Yeah, holy cow! 15.5 width on 10 inch rims? Probably going to rub on the inside of the fender well or frame or whatever, if not the fender and valance.

At full stuff in the rear, they're going to eat up your flares/fender. I'd hold off mounting them until you're lifted.

Thinking about it now... you might have trouble fitting a 15.5" wide tire on a 10" wide rim to be honest. That might be your most difficult thing here! And what is the backspacing on the wheels?

the tire will fit on the wheel. not much different than a 12.5 on a 8 inch wheel.

its just gonna look really odd seeing a little FAT tire on a ranger.
proly look like this one ranger let me see if i can find the pics

Do you have the wheels ant tires already? go to a tire shop and ask them to test mount the wheels for you.

this is an explorer with 15.5 tires. Im pretty sure he is on 10 inch wheels.
he is also on a 3 inch b/l and 4 inch s/l
but this is how far they will stick out, just for the info. Ill have to call the guy up and find out what wheel he is on.

IMO, I doubt it, my 12.5 just barely don't rub, they did rub the front gap guard until I reversed the gap guards, now I know I 35's and you are talking about 33's but I don't think the difference in height will make a difference I think they will hit the front fender right in front of the door. I don't think the back spacing on the wheels is going to make a difference lots of bs will make it clear the fenders but make it rub the frame, little bs will make it clear the frame but make it hit the fender. They might fit if your wheels have less bs and you get some fiberglass fenders with a 5 inch bulge even then I am not sure they would fit.
