Need some tire sizes

Im about to graduate highschool and my old man said pick some tires and he will buy them for me. I have Cragar Soft 8s 15x7 i was thinking about maybe putting 245s on it but not sure about the width i want it to look agressive i know that. These tires are going on a stock height 2wd ranger. I want it to look like this guys:




Also show me your stock height ranger with big tires on it, im open to suggestions. Thanks alot.

245 is the width, but you'll be having a hard time getting them for your 15 inch rims. Get 30x9.5/15 or 31x10.5/15 if you can fit them.

From the tire guide....

01-08

XLT & XL 2wd

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

Your tires look fine, get something else.. but trimming is easy and only the plastic part of the bumper will need any..

I'd:
fix your exhaust
bumper mod
headlight mod

Yep, I too would recommend some 31x10.5's.. wide enough to change your stance and give it a more aggressive look, and depending on the tire you might not need to trim anything.. if you get a mud traction, you'll probably need to trim.. if you get a BFG A/T or likewise, its a smaller actual diameter so it may not be needed quite as bad.

Ya i do want to change the stance thats for sure i just dont wanna screw up and get the wrong size tires i would be bummed big time, well i guess i will go with some 31s then what are some good brands i know bfg are but they are kinda pricey what about general, kumho, toyo, and bridgestone? I dont want an aggresive mud pattern just an on and offroad tire, this is basically for looks and maybe a run thru baja for a chase truck if i do race it in 08.

check out Tirerack and choose a general all terrain for that size.. I'll take a quick look and see what ones woudl appeal to me and link them up for ya...

Hmm, honestly, out of all those sizes, I might just recommend the BFG A/T's myself.. there isnt much of a price difference between alot of them, and they are tried and proven brand with good wear and mileage =)
