Icon4 Rubber help please!!

(edit) Since my husband is refusing to let me get a lift kit on my Ranger, I'm now looking for a tire that will make my truck look more aggressive. Like as in a mudder type tire.

Now without doing a lift and without torqueing the tbars, is a 31x10.5x15 the only thing I can fit or is there such thing as a 32x10.5x 15? Need your help here please....I don't like my rubbers!!

Swampers look mean and perform mean as hell. But they are loud as hell on the road. I love me cooper STT's.

well im not really one for Poser tires, since in the real world I use my truck 90% on the road and maybe 10% off the road... I like the Nokian Vatiiva's and Bridgestone Revo's.... they'll work great on the road and do the trick on most any trail im gonna venture down.

the new MTR's are really growing on me. and i figure, if the old mtr's, like i have are as great as they are, the newer ones MUST be an upgrade right??


i'd say those, or KM2's

and a 32 is do-able on a truck without cranked tbars i would think. but why not crank em?? its really easy, and only takes a few min if even that.

First off, yes it is my truck. Secondly, there is a thing as knowing your battles in a marriage. I'll back down for now since he does totally support me in my other habit (drag racing my stang). I'm not saying I won't persue it in the future....just tired of that argument right now.

See he has this idea, lifts are bad and will cause issues. Hmm...ok, doesn't like the tbar crank cause it will wear out stuff....soooooo....hmmmm...I couldn't secretly do the tbar thing...hehehehe

Ok, soooooo I guess I really need to look at pics of all these tires and pick one out, get em ordered, mounted, and get rolling. Then I can get to working on my dual exhaust.

Yes, I only rubbed at full lock with my 32x11.5 and that was only with a mild crank on the t-bars.
