i have 215/75/r15's on both my lifted rigs, both are 2" lift. one has puegeot rims the other is standard chevy 6 lug steelies.
I had to trim a little on one and massive ammounts on the other. main reason was the rims and tires. while the tires are the same size number, the mud terrains have much more aggressive tread, they are almost 2" taller. With the wide offset, most of the full turning circle was still there, but the fenders were trimmed alot and the fire wall was beat inward quite a bit.
the other car has snow tires on Peugeot rims. barely had to trim at all, just a little off the corners of the wheel wells.. the rear I trimmed out because of rust. not for the rims
It also sits about an inch lower because its a turbo.
Here's the non turbo with the mud terrains.
And here's the turbo with snow tires...its my baby
The turbo, has a lower ratio transmission than stock so it's barely affected by the bigger tires. gas mileage is still 25mpg or so in town
the non turbo grey car is carbed and not happy with those big tires, gets about 18mpg in town. and it is slow,really slow.
turbo highway mpg is about 30-32
non turbo highway mpg is about 26mpg in fourth, 5th is useless, barely holding 65, it doesn't like hills lol
If you dont want to trim, 185/75/r14's fit well. here's a pic with the rear lifted and the front stock, with those tires.
