Tomorrow morning I am taking ole yeller up to the shop to get some new 31/1.5/15 Goodyear Wrangler Authority tires put on. Im pretty pumped and wondering if I will even get sleep tonight because of it.

I do have a question though. I know that I will have to fork out the $$$ for calibration of the new 31s but does anyone know how much different the speedometer will be off going from my stock 235s to 31s?

ya but what size tire do you have now cuz 235 is how wide it is means nothing as far as the speedo bro the second number means from the rim to the top of the tire. so if you have a 235 65 15 and a 235 65 16 the 16 inch tire will be bigger cuz its 65 from the rim.

Stock size is 235/75/r15 and new is 31/10.5/r15.

I do want to lower it one day but that will be years down the road when Im in the navy and after I get my 2014 mustang. When I drop the truck ill be dumping a lot of money in it it for coilovers and all sorts of stuff. So I figured for now lets get some 31s and drive those for a few years to see how it is.

About to head out in a few minutes to get them put on!!!!!

read his(west) whole post, he never said just 235 is 28.9" tall he said 235/75/15 is 28.9" tall.

It doesn't really matter how big the rim is. "235" is the width of the tire in millimeters, then "75" or whatever the number may be is sidewall height in percentage of the width. So a "75" series tire would have a sidewall height that is 75% of 235 mm. That turns out to be 176.25 mm tall for just one sidewall. Double that and you get the total sidewall height. Add in the wheel diameter and you get the total tire height.

I cant pick out your kindergarden typing, but loose the attitude. What I said made perfect sense, you were only referring to the 235 and as West stated, the second number is a percentage so really it doesnt really matter the rim size

df;glkja;otyih;ortdjasl;k thats kindergarden and you didnt say much besides LOOK AT WHAT WEST POSTED IT SAYS THE TIRE SIZE. my point is that west made a post saying a size and converted it not that ol ford had that tire size at the time. so i asked old ford what size tires he had. that when you came in acting like a jack ass from any other ranger site saying someone already stated the tire size.

um ok. if you have a problem with me being a "jackass" just pm me, theres no need of it being all over this thread about tires.

Jason i seen the pic on facebook with the 31s, it looks awesome! those tires are on sale every week in 31x10.50, i wouldve got them for my ranger if i was keeping her

Okay, stop now or I'm closing this thread. I want to see these tires and we shouldn't be thread jacking Jason's thread. Misunderstandings happen and we move on. No need for this to continue!

We're all friends here!



Jason,

where the hell are the pictures? LOL! ;D
