2wd tires

I took these for a member on another forum. He wanted pics of different tires. He has a body lift. so, I swapped my old tires in and took the pics jacked 3" off the ground. I thought I would post them here since I havent shown any pics of my Ranger.

The first three are my truck as it sits today 30x9,5 procomps on 15x8. The rest are the old tires 29x11.50 superswamper ssr's on 15x10 jacked up 3".

The old ones are going back on and im lifting the front 2-3". After throwing them on I thought "my truck looks wimpy with the new rim/tires".

I agree those swampers are bad. The 15x10s really make them stick out.

Is that only a 3" BL with 33's on 15X10's?

In Canada, that much wheel outside gets you nailed by the cops every time.

yup, stock jack takes forever to get the truck up. I was going to take it off the jack and take pics. but, the stock wrench wasnt deep enough to get to the lugs on the 15x10.

I just bought the Procomps about 3 months ago. I dont care what my girl says.... Im lifting it and throwing the Swampers back on FTW!!!

no lift. jacked up 3 inches and 29x11.50. Hawaii law doesnt allow it, but they're pretty lax about it, considering a good portion of the LE here ride around in lifted Toyotas for their daily drivers.

i would never buy those radial swampers. i know a guy thats had several sets, they break belts and make HUGE bubbles in the tires, the last one a friend of mine had was the size of a football! plus once the belts break super swamper wont send you another tire no matter how new. buy bias ply tires only when it comes to super swamper

That likely a rare incident that could happen to any tire. I had them for on for 3 years and they could likely go another 2-3 years.

I like the width of the swamper, but those look almost like bologna skins compared to the new tires.
