Re: tire size poll

well that tire converts to a 30" tire with it being stock you might be able to run a 31 with out rubbing

Re: tire size poll

When my 97 4x4 was stock, 31x10.50's would rub slightly at full turn.

Re: tire size poll

Mine is a 03 Edge so its got the 2 in rear blocks and t-bars in the front. Without the t-bars cranked up on the 2wd my new 31x10.5x15 dont rub anywhere. 31's would be a safe bet i would say.

Re: tire size poll

True. I'm just saying that at fully stock height, mine scrubbed. He should be able to crank the t-bars and be fine with 31x10.50's.

LOL... I think it is... but I could be wrong... my 06+ Ranger knowledge is a little lacking...

Re: tire size poll

Cranking the bolts a couple times should give you enough room for 31's. Remember though, that cranking the bolts will probably throw your alignment out of whack.
