Recommended tire size on a 2000 Ford explorer
I would stick with Ford's recommendation, look for the tire pressure sticker on one of the door panels or glovebox. There should be tires sizes and pressures listed there.

Enter your information at the following link if you can not find the sticker on the door post. Use what is recommended as Tom stated.....www.tirerack.com
