Need some advice

So Im a new guy to this forum and to rangers. Ive owned full size GMs all my life and power has never been a concern. Now that I have my 3.slow and it needs tires, Im not sure I wanna go with BIG tires. Its got the stock 235-16s and they look awfuly skinny to me. I want something thicker, maybe an inch taller? Cant decide between 245/70 (29in), 255/65 (29in but 1in wider) or 255/70 (30in and .8in wider). Dont want to regear, not lifting it either...maybe just a mild TB crank. What would you guys do?

Run 265s they fit fine with a slight t-bar crank. You have 16" rims right?

The 265/70 is like a 30.5 and the 265/75 is a 31.5

I wanted your color but in auto......this one a clean little truck, was female owned all its life, only 16K miles on it. Its still got its OEM tires but theyre all cracked and need replacing ASAP. I couldve bought an 05 Edge, DSG, 4.0 with carpet but with 46K @ $13,4XX but decided on this one for 11,9XX OTD. The DSG was a previous rental/lease/company vehicle.
