Frankenstien Rim Tire combo (help)

Complete Ranger noob here. I'm dealing with a 2005 2wd 4cyl, 5spd, ranger. I think its an XL or XLT. (no edge markings or fender flairs, no torsion bars). The door sticker says stock rim size was 15" but someone put a 16" x7.5 mustang rim on it. It Currently has 215 70 16's on it but the tires look lost in the wheel wells. I've looked at the tire sizing chart sticky, would I be able to put a 30x10x16 on it? Or any recomendations on sizing?

They don't make a 30x10/R16.

They make a 285/65R16 Which is similar.

31x10.5R15 is a pretty common size that would fit most 4x4 trucks. I don't know about 2wd ones.

I believe that at 255 70 16 is 30.1x10". According to the tire size chart this will fit on an 15rim but this truck has 16" wheels even though it shouldnt have been an option for it
