Tires for a ford ranger

Hello I am new to the forum and I am getting ready to start upgrading my Ranger. I want to put more aggressive tires on it. So id have to sell my current tires. They are about two months old with less than 5000 miles on them they are highway tires they are name brand i forgot the brand though.What could i get for them do you think? What is a good brand of all terrain tires I'd like to stay under $800 for tires. How big can i go and not rub the tires on the truck. Thanks

I'm only going off of what the top right of your post says.... which is 2004 4x4.

Clicky: https://www.ranger-forums.com/wheels...re-size-20047/

Assuming you've got stock sized tires now, they should be 245/75R16 or 255/70R16 on 16" rims. If you're wanting to keep your wheels, I would bump to a 265/75R16. Gives it a nice beefy stance without any adverse effects of adding larger tires.

I hear good things about Falken Wild Peak A/T and Goodyear Duratrac tires. Discount Tire lists them at $145 and $197 respectively. The Goodyears carry the snow flake emblem meaning they're a traction tire and can be considered a winter traction device. Another good option is the tried and true BFG All Terrain price at $199.

I just put some Fuzion suv tires on. Made by bridgestone. Cant beat the price and tread is pretty agressive. Definetly better than the Goodyear sra's it came with and at least $50 cheaper per tire.

With a full tbar crank and maybe a little bit of trimming. But expect them to rub a little. My vote would be the goodyear duratracs. If I was going to get an a/t tire, that would be it.

From outside the truck it's going to be pretty noise. But from inside it won't be that bad. I've had my flowmaster super 44 for a good two years now so I've gotten used to it. But to answer your question, it will be louder and will give a good rumble.

Mine is a "dumped" exhaust too so after the muffler there is no piping. But if you run pipe all the way out then it shouldn't be bad at all

I'm not a fan of cherry bomb mufflers. They are really loud. I would rather get a Flowmaster.
