Tire Help!

Hey guys!
Im having a difficult time finding tires to match up with these rims...
http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/Wheel...All&sort=Price
I plan on getting the 16" verison
I found these tires but im not positive if theyll fit...
http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....KL61&tab=Specs (245/75R16)
Can anyone tell me if these will work, and if not link me to a good set of 30inchers!
Thanks!

Like adam said, they will fit fine. Is there a reason why you want 16" wheels? 15" wheels and tires are cheaper. And down the road when you want to lift the truck (if you do), you won't have to worry about getting 16" tires that are 8 or 10 plys. Almost all 15" tires in bigger sizes, like 32x11.50 or 33X12.50, are 6 plys which work the best on a Ranger.

Not trying to talk you out of what you wanna do, just offering some suggestions. When you do get the wheels and tires put on the truck, make sure to post some pics mane!

Get 15's if you plan to lift in the future you have a better selection of tires. Also both are cheaper

Sorry, but what do you exactly mean, Shackles on the "lowest setting" are they your stock shackles or did you buy some 2" ones?

definity dakotas have more of a similar patter to bfg a/t than the generals do and they're so much worse lol bfg's actually go with the turn when you cut the wheel in the snow and the definities just go straight

Update:
STILL looking around for tires while i continue to save up some mula. I still plan on using these wheels (15x8) http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/Wheel...All&sort=Price
But im concerned about tires fitting this wheel. If i run a 33x10.5x15 will it fit this wheel. The wheel says in the specs that its only 15x8 and im concerned that the tire size i wish to run may be to WIDE for my rim. Is this true? What size is the biggest tire i can run on a 15x8 wheel. When i finally get my tires im going to crank my t bars and throw some 2inch shackles in the back. Thanks for any responses!

a good chunk of people on here run 33x12.5 on a 15x8



not a duratrac or a on the wheel you linked but its a 15x8 wheel

these are 33x12.5 on the wheel you want, without the black. (they might have been 10's though)
