Re: What tire size for a 2" daystar lift?

Hi- I also have a 2" daystar lift. I believe that Daystar recommends up to a 31" tire with no other modifications (bolt trimming, spacers, etc)...

Re: What tire size for a 2" daystar lift?

I just threw on some 265/70/17 trail grappler muds and I effing loooooooooooooooooooooooooove them!!! No rubbing at all and not much for street noise! I wanted to do 285 but it was too much for me! 265 will DEF fit!

Good luck
