theres no way a 4x4 would come with that small of tires, that size tire is standard on 2wd 98+

besides I thought all the 4x4 had 16 inch rims from the factory?

my truck is going to be used as a daily commuter that can haul building supplies. I actually like the stance and look of the truck as it is now, factory rims and all. The smaller/narrower tires look just fine to me!

many 4x4 rangers came with 235's however over the years, ford put bigger tires on certain models. the biggest ford put on was 265's.
