ok, what size BF's?

Ok, I decided on the BFG AT's for my Ranger but am undecided about the size. I'm running 16x8 Mickey Thompson Classic II's. Should I get the 245/75 16's or the 255/70 16's? I'm thinking the 255's would stick out a little too far since its a flare side with no flares. Should I just stick with the stock size? Anyone have any pics of 255's on a flareside?

wouldnt those stick out abnormally far? I'm not trying to be a wise ***, i really don't know lol. 255, 265 is the width of the tire correct? or is it the 70, 75? I need reschooled on tires.

-by the way, glad to see you got blue back together Zach.

you guys may have the same truck but Shawn has 16x8s which will casue them to stick out a little further than the stock wheel.

Im not 100% sure how far they will stick out becasue i dont know the specs on your wheels but IMO a 265/75/16 would look the best.

do you plan on lifting? if so maybe think about a 285/75/16?

I want to lift it....really I do. But its just not in the cards right now. Maybe down the road.

As for now, I think I'll check out the 255 and the 265.

Thanks for the help guys

i think 255 is an off size, you might beable to get the bigger 265 for less than the 255.
