Will a lift be needed on my 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4x4 if I go to larger rims and tires?

Asked by Jan 29, 2013 at 02:03 PM about the 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD

Question type: Car Customization

I want to put on 16 inch rims mounted with LT245/75R16 tires.  Overall diameter is 30.5 inches. Section width of the tire is 9.8 inches.   Will I need to lift my vehicle to add this wheel/rim combination?   If so, how much lift will I need? Thanks, Stan

ya either a lift or a fender flare kit. you might be able to get away with a budget boost lift which are really cheap compared to other lifts. im running 31s and i got a 3.5in lift with plenty of space. the fender flare cut out kits also an option. google for prices

you can probably get away with just trimming the fenders i work at a tire and wheel place ive seen some big stuff fit on jeeps

you could do a small body lift if your going to be a wimp and not just do a suspension lift like a man.
