Post 2011 4x4 XLT on 33's stock?

I know that there are lists of tire size that will work, but what i am wondering is if anyone has put 31's, 32's or 33's on a stock 4x4 xlt newer model ranger. i am looking at replacing my stock tires because they suck.

Does anyone have any photos of their truck, or somone elses truck with bigger tires stock, or t bar crank? I dont want a body lift, i am getting a superlift in the spring, but i would like some tires now.

There was a member who did it recently. You can fit a 33x10.5 on there fine but a 12.5" wide tire will rub.

I have the exact same question, pics will be appreciated. Even better if the pic shows 31īs BFG KM2 tires on stock ranger.
:)

I'm currently running 10.50's on stock set up but have run 12.50's. I trimmed a little off but rubbed. Granted the 12.50's were aftermarket Micky Thompson wheels. 1st pic is current, 2nd pic is 12.50's and 3rd pic is 31x10.50 on stock wheels.

Never crashed but I did get hit by a feed truck and damaged the bed.

I ran 34 9.00 16 on a cranked ifs 2008 ranger. It rubbed on off camber situations, but cleared during normal driving. Hope this helped

Dont have any pictures. But I ran 33x12.5R15 on the stock 15x7 wheels on my 2011 Ranger Sport. Had no issues. I just cranked the torsion bars.

i really dont know how some people can do this but my truck couldnt? i had my 33x12.5x15 mt/r-k on 15x8 rims with 4" backspacing before i put on the body lift and i rubbed like a **** on everything with the t-bars maxed and shackles on the rear. the newer trucks sit lower and the stock wheels place the tires closer in to the frame but there was no issues? i find that hard to believe.... i would love to see this in person because i keep hearing it works

I have a 06 Ranger fx4 and run 265/75/r16 Hankook Dynapro ATM with stock suspension (no torsion crank) with only my front left tire rubbing a little on a very small plastic piece that lined the wheel well when turning full left (like popping a U-turn). I cut the little piece off and now I have no rubbing at all. I do experience a little when trailing and the truck is at full flex. I have a buddy who had 285/75/r16 on stock ranger but he cranked his torsion bar which gave it a very rough ride.

I am running 33x12.50 Goodyear Duratracs on my truck. I had to trim the wheel well splash-guard out some and they do rub on tight turns. normal driving is fine though. Here's some pics.
