50 tarmac - 50 mud:
BF GOODRICH A/T
60 tramac - 40 mud:
those are the best 50/50 tyres money will buy but for the sizeing you may have to speak to kwik fit or even better if you have a 4x4 prep workshop near you ask them.
what size are the standard tyres on the ranger and i'll see if i can find some.

I think yours are 245/70r16 as standard, BFG make an A/T KO in that size too. For more aggressive and muddy work consider the BFG M/T KM. As the other replier suggests the Cooper range are also very good, think the model I would use were something like SST or STT.
I did a lot of research on this subject and found that some utility companies had fitted 265/75r16 tyres to theirs, but had problems with them rubbing. I was told that 245/75r16 is the largest sensible size without causing problems. The next size tyre was a 255/70r16, but TBH I couldn't be bothered risking it.
Try having a look at some of the Government/Municipal departments for African nations as they seem to have deals with Ford to buy Rangers now. Libya for one have been using them as one of the standard Police fleet. Any mods would have been sorted out by these guys.
Hope that helps,
