Getting the Wheeling Fever
Sounds good. I haven't decided whether to get the 225 or 235 tires yet but either one will look better than stock. When I get them put on I'll post some pictures.

Thanks again

Body Damage is Cool
My personal opinion is that 235's are "too much" specialy if it serves also aw your dayly transport

Fuel consumption had impouved dramaticaly when I swiched from 235/75/15 to 215/75/15 ( difference in wheel perimeter haw been taken into account)

Probably my next tire would be something like 215r 15 or for extreme muddy situations 205r 16!!!

move your cursor over the pic u want,under the pic there is 4 links....copy the 1 that says direct link...on this site in the reply field there is the section that says instant ubb code, click image..paste the direct link in the window that pops up then click ok....if doing multiple pics, press enter so that your new image starts on the next line and repeat the process again...give it a try it should work for you <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />

Need a Spot
OK. So where do I find spacers? I just want a 2 inch lift.

I can't find any lift kits, spacers, custom bumpers,etc, for the sportage. The guys who were making such things are out of business, or no longer make those parts.

I'm at a loss. Please assist.
