post pics of stock 06-09 rangers w/ 15x8 @ factory height...

As ya'll know, im picking me up some MT Classic IIs (Satin Black) this coming up month. I would like to see a few pics of some 06+ rangers with 15"x8" and @ factory height. Im not sure what tire size to go with. Rememer, this is my daily driver so I do not want my MPG to diminish. I'm goping with a BFG AT KO tire, just dont know what size....32 x 10.5???

If I remember right the stock tire size is 255/70R16. If you want to stay with about the same size I would go with 31x10.50R15 (approx. 3/4" taller and 1/2" wider than stock). 32x11.50R15 is approximately 2" taller and 1.5" wider than stock. Personally, I would go with 32x11.50R15, but you might see a slight MPG loss.

Go 32x11.5, power loss won't be bad at all if you even feel it all. Best looking setup for a stock height ranger IMO.

Go with the 32x12.50 like Trent said. You will regret the 10.50 if you get them.

I don't even thing the ATs come in a 32x10.5, I think its only 32x11.5 for the BFGs.

Yes, it would, but it is not recommended. Should use an 8" wide wheel at the least.

Edited to add: I did not realize your question was for a 16" wheel. You cannot get a 32x11.50 per se in a 16" wheel. 265/75R16 would work perfect for a 16x7 wheel, but will be a little smaller than a 32x11.50. You could also use a 285/75R16, which is a little taller (essentially a 33") and narrower (11.22") than a 32x11.50.

No one makes a 32x11.5x16 tire, its going to be in metric. The closest thing is a 265/75/16 which is fine on stock rims.

I was just editing my post when you posted yours. Did not even realize the question was for a 16" wheel.

No big. You could run a 12.5" tire on a 7" rim if you wanted but its not recommended. You have to mess with pressures to see what gets the best contact patch and make sure to rotate them regularly. I'm running my 35x12.5 on 18x7.5 and while its way more narrower than I would like its not working out too bad.

To the OP-If you don't want to lose MPG then don't do it. You're going to lose gas mileage by switching to a bigger tire. It's also going to hurt because of the added weight that comes with larger tires.
