Suspension lift, tire size?

Hey all,
First off, I just joined the forum so I can't say I really know my around here or how any of this works, but I'm hoping someone can answer my questions..

I've got a 1991 2wd Ranger XLT Supercab, and I'm not happy with the height. It's too long for how low it is. I'm thinking about installing a 4 inch suspension lift, with 30 inch tires. I've got stock 14 inch tires on the truck already, and I would rather not buy new ones.. I would imagine 30 inch tires would fit just fine, but I could be wrong. Is that doable? Or will it end up looking bad. I'm also wondering if I'm overdoing it proportionally with the lift and tire size. Any suggestions?

You have 14" wheels not tires. And in my opinion 30's would be too small. 31's or 32's would look good on a 4" lift. You can still run your same wheels you have now that will be fine.

do they even make tires that big for 14s? Im gonna say you are going to have to upgrade to 15" wheels if you wanna go bigger than say a 27" tire.

Hmm I thought I had seem some at one time but I guess not. Yeah you will need 15" rims.
