Question What size tires should i run?

i have and 02 ranger with the torsions cranked so im sitting pretty much level and i just put on a 3inch body lift. im getting some 15x10 steelies but my question is should i run 32x11.50's or 33x12.50's and if i do run 33's will i rub at all even if i hit some big ruts? thanks for any advice.

Probably the 33's I know LittleBigFoot is clearing 35's with T-bar crank and 3 inch body lift. Honestly with the T-Bars cranked you arent gonna be flexing to much up front anyways. So my vote is 33's.

true, the ride is def a lot stiffer with the t-bars cranked, i think i will go with some 33's, if all else fails i can trim, i just measured it out and i have about 4 inches to play with after i put a 33 KM on, which come out to 32.8's. how much would new gears cost, 4.56's are all i prlly need.
