I've posted info on some other threads; but in the spirit of trying to help Fellow-Ranger-Owners decide on tire size for the Stock Sport Wheels, here's my set-up:

BFG K02's LT275/70R17
ReadyLift 3" Level (front only)
Stock Crash Bars Intact

After the initial install, I decided I wanted a bit more "aggressive" stance, so I added the 1" BORA spacers. (FWIW.... the above pic's are with the spacers installed)

Here's the spacer's post:

Hope this helps!
Cheers!

Looks great! How does it ride? I'm curious since that size is a load range E. I was considering that size or the LT255/75R17 BFG K02. It's only slightly taller, but 1/2" narrower and a load range C.

Thanks Shea!

I remember your excellent/informative comments on the tire pressure thread of this size tire when I "chalked" my tires:
https://www.ranger5g.com/forum/threads/bfg-ko2-lt275-70r17-tire-pressure-info.7792/

I really like the ride, and while I only had the original tires on for a short time, I don't think there was/is much difference?

I am very happy with the on-pavement performance & overall feel/ride; and with the occasional off-road/snow use I have encountered.... for me, the tires are excellent!

I'm no expert; but my wife is and she says "I like how your truck rides.... it's comfortable and smooth".

So I've got that going for me!
:cool:

Thanks much! I've been looking at other brands, but the BFG K02 has proven over the years to be a solid go-to tire.

You can get the 275/70R17 in load C also.
In other brands you can get a load range C, but I've decided that I'm going to go with BFG at this point.

Your ROW Ranger might be different but here’s what I learned on my Canada/USA Ranger...

When I was installing my Rough Country 2-1/2” level kit, as an experiment, I mounted my 275/70R17 General Grabber A/T 3s (32.2”) in the front before installing the kit because I knew people would ask this question.

They rub - everywhere - period.

I doubt they would even clear the knuckle with stock wheels - my after market wheels have a +15mm offset, so they cleared.

Even with my 2-1/2” level, they are very close to rubbing the crash bars. Looking at how they fit my Ranger, I’d say 275/70R17s are a bit better suited to a 3” lift, barely clear the crash bars on a 2-1/2”, will likely rub on a 2”, and are a definite “no” on zero lift/level.

I think they will help you achieve a smoother ride, although someone could make an argument against.

I guess the question would be “to what degree.....” very subjective.
Help me understand how aftermarket UCA's would help the ride? I've never swapped or replaced a set so I'm clueless on these. Do they change they ride height and or wheel angle as well?
