#8 of 13 Appropriate Tire Sizes & Issues?
Feb 14, 2009 (7:15 am)
I've got a 1999 Ford Ranger XLT, 2wd, 5spd that I purchased a while back used. Surprisingly good condition considering the age. The front tires are 225/75R15 on what appear to be stock rims (silver V design). The back tires are 225/70R15 on what appear to be cheap black snow wheels. I'm looking at grabbing a set of rims that come with tires on them. The tires are 235/75R15 and I'm wondering if this will be appropriate. The sites reccomend 215/70R15 or 225/70R15 sizes and I'm guessing this is due to the ABS on the front brakes, taking into consideration that the Ranger is calibrated for those sizes (the 3% rule right).
Just wondering if anyone can help me out with proper sizes or what I should expect if I use improperly sized tires (outside the 3% rule). How much damage could this cause? I'm told by some people that there's nothing to worry about. If the tire size fits within the wheel well the only thing I have to keep in mind is that my speedometer will be inaccurate by up to as many at 10km's/hr.

Look on the driver's door frame, there is a sticker on all cars showing tire size and air pressure.
