Default Tires to fit a 10" wide rim?

I've spent the last couple days searching through google and haven't come up with nearly anything that pleases me or makes sense. Most of those tire and wheel sites out there are just trying to get me to go to a 17" or 18" wheel and slap a really thin sidewall on it.


I would like to know what tires would fit well, but not bulge out alot on a 15x10" wheel? I found a 295/50/15 and I might go with it, but I'd like to have more options first. The one I found only came in one brand...

I admit I suck at searching for things like this...

For your Ranger I assume? That size you've listed equal less 27" tire which would be very small.

Tire size converter:

You probably want to end up with something about 29"-30" diameter and about 10.5"=11.5" width.

I'm putting them on a lowered ranger...


I forgot to say that I need them to be a STREET tire, but with all season tread (or something close to it, I hate directional tread.)

Hmm... I'm wondering how good those Mastercrafts are?


I've always liked the Coopers. I may just go with them.

Is there any other tires that I could be missing out on?

1Badexplorer, could you get me a pic of those?


I am kinda set on that size too. It's an inch and a half bigger than stock, so it would give me that nice rake stance.

Heres some pics of mine with 275/60/15 on 8" wheels. I believe you could put them on 10" without alot of trouble. Note that mine is 4wd of course.
