Tire Confusion

I have been to several forums and followed lots of these threads, and believe up to 265/75/16 (31.6x10.5 )will fit without modification to the stock suspension on trucks with the stock 16x7 rims. the confusion comes in when you get to the 285/75/16 which is 32.8x11.2. The stock 245/75/16 are 30.5 by 9.6. To simplify, anyone who has actually put the 285 on their stock truck post a reply on how they performed. I want the bigger tires but dont plan on offroading much and dont want to mess with the t bars if I can help it. 2004 XLT

Clarifying

sorry if I wasnt clear. I have read the max tire chart. I have also read where some people say they havent cranked the tbars and have had no rubbing others say there is rubbing. Which is it? Are the guys rubbing getting it when offroading or on the highway? Only when flexing or when turning? There is just no consistency to the posts even with similar year and model trucks.

Well each truck is sits a ltitle different, so some have different results than others. Most that have rubbing will only have it when turning and/or flexing.

ya know, awhile back when I was looking at tires and stuff I came acrossed a very useful calculator for showing me, the idiot the dumb consumer what it is that I am actually looking at for size comparison to my current size. this lil calculator I have found invaluable in choosing the size tire i wish to go with, and i think FX4me should add it to his foirst post..

I have a 4wd 1997 Ranger. 4.0L. The truck is totally stock other than 2" coil spacers in front. I currently have 31/10.50 R15 tires and was wanting to go a little bigger. Would 33/10.50's be ok? Thanks in advance for the info.

XLT & XL & Sport 2wd

* 15x7 stock - 215x75x15, 235x75x15, 235x60x15, 30x9.5x15, 31x10.5x15(may need to trim)

what do you mean by "May need to trim" This actually is a great thread, it takes care of a lot of questions. I will probably just go with the 30's so there is no confusion.

may need trim is just that all trucks are a little different. some need trimming on the valance/mudflap some dont...

Is there any problems just putting 225/75/15's on a 93' 2wd?
I have some factory 15 inch wheels I was wanting to use

The truck came stock with 14's and I was wanting to put on a bigger tire.

No. Had a set of that size in BFG ATs as my last set of wheels and tires. Only hit the sway at full hard lock.

be shure to add the axle size in the chart the 7.5 and 8.8 axle have different ratings.
i think max size for the 7.5 axle is 33"x12.5" tires. and the 8.8 is 35" tires. those r the max manufacture specs, i think ??

8.8 some have 39's on them...there is no manufacture specs on that, its just a general rule.. yes the 7.5 if you install a 33" tire you will blow it up not when it will happen...
