I have a Vitara 4U2 and have all the kit required to fit a 2" body lift and 2" Suspension lift, happening in August. I have every intention of fitting 16" steel wheels off a Vitara diesel... My question is this...
What is the maximum M/T tyre size I can safely fit to my Vit after these mods are complete? Was thinking 235/70/R16 might be a safe bet. Could I go 265/75(or 80?/R16 without scrubbage from the rear of the front arches?

Even if someone could advise what they are running on they're 2" body and suspension lifted Vit, it may be enough to work out what I can get away with. I intend to buy tyres in the next couple of weeks!  Twisted Evil

Any help would be gratefully recieved!!  Very Happy
