Hi all ,
I've read loads on this forum already but still I'm having no success with trying to solve my starting problem with a PK 2011 Ford Ranger.
Basically I purchased a 2011 model ranger with approx 65,000 k on clock , the ute was a liquidation sale, so I have limited info on the vehicle.
can anyone advise what is the maximum tyre size for the PX Ranger that I can fit (without scrubbing and changing rims). I am looking at 285x70R17. I am lifting the car by 50mm shortly.
