New-bie

sup my names nik im 17 and i just bought a white 1998 ford ranger xlt ...im new to the truck scene so just starting to learn about them. im going to focus more on my interior ..it needs to be redone/ im getting seat covers /a shifter ***/ new mirrors ,and floor mats and a new sterio deck and speakers. for the motor its all stock so im not really worried just maybe intake and maybe exust its a v6 so its pretty loud already just doesnt sound that clean . for the rims and tires i would like to get black rims with some bigger profile tires. ( first noob question :) ) will getting bigger tire thread and raising it a little bit effect my mpg at all??? and what is the stock mpg of a 98 ranger?? lol any ideas for it if you had a clean work sheet for a car and could do stuff to it what would ur advice be for me ?? thanks

Welcome. Bigger tires=worse mpg. If you are not going to lift it I say 31s are perfect. They arnt that big so you shouldn't notice any drop in mpgs. Got any pics of the truck?

Welcome! Bigger tires and lifting it will definitely hurt your fuel mileage... not likely a whole lot though!
