Other than being able to run a wider tire, I don't see any other advantage.

do you have an xlt or edge? your avatar looks like an edge, but your sig says xlt...either way with the spindle you can fit 32s, if you have an edge 33s...and go 15x8

weird...cause nothing on your truck says xlt in appearance...no chrome, has flairs, has fogs, doesnt have xlt wheels...does it say xlt under the ranger badge???

aside from that you can go 33s with the spindle lift

I'm almost 100% positive thats a edge then, not a XLT. What's up with that ridiculous rake in your avatar? You can run 33s with a spindle lift, 31s are gonna look stupid.

Yea dude thats an EDGE! They only made XLT's with coils.

Trent he probably just has the front suspension on there.

With that lift you can run 33X12.50's NO PROBLEM!!!

Hell I ran 33X12.50's STOCK lol

Okay.. here is a picture for you.. this is a 12.5 wide tire, on a 15x8 wheel:

Sorry for the big size.. but the bigger the better!!! :-D







It looks jsut fine.. a wider rim will push the sidewalls out a tad farther.

if you bought it used, im sure the previous owner just took off the edge decals...id recommend some chevy shackles to kick the back up a little but still leave you with some rake and go with 33s!
