What size are my rims?

Without taking the tire off and measuring, what size are the alcoa rims that come on my ranger...tire is 31x10.5x15. I want a bigger tire but someone just told me that the tires I have are the biggest I could put on a 15 x 7 alcoa. Shat!!

JoshK ran several 33x12.5x15 on stock 15x7 alcoas no problem, good wear too. Who ever told you that was smoking crack! Many other members have ran 33x12.5 on a 15x7 alcoa

Thanks! So by that pic, a 32 x 11.50 will fit with no probs?

LMAO! Thanks Zach. I think he said "recommend" max size.

That settles some issues, since I want to keep my alcoa's the max I can sport would be a 32 x 11.50 and that would mean I don't need a body lift and I can just crank the tbar.....right?

Doesn't look like much diff btwn the 32's and 31's. You had no rubbing? Now Bill's 33's look AWESOME! Do you know if he had rubbing? Also, who's Bill? I want to know where he got his bullbar!

I think I might just go with 32's and maybe a different nobbier looking tire and forget the lift. That money could be spent on my exhaust and bull bar with lights. AND I SOOOOOO AM JEALOUS YOU GOT ONE OF THE WAAGS!! Man!!! Thanks soooooo much for the help!!

in person you can see the difference with 32's faster then 31's..

get some like MT's and it will look good. personally i loved my truck with 32's and no lift it was great i should have just left it. i dont plan on going larger then i am now
