Would someone like to hazard a guess as to how a Kia Sportage with a 4" suspension lift with tyres 235 75 15 would look.

the 31x10.5 would look great, but i'm on a budget. as long as the 235 75 15's dont look stupid with the 4" lift

I know with 205's and my lift it looks pretty lame. Check <a href="www.craigslist.com" target="_blank">CRAIGSLIST</a> off and on and you may find a good deal. If you want new, Schawb has some pretty good deals. Look at 30 9.50's as an option.

i like the look of the 235/75r15 i run. dont think they look bad at all. they actually measure at 29.25 dia. and 8.9 wide, so its not a huge amount smaller than 30x9.5. may not look as mean a 31x10.5 but looks a thousand times better than stock.

TIRES:

235 75 15 is also a good choice if you are running a 2" lift. its a very common tire size, so there are many options and styles available. Fits on standard rims, no lift required, although some minor trimming of the underside of the front bumper will be needed (~0.5" x 6" strip)..."


where precisely do you need to trim and how major is it? will the trimming be noticed? I'm concered that I might stuff it up ('cause I dont know what to do)
