Icon5 Ranger wheels?

Will a 17" Mustang rim and a 31" tire fit on a stock 2wd Ranger? Also, will it make it more sluggish? This is the link to the wheels, but they are on a different tire.

One your ranger.......the gen2 or whatever....you'll need to lift it in order to fit 31's. I think it calls for a 2" spacer to fit 31's. Not positive on that though.

Yes it'll make it feel more sluggish....because bigger tire + stock ratio = lower final ratio. It'll make it feel like a dog when compaired to before.

TRS has a tirefitment guide here... http://therangerstation.com/tech_lib...reFitment.html

Shows you need a 4" suspension lift, or 2" suspension lift with a 3" body lift.

just make sure the offset on the wheels is correct and doesnt shove the tire in too far to make it rub.

You'll probably need to run spacers to run those wheels anyway.

the tire fitment guide is very......odd, you only need a 2" lift to run 31's w/o rubbing on a 2nd gen, so basically leveling coils

Well what if i put a 2" leveling kit, an add-a-leaf in the rear and 1" spacers all around? I really think there will be about a half inch when fully turned but not positive.
