265/75-16

has anybody got a picture of a stock ranger with 265/75-16s on stock suspension. im sure i would have to do a t-bar crank to make it so they arent stuffed but i think they would fit

265's will fit easily on your stock 4x4. I have a 99 4x4 and they fit with room left over. I think you could go to true 32" if you wanted, I wish I would have. You would have to get new rims though, 32" tires dont come with a 16in rim opening, only 15".
Well heres a pic...

Thanks that means alot! acully the black rims make these tires LOOK alot bigger then they acully are. thats one reason why i like them and also they DONT show brake dust. just to let you know you can fit a 285x75x16 on your truck with a t-bar crank.

285x75x16=32.83x11.22x16 so basically you would have to crank the t-bars and if you have mud flaps on the front take them off other then that they will fit fine. now remeber even a 265x75x16 will rub. but where it rubs is the thing it will rub on the sway bar at FULL crank of the wheel thats how rangers are. other then that your good. a 265 will hardly rub on the plastic inner fender even under extreme wheeling but a 285 under extreme might smack it a few times but it wont hirt anything. hell i have gotten my 265 to smack the inner plastic fenders a few times no damage done...

Nice trucks everyone!

I've been lurking on this thread for a little while, considering if I should go with 265/75R16 when I replace my 245/75R16s on my '01 Ranger 4X4 Edge... from what I see here, YES, I will!

I was worried about rubbing, but from the looks of thinks here at 31.6 inches they should fit without trouble on my '01 4X4, correct?

Depends on the rim... 265/75R16 are 31.6". 275/75R16 are 32.2. I use this little conversion calculator here to figure it out.

Nice pics!

the way i calculate tires is easy to do.

the first number is the width of the tire in millimeters
the second number is the aspect ratio or wut percentage of the width is the height of the sidewall
and the third number is the rim size

if you take the first number and multiply it by .(second number here) you get the height of one sidewall. example: 275/75/16 275 x .75(its a percentage so move the decimal two places)

now take the answer to that and multiply it by 2 to get the other side of the tire

take that number and divide by 10 to convert millimeters to centimeters and then divide by 2.54 to convert centimeters to inches.

now you can add the rim size in and get the size of your tire

265/75/R16

265 x .75 = 198.75 198.75 x 2 = 397.5 397.5 / 10 = 39.75

39.75 / 2.54 = 15.6496 15.6496 + 16 = 31.64 (round up to 32. even 35s arent exactly 35 inches high)

My 265's with stock suspension do not rub at all. I have turned the wheel all the way both ways, I have also flexed until my rear tire was off the ground, and no rubbing. You have the same truck as me, (even in the same color ) so your fine.

265/75R16 are a true 32" tire..
If you look at "true 32" tires they are also 31.5" or so.
