31 or 32 inch tires??

Hello everyone, my name is chad and i am new to the forums. i have a 2000 ford ranger 2x4 xlt 3.0l with spring spacers up front to level the ride with 15x8 black steel wheels and 235/75/15 tires blacked out it looks good and doesnt rub. i am putting on a 3" BL next week and putting on bigger tires. im not sure if i want 31 or 32 inch tires for two reason, one will 32s rub? and two will i have to change the gearing if i got to those size tires? thanks and ne help is appreciated!!!!

By the title I think you're leaning toward 31s, lol. You should be fine with 32s.

I also was wondering...if i went with 32's then i would have to go with an all terrain pattern so no rubbing and and 31 for mud terrian bc of the ****. is this correct or would a 32 mudd terrain work without rubbing and without having to change the gears right away? thanks again everyone....

i know it is, i have the ttb and he has the ifs, but doesnt he have torsion bars compared to my coil springs...so therefore he would have to have his torsion bars cranked instead of coil spacers on coils he doesnt have

somebody will say it eventually...2X4 = Lumber Lingo
4X2 = Truck Lingo

And yes...32's will be fine..

He doesn't have torsion bars, the only 2wd with torsion bars are Edges and Sports. He does have coils so therefore he could put in coil spacers which I think he has.
