To reduce the amount of threads on "how big of a tire I can fit on my ranger", Ill make this thread for reference. Measurements may not be exact, height will vary between models, (i.e. a supercab 4.0 ranger wont gain as much lift out of a certain coil spring than a regular cab 4 cylinder ranger would)

1983-92 Rangers, Bronco IIs, and Explorers.
-stock height - on these ~20 year old trucks, your springs have sagged over the time, so you can probably only run 235/75R15s without rubbing issues.
-2"- 3" lift - with 2-3" lift, you are in the clear with 30x9.50s.
-4" lift - 31x10.50s or 32x11.50s usually suit this lift height the best.
-6" lift - 33x12.50s are the best fit for this lift height. depending on application, 35x12.50s fit nice too.
-8" lift - 37x12.50 is a good fit for this amount of lift.

1993+ Rangers.
-stock height 31x10.50s fit pretty good on stock height, but you may get some rubbing on the pre -98 rangers.
-2-3" lift 32x11.50s are the best fit
-4" lift 33x12.50s fit this lift height the best
-6" lift 35x12.50s fit this lift height the best
-8" lift 37x12.50s fit this lift height the best


8" of lift is the most offered for the TTB, so anything bigger than that and you are looking at a straight axle swap.

Putting bigger tires on your truck creates much more strain on your drivetrain, and re-gearing your axles is strongly recommended.

235/75r15~=29"
I run 31x10.5/r15 on my '85 b-II, stock [old] suspension with slight rubbing issues. I have cut out the rear 1/4 panels and will eventually do the same to the front fenders.
