Took the Ranger on a trail ride to try out the new tires!

After 2 weeks I finally had a chance to get the truck off the pavement and see how the new tires performed in the dirt. I was impressed with how much they smooth out the ride on the trail and they hook-up really well in the loose dry dirt that I was playing around in. I was never at a loss for traction, I didn't tackle anything too intense but was quite happy with how they performed compared to my old tires. Here's a few pics!

Thanks!
No they fit just fine, no rubbing. 31" came stock on Level II fx4's, My tires before were 265's which are actually 31.6 and they fit fine as well, but were pushing it, i think if i went to 32's they would rub in the front when turning.
