Thanks again, like all of you I never knew how much of a difference just tires and rims make. Thanks for all of the support! Also thanks for the tip about recording gas milage. That was my first thing I wanted to do, tomorrow I am going to fill up to see what kind of numbers I am getting. I will keep you all posted, for the ones that are interested.

Go to Tire Calculator and put your stock tire/wheel size on the left, put the 285/16 on the right.

I believe you had 245/75R16's stock, so you are 7.8% larger, making you go 64.7 MPH when the Odometer reads 60 MPH...

you are incorrect. i have a 2001 ranger xlt 4x4 with a 4.10 gears. 3.0 automatic.
so again i can ask is the ranger in question a 3.0 or a 4.0.
i have a theory and just want to see if its true before i spend 600 on 285's

he has a 4.0

Not quite right if you're off 4 mph at 55 mph or more. It's more like 8 miles per 100 miles, if it matters to you.

If you have to your bars just to FIT the tires, then they will rub at extreme flex, especially when turning. Getting a tire ON, and getting it to not rub throughout it's entire range of motion, are two different things. Having run 35's for a bit, I can attest to that, as can anyone else who's put on big tires with less than perfect clearance.

The word "fit", therefore is misleading. Lot's of tires "fit" and don't rub in normal driving. Go thrash it a bit and see what happens, lol.

I don't mean this to be unduly critical, but this post doesn't really answer the question of fit because you haven't really tested them yet.
