Your vehicle came with 255/70-16 tires. Original Equipment sizes are tire/wheel combinations that give you the best handling, ride, and mileage. If there is an optional size it will be listed on your vehicle (usually found in the door jam or gas cap) or in the Owner's Manual. Changing the overall diameter of the wheel/tire combination will effect the handling, suspension, mileage, and accuracy of the speedometer. A larger wheel/tire combo will reduce your mileage considerably. It may look good, but will cost you in the long run. But if you insist, go here for more information on what exactly you can install.

What is the biggest size tire for Ford Ranger?

31x10.5x15 is about the largest tire you can fit on a stock 15" Ford Rim, without doing any modification to the suspension, aka "lifting", of the truck. You should have full turn radius without rubbing. If you choose to go with aftermarket wheels and suspension, the sky is the limit... I have a 2000 Ford Ranger 4.0L 4x4 off-road and used to run super swamper LTB 31x11.50x15 with no problem. another 1/2 in and i wouldve been rubbing the fender well.

Will 2003 Chevy impala rims fit a 2002 ford explorer?

Ford and Chevy Have always used different sized bolt patterns for their Wheels, on the newer models, they might bolt up but then that leaves the problem of the different types of wheels. Wheels on a front wheel drive car have a lot more back spacing then the wheels of a rear wheel drive car. If the bolt pattern does match up, you will probably run into problems with the Impala wheels rubbing against other suspension parts on the Explorer, Springs, shocks, control arms, ect... could cause damage to the Explorer Suspension. You can try it, i hope it works for ya, but i wouldn't recommend it. Might cost you more for replacing suspension parts in the future. hope this helps

How can you prevent your 24 inch rims from rubbing in the rear of your 08 dodge charger?

Well, seeing as smaller rims probably aren't going to be an option for you... Check where the tires are rubbing; if it's just a plastic or sheet metal bit, you should be able to trim it enough to clear the tires. If the rubbing is taking place on a more structural piece; you'll have to invest in some suspension upgrades to lift the frame enough for the clearance needed.
