Hey snofool, why dont you just trim it up a bit? I think that size tire looks good on there. Nice proportions...

I'm thinking about buying some 15" pug alloys for my unlifted ea82 4wd, what size of tires will fit with no mod (if any)?

Probably something like a 195/55/15 or 185/60/15.  Even then those are around and inch taller assuming your stock tire is a 175/70/13

2" SJR lift with 27x8.5R14 (General Grabber AT2) tires, 14" Pug steelies. No rubbing unless you're at the extremes of the suspension, but I've also hammered my front fenders quite a bit.

Sorry for not really adding anything to the thread but I got a offset/back spacing question for y'all.

I just took my SJR lift kit off and am just on forester struts and I still have my 235s on. They stick out way to far for my liking. Wondering if anyone knows what a good backspacing would be for a little bit of poke. Right now over half the tire is past the fender. My wheel specs are 15 x7 3.75 backspace with 1" adapters. I want at most 1 inch of poke. There are some options on summit racing I just don't what what backspace to get

I am doing a 2" lift on my loyale and am looking at new tires but I can't figure out what will fit. Lots of people say they have 27" with no rub on a 2" and others say they have rub from 27" on a 3" lift.

Why the difference? Offset? What would the ideal offset be? Or is it from saggy suspension?

They were 195/75/14s. No idea on the brand of tires.
