How low?

I've got 275/60R15's on my chevy and it's a pretty large tire. Put 'em on the back of a stock coilspring 2wd 01 ranger and it was a pretty big tire widthwise and I'd imagine it'd rub the bedside if dropped.. Shoot...stock 225/75r15's are too large for a 4/5 drop and it rubs.

Bottom line: not enough info to give you a good answer.
