Just lifted my ranger

I just recently lifted my ranger with a 4" Rough Country lift. Does anyone know of some semi decent on/offroad tires that are 31x10.5? Thanks

These look like a good tire and cheap too. I was gonna run these on a wrangler I bought but the cab was to rotten.

see with tires like that there a no name brand which makes replacements more difficult and im guessing they dont have the name in the industry quite like goodyear goodrich or w/e

They are sooo good. They look very agressive and they have very little road noise at all. They handle amazing in the rain i hardly ever spin my tires in the rain unless i want to. I had them aired down to 20 psi and they did good on the rocks. I just drove with them in the snow yesterday an was very pleased by there preformance. I would buy them again any day.

They got Good Year on the side of 'em. Wal Mart and Tire Factory/Discount Tire carries them. 4wheelparts probably carries them now too right alongside the MT/R's.

I just got Cooper Discoverer S/T's and really like them so far. Good wet traction, good snow traction, and just a little hum, but nothing too bad.

my next set of tires are gonna be stockers until i can afford 33" TSL's and a 3 inch BL. i had a set of 31x10.5x15 BFG all terrains on my truck, but wasnt a big fan of them.. i got stuck in 1.5 of snow.. but they were better my stockers.

according to ur picture you have the same body style as me.. 93-97. for reference here is a picture of my 93 with no lift and 31x10.5x15 all terrains wrapped around a set of 91-92 explorer rims. dont mind the dent.. its way more smoothed out now..

BFG A/T. I have them on my F150 and they're a great tire for someone who wants a good road tire with a somewhat aggressive look.
