Tires size on non lifted ranger

Hey guys,

Looking for some insight about tire sizes. I bough a 1996 ranger XLT extended cab 2wd with a 5 speed manual 4.0 OHV. It currently has 215/70R15 tires on it. It is time for new ones and I am wonder if a set of 31X10.5's will fit without lifting the truck?

Also the truck has a 3.08 hear ratio will is that too tall of a ratio for 31's?

The other ting I was thinking about was going with a 30X9.5 as it would a slightly easier to turn and although the narrowness may look a little funny we get a lot of snow up here but a narrower tires works much better in the snow anyways. Would this be a better option?

I am hunting for a 3.73 or a 4.10 with a L/S in it but they are hard to come across in Canada at a reasonable price.

Thanks,
Fraser

31's will be fine, but you better get at least 3.73's

I don't think 31s are going to fit on the front without some lift springs. If you're running in snow, I would get 235/75r15s with an all terrain tread. Mudtires suck in snow/ice. I had a 97 with 235/75 Goodyear Workhorses and I rarely used 4wd during the winter.
