ok so i need new tires.........

alright so as of right now i have 31/10.5/15 on my 2001 2wd ranger. i got a 3" spindle lift up front and thats it. now my tires are close to being dead and i need new ones also graduation is in two weeks so im going to get them as a gift......now i want to know if i will be able to fit 32's on there with no rub....i know they will be fine up front cause i am running no valence to help but im not sure if they will fit in the back. will i need to put like an AAL on or something. i need some info here please. also what could i do to add 33's and not add a body lift? i know i need 3" coils cause i have stock on right now but what else.....everything but the tires will come out of my pocket so im going to need to keep it on the lower side of the money thing...

thanks mike

do the 3" coils, the AAL and the chevy drop shackle (which actually lfits the ranger a bit) and you should be fine. and yeah, 04blackedge hit the nail on the head. BFG AT's all the way. i was going to run the same set up (coils, aal, chevy shackles) amd run the BFG MT's before my frame cracked :(

when i ran 32s on my spindle lift i had rubbing in the back with just AAl, but with the shackle added to that it was fine. my backspacing was also 3.25 so that did not help

32x11.5r15, very common, had them in the big o A/T above as well as my current BFG ATs...33s would be getting a lot of rubbing i would think

yea they will...but why do you have 10.5" wide wheels??? thats definitely going to make it easier to rub unless you get those coils as well

Mike your stock wheel is 7" wide and the tire is 10.5" wide.
You'll be fine with 11.5 on a 7" wide wheel.

edit- it doesn't appear you have stock wheels, but they can't be thinner than 7", so either way you have nothing to worry about
