Tease!?!?!?

I know another set of procomp 1079's on a ranger, but through epic win pricing error got a deal on these that I couldn't refuse. They're off the truck till I decide what tire size.

30x9.5 or 31x10.5

I'm planning on running the doestch 2" spacer up front, my truck is an 08 xlt 2wd with the duratec, 5 speed, and 3.73 gear out back. I read the tire size chart sticky in this section. It said 30" was largest for my truck stock but with a 2" spacer up front would it be possible to run 31"?

My concern with 30's is the rim is 8" wide, would a 9.5" wide tire be to skinny for the rims?

go with a 10.5 wide. I would run the 31x10.5 if it'll fit. That would give the truck an agressive look. When I had my '88f-150 I ran 32x10.5 swampers on the stock rim and it just turn the truck from wussy looking to mean as hell looking.

31x10.50 is the right size for that truck, given the +2". Should look fine..

You just convinced me to get those wheels.

I've been eying them, but wasn't sure how they would look.

Yup.
