    I have a 93 x, and im soon getting a 2" suspension lift, made my SkyJacker. I was wondering how big o' tires i could fit on it after the lift. And does anyone want a set of almost new Goodyear AT/D p23575r15 's they only have 3000 miles, and loads of tire shine. 200 takes all.

    Easily 31s. 32s most likely, but with a bit of trimming.

    i see you have a 93 xlt. so you're in the same situation as i was. I have a 3 inch lift with 33s Its very close

    I had to trim the back of the front fenders with a dremel. It gets tricky at the bottom where there is 2 bolts and 2 plastic bolts because for me it was triple layer. It also takes time and patience. Turn the tires (in park of course) and see how close it gets. A popped tire is a bad tire :rolleyes:

    If on stock wheels 33x9.5 or 10.5s will fit, probably better than 32x11.5s.

    I am thinking about getting Bridgestone Dueler M/T's 32x10.5x15. Will those fit nicely w/ 2" lift?

    I could only find 32x11.5 here in town. So that is what i am getting. Will they fit enough so that i can drive home and do some trimming? They seem huge, and i want them to fit. I am just concerned about getting home, and not cutting any metal. Thanks

    I put on 33x12.5 before I did any trimming. So yes, you can put them on and be careful until you get home. Don't turn sharply or go over 5 mph on large bumps. You'll hear it if you rub. All that will happen if you rub is that you'll mark and/or bend the metal you need to trim, and also take some small chunks out of the shoulders of your tires. Those shoulders would probably be worn down the first time you go offroad anyway.
