Icon2 upgrading

Well i need to upgrade on tires, and not sure exactly what to get (size wise). right now i have 245/75/16 which comes out to a 30'' tire????????? anyways the tires are going on a 1995 dodge ram 1500 4x4 reg cab. so what would be the largest without rubbing or any modifications to the suspension can i do? ive been told i could do 265/75/16's which is like a 31 or 32 inch tire. i want 285/75/16's but i dont know if they will fit, and i dont want them to look crammed up there. i tired searching on other forums (dodge forums) and i cant seem to find what im looking for. so please just because i dont own a ranger anymore, dont bash me lol. i could really use the help, these tires are bald.

Any tire will fit with a sawzall. Specially since it's a Dodge.

Just kidding man. Umm... not really sure what to tell you though as I never had a Dodge. I would think you could got up to at least a 275/75s on a Full size. But yeah I'd go with what Stone said. Best bet would be try a Dodge Forum again. Sorry can't help you more man.

Wheels and Tires
"Talk about everything from 15" beadlocks to 24" spinners. Low profile Z-rated tires to 49" mud tires. Anything about the things that keep your vehicle rolling should be posted here."

says nothing about rangers there, it says tires and wheels that keep your Vehicle. rolling.. it doesnt say "ranger tires and wheels". it doesn't matter i kept it out of the ranger sections.

you need to calm down man, its not a big deal a lot of people here have honda, Volkswagon, heck even chevy why does it matter? i didnt post it in any of the ranger sections, and if i do have a question i post it in the off topic section most of the time. grow up man.

oh and thanks Ryan, i guess 265 is what ill go with.
