So I see on here that a few people run 27" tires with a 2" lift and don't have to trim or bash at all. Anyone have any info on that? I want to make sure before I make a wheel and tire purchase. I do not want to do any trimming, and definitely no bashing, but want to fit 205 75 15 tires with a 2" lift. If anyone has any insight, please let me know! Thanks

I should add, this is on an EA82

hey guys lookin for a lil help here. i recently lifted the ea82 with a 4"SJR and am trying to find good tires for it. I got a good deal on some 15" wheels so all im missin is the rubber. I see alotta you guys runnin tsl's and ssr's and ext's and all/mud terrains and the like. where are you all acquiring these tires?? I am havin alotta trouble locating any aggressive tread thats smaller than 31"....... I hear I can fit up to about a 29" but would like more of a 26-27 range so that the ea82 can still turn em. I know we don't want too much discussion on this page so feel free to just PM me any info. thank you
thoughts?
answers?
thanks guys!

dont have any good pics of mine, but mine ends up being a 6 inch SJR lift, 235/75/15 tires, 1.5" spacers stock 15" rims, they only rub on full lock and max compression

 

Ordering 29x8.5x15 Swampers here this week.   Going to be adding 2-2.5" of lift to the rear and another half inch or so up front.  Trying to get the car to sit level with my big speaker box in the back lol

ok dont know if anyone is still reading this thread, luv it by the way. I finally got my 96 legacy. so excited. I ordered a set of new KYB GR2 outback struts for front and rear but I am still trying to find out what

the ideal tire size is with the 2" lift the strut swap gives. I either want 215/60/15 or 225/60/15 but not sure if the 225s will mess with the cvs or not. Any input would be great. Thanks guys.

Boss 2in lift impreza coil overs in front. 225/65/16. With no trimming they are too big. Cannot turn full lock and in the bumps they will rub. I'm guessing 205 70 16 will be what I end up running. The last picture is with the engine in it. I need to extend the coilover a bit more.Attached File  IMG_4855.jpg   144.05K   121 downloadsAttached File  IMG_4856.jpg   239.49K   143 downloadsAttached File  IMG_4857.jpg   145.25K   150 downloads
