Tires? What size is best?

I have a 97 ranger 2.3L 4 cyl and i was wanting to give it a nice little lift and put some nice tires to match the lift. i was thinking about a 4 inch lift nothing major. new coil springs shocks and leafs ya know the easy stuff. but i want to have some good looking tires for the lift. What do you guys suggest to not kill my power (not that there is much) and still look cool. i was looking around and i think 30s should be good without killing all power but i wanted to make sure. thanks.

I put on a 4" lift on my '97 4-banger and found 30x9.5 R15 to be a good size. Keep in mind, you will kill the limited power you have. I swapped the 3.73s for 4.10s, which helped, but the truck was still slow as hell.

you can do whatever will fit, and regear to keep the power. as for what size tires will fit on that lift, no idea as i have an SLA truck. not a TIB truck
