ok here's a tricky question guys. do you guys think i could fit 33 12.5s if i got 3" bulge glass up front on just a t bar crank and a 1 inch lift in the back (AAL plus shackle minus block)? my question is mainly about the rear, i'm pretty positive the glass will fit them up front but i've got a hunch at full stuff in the rear it would rub to ****. also on 15x8 with 3.75 backspacing... thanks.

tire size

I know ther is probably something in the forum but I couldn't find it. I have a 2006 2wd, it has 15" rims on it, w/o doing and lifting, spacing ect.. can I put 16x7 rims with 265/70/16 or should I use a little smaller tire like a 255/65/16. I do all highway driving and am looking at the Michilin ltx ms/2.

So to flash my pics.. I have 15" alcoa rims and 31" BFGoodrich.

Also, bought this cap in Cali like 5-6 months ago for $60!! Couldn't pass it up. Still haven't gotten around to painting it yet. Might switch back to the hard bed cover and ditch the cap since I got these new (used) rims. (also ignore the coolant leak on the ground. My Radiator was leaking... So I replaced it myself. All fixed)







This is what it looked like coming back from Cali to Chicago for those interested:



But 31's fit on my STOCK 95 ranger!! I just had to re-straighten my bumper. There is a if I try to turn all the way, but no biggy... They look freakin awesome!!

new to this forum. this may be a silly question. The tire size chart does not have 2010 model year. Should I assume that 2009 4x4 sport would be a guide to go by?

I wanna get bigger tires if possible i have been reading all sorts of threads and I understand that all trucks are different. But i wanna fit 31s on my truck but im at stock hieght people say that if you put spacers on your truck your tires will wear bad because of the camber and caster is off . Is that correct?? Im putting 235/75/15 goodyear duratracs on it but i would like to go bigger if possible whats my solution.

First let me say I did not go through 9 pages of this thread.

Second. is there a cross over chart somewhere that explains. What the metric size of a 33x12.50x15 breaks down to?

i know the way my edge sits now a 265/75/16 would most likely rub,
It currently runs 245/75/16's

However preparing to do the body lift and some other small suspension work. I want to be sure I get the best tire wheel combo. I have tried to figure the offset out the best I can. I want to go at least 2" out further than factory on a 16x8. I also want to stick with 16" tires. I have been looking, my buddy said go with a 285-75-16... Which is what I have on my F150 now. looking these sitting next to my ranger... I am highly skeptical. They are about 20-25% now and I dont think it could happen... But I do not know these things either.

what translates to a 32/11.50/16?

At the time I first put those tires on, it was just that torsion bar crank listed in the chart. Nothing more - tons of people run that (285/75/16).

Currently, I still don't have anything done to the suspension, but I have added a bodylift.

285/75/16 = 32.8x11.2/16

There will be slight variations based on the actual tire used...but that's close.

So far it goes as follows (If anything is wrong, let me know and I'll change it):

*DISCLAIMERS*

*Depending on vehicle age and history of driving conditions/habits stock suspensions may have 'sagged' causing tire clearance issues. As a result, the said tire sizes are not guaranteed to fit every application listed.It is to be used as a guideline for choosing tires, not the 'be all end all'.

*Wheel Backspacing/offset DOES MATTER but this a GENERAL chart. some trucks my differ, modify at your own risk!!!*

*R-F, fx4me, Redneckstone, and the other contributing members take NO responsibility in the harming of your vehicle*




i have photo proof of a 06 xlt 2wd with 15x8's and 32x11.5R15's, no lift, no rubbing.

Hey guys quick question! 08 Fx4 with levelling lift kit 3 inch front 2 inch rear whats the biggest size tire I can fit without trimming. Im wanting to have a bigger backspacing then stock as I want the wide stance look. Any ideas? I have 265/75/16 with rub at very sharp turns but with stock rims

kryzanowski107 you are probably rubbing on your front swaybar. Your wheel offset/backspacing is to blame. Bigger than 32s most of the time you have to run different wheels to get the right clearance. I have an 08 sport with shackles and expo leaves and I can tuck a 265/75/16 AT in the rear and only get sway bar rubbing in the front with maxed tbars

If you want a wider stance - you will actually want wheels with a smaller backspacing - not bigger.

They are 'ok' but not ideal. Purchase a quality setup & stay on top of the maintenance and odds are, you won't have any issues.

Not that it matters - but I wouldn't personally run them.

Most rational people will admit that getting wheels with the proper backspacing is the 'preferred method' over spacers (all else equal). A wheel with proper backspacing has less points of potential failure than a setup involving spacers - no way around that.

However, I don't subscribe to the 'spacers are the devil' idea because I know many people have ran them successfully - but I do know the preferred method is to get wheels with the proper backspacing and never have a need for spacers in the first place.
