Is this a 4wd truck? The 4wd optional 15" tire is a 235-60-15, which means that with the tire size you listed, your speedometer will read 3.7% too low (at 60 mph indicated, you're actually going 62.3mph).

Correct tire size for 1995 ford ranger super cab


These are all the tire size options that your vehicle could be equiped with from the factory
4x2

195/70R14
215/70R14
225/70R14

4x4

215/75R15
235/75R15

usually there is a sticker on the drivers door that will have the original tire size on it. If that sticker is missing you can allways try calling a Ford dealer and see if they can tell by running the VIN number thru there data base.

Im looking to put an engine in my 1988 ford ranger, i would like to know what kind and size of engine i can fit into a 2.9 v6 slot. i have already lifted it so its big and i sized up the tires.


With enough talent and enough money and enough time, pretty much anything is possible.

I know a fellow that put 5.0 in an older Ranger without any huge problems.

It'll be interesting! Have Fun!

Can you change from a 14" tire to another size without changing anything else on the vehicle? I have a 1999 Ford Ranger with 225/70R 14 tires which I have found are really hard to find. Can I just get 15"...


You would need to have all 4 the same size. Cant mismatch sizes 1 or 2, will through off abs etc. If you change all 4 it will affect your speedometer. If larger tires put on you will actually be going slower than speedometer says. If you can live with being off say 2 to 5 mph, all is well.

Speedometer is about 20miles an hour off and


most certainly a speed sensor problem!
it may not be pulsing properly or the drive gear is worn etc etc.

Drive shaft for 1988 Ford Ranger extended cab


I have a '88 Ranger XLT extra cab 4X4 w/auto tranny (2.9L V6) that had a 2-piece driveshaft on it. After adding a 4" suspension lift, there was a strong vibration whenever I took off from a dead stop. I replaced the drive shaft with a beefed up 1 piece custom built by a shop specializing in drive shafts. The truck no longer had any vibration, and it hooks up immediately on exceleration. I found the shop on Ebay advertising drive shafts. All I had to do was measure the length from the transfer case/Tranny to the rear differential. The length of the new drive shaft allowed me to adjust almost 3/4" so all I had to do was get it close. I also took close up pictures so the shop could match up the correct flange on both ends of the driveshaft. The last thing I had to do was flip the crossmember brace so it wouldn't interfere with the new drive shaft.
