Just about to do a lift in a few weeks so I'm currently looking for tires! We're going to be doing the 6 lug conversion.. Can't wait!! Wondering what kinda tires I should be looking for.. I know they can be 6 holes for Toyota and Chevy's, just not sure on the width..

Can anyone guess that 235/70/15's would be too big? Wondering if these tires would rub in the wheel well? 

 

I have a set of 15" turbine rims that will fit, just looking for rubber now...

NO! Not unless you want to cut the wheel wells and I mean fairly generously! I recently did a 4" lift on my 82' Brat and a 6 lug conversion with 15" rims and the biggest tire I could go with was a 205 / 70 / 15 = 26.4" in total height. Looks good and still a decent amount of clearance!

My 4" lifted brat is currently sporting 235/75R15 size tires.

 

The bottom of my front fenders are trimmed to a sharp point, (the bottom of which meet the leading edge of my front doors.)  

 

Wheel liners are off and in the garbage where they belong.

 

I had to beat the unibody wheelwells back so far that it was necessary to unbolt and reposition my doors. :zzz:

 

Can be done, but youre gonna want the BIG hammer.  :eek:

27x8.50x14 fit OK with wheel with a big offset.  Only a tiny bit of rubbing on the fronts by the door.  A closer to stock offset would keep the rubbing down.

Looking great guys, thanks for the info!!!

 

I'll try for the 205 / 70 / 15's and go from there.. Here are the the rims I picked up!!! Tires are 235/70/15's so I should find something smaller till I feel ready to start cutting!
