I can safely say my tires do not rub on the valence.

Ok so from experience 33x12.5 should fit comfortably on a newer model 4x4 with cranked tbars belltech 6400 shackles and AAL's. I also replaced the stock shocks with superlifts

So you can fit 31's on a 4x4 with a 2" lift, but you can fit 32's on a 4x2 stock?


i had 31" all terrains on my ranger with no lift and no rubbing and no trimming. oh and thats on a 4x4. here's the best pic i could find, i have a closer one but a fence is in the way.

OK, I'll ask ONCE, then leave you guys alone....

What is the largest size that will fit on the stock 15" 5 spoke wheels that come on a 2010 XLT?

When I switch to BFG's, I'd like to know. ( since the stock Michelins apparently suck :( )

NO T-bar adjustment, NO modifications.

Thanks,

~Joe

Thanks!

I think the BFG All Terrain T/A's in that size would look pretty good.

Well I've gotten a couple emails over the last few weeks asking about certain tire size configurations, and came back to update my original post to say that I have no first hand experience fitting larger tires on Rangers. I only made this thread with Stone's help solely to make things easier for peeps, but now since I can't edit anything no one will see this post prior to emailing/PMing me anyways, but whatever.

Just in case people do read this far into the thread, please don't ask me specific questions about your set-up, I have no answer. I recommend either consulting the chart, or searching through the 7 pages of posts to see who is running a similar set-up, and ask them.

they switched to michellins in 2010? i've got goodyear rt/s and they suck in the rain.

i was looking at a tire chart in an ad in four wheeler and i think when i get new tires/pre-keys and shackels, i'm going with either a 265-70 R16 or a 265-75 R16. i know that's not much bigger then i have right now (255-70 R16) but i don't wanna go big yet and i like my stock rims.

this a good size? would either of those two fit with just keys and shackels?

Yup. Your truck will essentially now be like every other pre 08 truck. I have ran them for 2 years not with no problems what so ever

great. glad to hear. i went back through every page and read. even saw that chart halfway down on page one.

david, the tire chart (tyre1.com or whatever) you posted is not coming up and i would like to see the mph and gearng and whatnot. do you have another site? i bookmarked the other one (gordon glasgow) but it's just giving me the tire size from 265-75 R16 to the 31.65x10.43 number.

chainfire, you got pics of that setup at all? i wanna see what my clearance would look like.

I noticed that it wasn't working while I was searching for the 'edit' button. I have no other links for that site, sorry.
