I don't know what size rims you have but I think that the Pro Comp Xtreme A/T's will be my next purchase. I have a buddy that has 35's on his F250 and loves them, he's on his 2nd set now.

How about Mickey Thompson classic locks in black? Always one of my favorite wheels

I like the Classic locks better just because it isn't the solid black. I think a little chrome helps break up all the black. But they are another $100 for the set over the Eagle 185's

if you're looking for a 16, they don't make the classic locks in black and in our bolt pattern in that size anyway. you have to stick with a 15 for black classic locks on a ranger unfortunately.

I'm probably going to get 15's regardless, tires are cheaper that way

my buddy had these on his duramax. they were the worst tire he probably ever had. he went through two sets because they wore terrible and he barely got 20k out of them and he sold the second set off because the same issue. im pretty sure his first set was warrantied as well.

Strange, my buddy said he got 40K+ out of those tires.. Was your friend aligned properly? Did he do a lot of off roading?

It doesn't really matter anyway, I don't think that they make a 33" tire with a wheel height of 15" and it looks like those are the size rims the 01RangerEdge is going to go with...

The thing about the DuraTracs is that I can only get them in a 31 or 33.

Also, it has a few mixed reviews, plus all the crap Justin just went through makes me not want to buy them

Can't go wrong with BFG A/Ts and classic II's IMO.

Polishing wheels would annoy me over time, my 77 already gets ignored too much

i literally just purchased a set of 31" BFG a/t online for $730.xx...that's shipped too my door. had them installed for $150... I have a level II so they're the stock tires. there aren't enough good things i can say about them. personally haven't ever had a set of duratracs but i hear good things about those also. shop around online and have them installed. its wayy more cost effective than to spend $1200 for les schwabb to order them.

I think if your truck is stock height with a crank the most you can fit is a 32" tire....you dont want to be stuffed unless you pound pavement year-around.personally I dont like my wheels hitting my fenders when im off pavement. I'd go with 31's...ill put up a picture or two with my new 31's when i get a chance

Jason (DangerRanger91) had 285/75/16s on his with a t bar crank before he got a body lift. I think it drove fine for him, not sure if he took it off road much though.

I didn't like the BFG A/T's had them on a couple of vehicles and they wore great did good in the snow, but as far as I'm concerned suck offroad. I would take a set of cooper discoverer s/t's over them any day.

I also ran 285/75R16's on my stock truck. It rubbed the flares flexed out and the frame due to stock rims. With cranked bars and an AAL it no longer rubbed the body.

After browsing old threads I should be fine with the 32x11.5's if I crank my tbars a little more.

I'm really considering the Eagle 185's. I'm not convinced going all black with wheels will look that great, I think a little chrome will help break up the black

I hate to suggest it, because I want to be the first.... but check out the level 8 strike 5 wheels. hole style wheels are SOOO common. a little 5 spoke action never hurt anyone.
