    So I bought my first Ranger, it's a 97 super cab 4.0 5 speed and love everything about it, except for the wheels that were on it. The kid gave me 6 tires, 4 on rim, two off. The two rears were obviously used to do burn outs. The two extras he gave me hold air for about a day with no signs of holes. So I was floating around on craigslist and found a full set of 275 60 20 for $60 so I bought them. The rears fit fine, look really good to. The fronts I left alone because I know the 275 60s wouldn't fit. Does anyone have an idea of what I could do to make these monstrous tires fit under my Ranger?

    jack it up and bolt them on I have the same tire size and mine fit fine a little rubbing at full turn but they fit, or you could take your fender flares off thatll give you more clearance

    yeah I just noticed you said they were 20's lol they will rub like a mofo, so what you can do is crank your torsion bars if you have them and that should give you the clearance while also acting as a leveling lift kit.

    No torsion bars....it's a 97.

    I fit 32's on a stock 2wd ranger. I had to trim the bumper slightly tho. Like 4 inches slightly.... those are 265 75 17s
