Tire Upgrade for 2000 Ford Ranger

Hi everyone although im brand new to the site ive had my ranger for 2 years im looking to but a larger tire on my stock height Ranger and I was wondering if anyone could tell me what i can fit on stock 2 wheel drive 2000 Ford Ranger. I was wondering if it would be better to put 30X9.50R15 or LT235/75R15 would be better, or if you could recommend a good tire size. Thanks alot.

u're on springs up front right? no torsion bars?

you could go with a body lift maybe...thas about $150 for 3" of lift...easily clear rather big tires...

yah, spacers or etc would work too....

get a Front Procomp Spindle lift with like 3" rear blocks and you can run 32x11.5x15 easy on some 15x8 with eather 3.75backspacing or 3.25BS

heres ownes 2000 2wd with spindles in front and running 32x11.5x15 i dont remeber what he did with the rear.





here is a kit that is on ebay alot of guys are running it, its a good kit
HERE THE LINK

JUST make sure you tell them you have a 2WD XLT NOT and EDGE... thats all
