No, If you go to a tire that is 1.5" bigger in diameter, your ride height increase is half that, .75".

This is because only half of the wheel is below the axle and that is all that is relevant...

It's in addition to the $1,000 allowance on 2011s - the $500 celebration rebate can be used in addition to the $750 card mailed last week for a total of $2250 off a 2011, or just $500 off a new 2012.

Same 1000 rebate here in the northeast. The difference for me between a 2011 Overland and 2012 Overland (same options) is only $1600 (including the rebate) so I think I'm just going with the 2012.
