Icon5 98 Ranger 2wd in need of new tires, possible upgrade and need advice

Update- So I found a 16" rim I like and a tire as well. I currently have 225/70/14s on my truck, the rims I am looking at are 235/60/16s.

A few quick questions. My bolt battern matches, but how do I know for sure that it will fit the spot and I wont have to do any trimming to prevent wheel rub?

Secondly, offsets, how do I read them and what is my stock offset?

Thanks for the read and I appreciate the replies.

Your stock offset should be around 12mm. And you should have no problem with that size, I went from a stock 225/70R14 to a 225/60R16 with no issues at all.

Here are a couple of pictures of the original rim 14 x 6 inch to the 16 x 7 inch rim. There was just a little over 1/2-inch difference.

Hope this helps
