YES!!! I dont think i'd go 20's...More along the lines of 18's and a body lift, with 33-35's....BEFORE YOU MAKE A DECISION ON TIRES, please look at the TRXUS STS all terrains!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sweet *** tires, look like mudders, but they are a/t's!

Btw- you do this and you're going to have a one of a kind ranger....there are defenitly VERY FEW who have a set-up like that!!!

Please say your kidding.... They are about as good off road as Toyo Proxies, There is NOTHING good about those tires along with the Thornbirds


IMO Anything larger then 18's on a ranger that's stock hight or larger, just looks retarted. Just because you can do it, doesn't mean you should. Keep it proportional and clean.... You can put 26" wheels on a Caprice...

Slam it on bags, and have 20" or 22" wheels with the slim tires. It's really up to you. I'm not so fond of either look, more like in between.

One of my friend's has them on his Z71, 38"x14" or something like that, in sand, he may as well have bald tires, he goes no where in 4wd where my good ol Mud Kings get me through everything in 2wd.
The STS are STRICTLY on road, dry pavement tires only, they are just for looks. They failed in every situation, not just mud. Sand, snow, grass, a fallen ice cream cone damn near totaled his truck

The only reason he shouldnt bag his truck is because it is 4x4. If it was 2wd it would be fine but its not. I still ilke the idea of 18s with a 33in tire. it would give him the agressive look. the truck will still have its snow capabilty. its also a unique look bc not many rangers have 18s with a off road tire.

Jey you dont think i should try the 35s on 22s with a body lift or is that much to tuck in...

cuz i already got AALs with stock block and t-bars..so thats like what 2" or so..i think..3" will give me 3" so thats 5"...

or just get BL and go with 33s

You could try it, but on my truck you know i had t-bars maxed out with 3" body and 35's and they rubbed with the fender flares off about 1.5 turns on the wheel in either direction. The rear was fine because i replaced the factory 2" block with a 3" block.

There are actually quite a few trucks around here (I think all of them are HD chevy's) that have 8-10" lifts with 20-22's and 37's.

Don't get tires like that, you have to at least get some semi-aggressive looking A/T's.

The pro-comp extreme all-terrains are what i had in mind, i can't remember what size wheels they are for though.

i vote go bigger than 33's if you want 20's.

the more sidewall the better, to protect them shiny rims.

i would like to see a ranger with 20's and 35's.

not my taste, but it might look alright for a street queen.

personally, i like the look of 17's and a mud tire. remember fyrcom? he had 17's and 33's.

here's an edge on 22's.

is it paidoff? might have a heartattack if it gets stolen and they dont wanna cover your losses like an expensive lift. i have had cars on big wheels with candy paint and custom interiors but they have been paid off and made sense, but if you still have a truck note i think thats wrong. get the truck outta the way and then take care of it. on another note i have seen black 20-22's with a deep polished lip around that would kill it!

If you tell the insurance company what you have done to it, what difference does it make if you still have payments? Why would they not cover what they know you have and show receipts for?

Hel I still make payments on my damn truck and I'm doing a fawking solid-axle swap to it, dovetailed the bed, and swapped the rear end out...and I have an extended warranty until 2008 or 75,000 miles and I only have 37,000 miles.
