"It is easier ask for forgiveness than for permission"

Just do it dude, 30x9.50 will fit just fine. When i wanted to lift my truck, my parents didnt think i should. not because they thought it would be unsafe, ive had much larger lifted trucks, but for the money issue, so i listened to the lecture, walked upstairs and ordered a body lift and traded my neighbor my 32s for his 33s. doooo it

just upgrade to some 30x9.5 all terrain tires and you could tell parents they are safer for all weather conditions. they should fit just fine. most guys I see with your generation ranger have 31x10.50s so I'm sure 30s would be fine. Save money and keep stock rims. If you really want somethin lil different you could just paint them black or somethin. Or look to trade someone or buy used.
