You ought to be alright. I think it would more depend on the width of the tire/rim. If not, some 18s or 19s would look real sharp too. You wouldn't have to worry about low-pros bouncing your teeth out either.

18s will look very good on a lowered ranger. 20s may be too big, to get a tire that will ride comfortably, and not look goofy in your wheel wells.

you may want to look into upgrading the brakes and doing a slight regear, your 4 cyl may have trouble turning bigger wheels, they are heavier than you think

bag maintenance = making sure all your hoses are good all the time, hacking a lot of the rear frame to make the notch. check out www.rangerpowersports.com for more info on baggin, theygot an entire section on it.
