Will these wheels and tires fit??!? Help
 
I have a 96 2wd Ford Ranger XLT 5 speed 4 cyl. My buddy has these tires and wheels that are 30 x 9.50 R15LT. My truck is mostly stock, no lift at all. Will they fit? Any help would be awesome!

They will fit but depending on your rear-end you will probably want to regear.

Sorry I am new to this thing. What do you mean by regear?

I don't know much about it either, but regear means, regearing your gears to better fit your tires. Like if you got really big tires then regearing would help take the strain off the motor a little. right?

Ok I see thank you. What is the easiest way to do that? What do I need to get? Also does regearing make a big difference? Would it be worth it in my situation?

Thats the part I don't know, how to do it. Most people don't regear with 30 inch tires, or thats what i've read on this site. Regearing does make a difference.

I had a 95 ranger with a 2.3 4 cyl in it and had 31x10.50's and had no problems.
