Icon5 what size is best?

ok so i have a brand new 2007 ranger sport, and i was looking to make it really aggressive but i dont want to lift it ( yet anyways) and im considering bf all terrains like a 265/75/r16 for my truck, but i was wondering if it was going to take away from the driveability of my truck or affect the speedometer alot. any help would be greatly appreciated...


p.s. - i have the stock 235/70/R16 on it now.

I would go with the 265/70/16 general grabber at2's. These tires are just as aggressive as the bfg all terrains i had on my old ranger and cost less. I just got them at the local tire place for $99 a piece.

I had a friend at a dealership that hooked me up and put my truck on their little handheld comp and changed my tire size for me. So mine in is right on. So if you know someone to help you out then I would get the 265's.
