You seem to have posted the same question, although with different phrasing, in two separate forums. Not only that but you are asking about a topic that has been discussed over and over again. I am not trying to be deliberately rude here, but seriously - if you really want to know something, using the search feature really is a good idea.

Ground clearance is not just a single number! There is more to it than distance to lowest point of vehicle.

Want to know something? Do use the search function. No, it doesn't always help, but you miss out on a lot of stuff if you don't try.

Where are you going to get that lift? Build it yourself? That's where you need to start. You can't just thow out ideas without some research. Figure out the lift issue first, then figure out how large of a tire can fit.

simple question simple answer.......... you could go with 245-75-r16 or you could go with 30x9.50xR15..

i'm planning on going for 30x9.5xr15 because the tire is less expensive then any 16 inch tire

reality check - it's not a tank, and never will be.

but it'll get you way further than any other cute-ute out there.

I just put 245/70-16's under mine. They have a 29 1/2" dia. I have a slight rub on the pinch-welds on the front. They only rub when you lock it over. Other than that though, it's pretty good. A friend of mine is going to hammer down the pinch welds for me and heat up the fender liner to hammer it flat. Should be good to go after that.

Definitely. You must match the size of your tires to the lift of your car. Because if it is not match there will probably some error will occur and it is not nice to look at.

Stu's would most likely be a similar story but you would probably rub at full compression. Those are really the largest tires that fit the wheel well under any sort of compression. I tried a friends 31x10.5's and I couldn't even steer without rubbing and that was with it still on jack stands.

I had 30x9.5x15 on mine before installing StuCoils. They rubbed slightly on the passenger side wheel well at full right lock, but not on the pinch welds. A different rim with a little less offset would have probably taken care of it.

15" Ravine Rims, 235/75/15 Duratracs, CRDSTU coils, JKS Quicker Disconnects, Airbox Baffle Mod., Midland 822 CB w/ 2' Firestik II, Weathertec floor liners.
