Talking Max tire size on 1997 2wd ranger

My son just picked up a 1997 2wd ranger. The stock tires are 215/70/15. What are the largest tires he can fit onto the 14 inch rim that will not rub anywhere, with absolutely no modifications of any kind? Sorry if the post seems redundant but I tried a search and couldn't seem to get the information I wanted. Thanks!

Is it a 15" or a 14" rim? You stated both...

If it's a 15" rim, I'd go with a 235/70/15... You'll have a lot of options in that size.
I wouldn't think it would rub. And if it does, probably not anything too bad.

If it's a 14" rim, a 225/70/14 would work with no rubbing.


Hope this helps.

I just went from 225/70/14 to 215/75/15 on my 94 SuperCab and it works great.....can't fit a fully inflated spare going any bigger-like 235/75/15, so I guessed okay there.

I believe on the 93-97 trucks, you can fit a 30.5 or 31 on the 15" tires and get by.

I looked all over for a tire for that rim. The problem it isnt the most popular rim size and all the tires that fit it where car all season tires. The tallest tire I can find that will fit that rim is a 225/70/14. I dont know what kind of tire you are looking for. If you live where it snows I recomend the Cooper Discover At in that size. They are not to bad in price and they are great in the rain and snow. If you want to spend more try the Bridgestone Dualers At.

I, too, run 235/75/15's on my 97 Ranger 2wd. The truck sits as high as an Explorer, too. Had 'em on it when I found it and still had the 14" spare underneath. Went to a junk yard and found a 15" rim for 10 bucks, 10 bucks for a used tire at a repair place that I've used, and now I have the extra 14" spare that I don't know what to do with.
