Biggest Tires?!?!

Anyone know what the biggest tires I can put on my 93' Ranger without a lift?
Right now I have the stock 215/14's. I really cant afford to buy rims. So what Im asking is for the biggest tires size on my 14's without rubbing on the wheel well.

Im wanting mud-terrain's.

Thanks

He said its a '93. Thought those were the TTB front end aka no T-bars. Could be wrong though

You sir are correct, kinda. 4x4s have ttb (twin traction beam) and 2wds have tib (twin i beam). I beam rangers are really hard to tell what size will fit without pictures of the truck. Sus. is prone to sag bad in them is why. I fit 31s on my stock 97 which is tib and never scarped or rubbed, then lifted it for looks. If you go with 15 in rims 235s or 30s should fit no problem, 31s is pushing it unless you level it. 14s are becomin rare, besides trailor tires. Upgrade to 15s, cheaper tires and more choices.

But a company (super swamper i think) offers a mud terrain in 28x7.50 i think is the size for 14s. They are $$$ and very soft so life on highway is not good. Plus i got all 4 of my wheels (steel) for under 200 then sold my stock ones for 200 so i came up even on the wheels.

no point for body lift on a 2wd. the suspension kits are cheap..

there is a sticky thread in the wheels and tires that have the sizes you can run, i dont want to post it you could have looked..

Suspension lift and cut those fenders.

get the cheapest lift that you can find. Get the tire size you want hack those fenders so there is clearance for the tires.
