It should fit fine. Don't quote me on it but I'm pretty sure that's what size my spare is from the factory.

the 2010 rangers come with a full size spare. according to the brochure that size tire should be under there already.

Do they all? I thought you could still get a compact spare in 2010.

I thought the stock tire size was 245 - ** - 16".. It is on my truck. I'd have to look to be sure but I think I have a 255 or 265 under mine..

They switched from 245/75/16 @ some point to 255/70/16. it's basically the same size tire, or they are considered as "plus zero" size tires in comparison. The side wall height is a percentage aspect of the tread width (sidewall height is 60% of the tread width in the latter example), so 65% of 245mm is similar to 60% of 255mm.

And yes, I also have a full size (245/75/16) spare under my truck. It will fit.

Also, might be a good time to mention for people to check the air in their spares. I never had mine down (thank you BF Goodrich A/T's) and the spare had like 6 psi. Wouldn't have done a whole hell of a lot of good.
