Biggest tires on 87 ranger STX

I have a 4 wheel drive STX with the factory lift I was wondering what the biggest tires I can fit under it are. Thanks for your help

noticed your year isnt on here. Imagine its not far off the 93's and such. however if I were to guess, I would say 33" would be MAX, like beating your body panels max

My mistake it's an 87. I'm hoping to get at least 31's under it just for basic off roading just wanted to make sure they'll fit

I have never seen a ranger, regardless of generation, that could not fit 31's stock, albeit stuffed.

I was running 31's with a BL and still had fender issues, but I was running a 15x10 wheel in the front. Little wider out back.

STX High Rider should clear 31's all day stock. Especially on a 15x7.

33's if you had a skinny wheel, but I'd go for 33x10.5. I don't see why those won't clear. Probably a little stuffed though.

I have a 3" BL and 2" in the front and mine will clear 33's on a 15x8. I have shackles in the back and I set it down on some 35's and had a little wiggle room. No flex though.

I'm running 32"s on 15" rims (bout to go 31's soon, these suckers are getting bald)
I've only got bigger coils and expo leafs, never rubbed or flexed it to where i did fender smashing damage.

blah blah blah haha

kidding

but just goes to show you can run 31's stock on asphalt, but to wheel with them properly without harming body panels I would body lift slightly.

I don't mind cutting up the fenders a bit to get the 31s under it
