Superlift-Tires

OK...im getting ready to order the superlift kit for my 01 ranger. I have the stock 16 inch wheels which i would like to keep for now. I know that there are tons of option for 15's but that will have to come later. How will 285/75's look? Will they fill up the wheel wells ok? Anyone have any suggestions?

Mike

Another question i had...the tires on my truck now have about 8k miles on them. They are 245/75 16, my wifes jeep has 245/70 16 and they need to be replaced soon. Would the tires from my ranger fit on the jeep without problems? That would offset a good amount towards my new tire purchase.

245 * .75 = 183.75

245 * .7 = 171.5

So as long as you have 12 more mm of clearance you'd be fine. I would assume that would be no problem at all.
