Drive it, Break it, Fix it, REPEAT !
I think I still have 2 of the so called deer hoof rims that I have no use for. I took them off my truck many years ago when I was running 31s. How about $75 + shipping, OBO, if you're interested. Here's a picture of the rim with a 31" x 10.5" x 15" tire mounted on my truck, this will give you a better idea how it fills the wheel well.

In case you're wondering...

On my '94 with stock suspension, 4x4, 4.0L, auto, 3.73.gears, and 15-inch stock deer hoofs (as shown above in 97rangerXLT's shot) I can run 31s with no issues as far as fitment. Current tires are Goodyear Wranglers (from way back, can't even remember when I bought them) P236/75R15s.

As Eric said, 27" isn't a big increase so your wheel wel is still gonna look a little sparse. And racsan is right about moving up to 15s. I would advise that as well when funds are available. Steelies aren't that expensive and can be made to look pretty good. But I know the feeling. I'm dying to put bigger tires on mine and I'm trying to reign in my impulse until I have the cash to do it right.

If you have any photoshop skills, take some shots with what you have and what you want and see what it looks like. If you want, I'd be happy to do that for you.

That would be really awesome of you.. I will send over some pictures to you tomorrow no doubt!!
I mainly am looking to use as much from this truck as possible because of the attachment I have to it.
I’ve been trying to find 14” tires that are big and beefy that I wouldn’t have to do much modifying to fit... I’m finding that they are hard to come by

Thank you for the hook up on them!!! I will let you know if I become interested. I may try and sell a set of 17X8.5’s I have layin around for something different.. do you have a better tire size I could find that are 14”? Something bigger then what I’ve been wanting?

Profile of the truck if possible, left or right side doesn't matter. Try not to take an angle as the perspective will be off. Are the tires you're looking at the ones in the image above? If so great. If not, include a link to the tires you're looking at....or I can find some similar.


Skip the profile. See if you can get an angle to match this image:
