 has 75% as much sidewall as the width.
so, the 235/75 would be a bit taller.

Nice that makes sense. Thanks for the help, do you think it would look dumb if I put 235/75's on it with the stock suspension?

Not at all. It would help fill the fender a bit.

That's what my 97 came with. They were skinny enough to do great in the winter, but they were tall enough to dig. Pics with 235/75/15 Goodyear Workhorse.
