its nice that they are looking out for their customers

and unless they own a ranger, or have seen it inperson, they wouldnt know it fits


according to fabtech/dotech a 3inch lift is required to run 32s, and im sure thats what 4wp goes by

thats why i order everything from summit... and put it on myself. my truck doesnt see places like that and it never will, discount tire got nosey when i was pricing out tires and was like oh you cant fit that its impossible... i said look out the window its sitting on 32's right now i just want a new set.. he kept saying there is no way it would fit and the proof was smacking him in the face

you want to punch someone in the face for telling you yea cant fit 32's.... i hate to see what you would do to someone that calls you dumb...


not everyone is a ranger fanatic and im sure that 4wp gets the information from either ford or from the tire manufacture and thats what they go buy...

they said it was vertually impossible to get a 285 on a ranger.


I said you want to sell these rims & tires to me, what difference does it make what its going on (but what i wanted to say was) shut your pie hole and sell me the parts i want

i made a bet with the manager at discount tires that 285 would fit well they dident have the tire i wanted in that size but they had 295 so we put them on and they fit fine no rubbing at all so i got them at the price of a 265 saved some money haha that was nice now i need a lift with my next paycheck

The places that go by what they read out of a book drive me crazy. I took my TSL's on steelies to a place to get balanced the guy was like okay we will give it a shot. They put 1 tire on the balancing machine and it was very out of balance and they couldn't fix it. So they put it back on the truck crossthreaded two studs and gave me back my keys. Then I get a lecture about how those tires are not meant for street use and I shouldn't be driving on the streat with them and blah blah blah. In the end the rim ended up being the problem and will never balance properly. I bought Dyna Beads and I will never pay someone to balance my tires again.

Jeff I had the same problem when I went and talked to them about my truck. The really funny thing is they tried to tell me I dont have 31's on my truck now. So I took them outside and showed them I do and made them all eat there words.
