Need tire size recommendation. 1995 Ranger 2wd with stock 16" wheels.

Well, here it is currently. Pretty sad looking. It currently has 225/70/14's on it.

I had bought a set of 16" wheels before and mounted them. It just didn't really look that good to me, think the tires were too big.

Sold those a while back. Another set of just the wheels came up for sale locally, so I bought them. I need a recommendation on a tire size that would fill up the fenders a little better, but not look too big.

I was thinking something like a 235/70/16, but not sure if I should do something smaller than that. I wouldn't really have any use for some all terrain tires or anything like that, it's just a 2wd so it doesn't see anything off road. I'm really not wanting to lose a lot of mileage. Cost is also a factor.
Thanks.

it wasn't really as much of the look, but they also had clearance issues when turning. I've already sold the set that was on there. I bought another set of the same wheels, but these don't have any tires on them.

Find some 225/70/16s and you will be happy. They look good on those wheels. Not to much tire but looks good with the wheels.
