28" is my choice, and some drilled chevy rims. They are way beefy. US Wheels 70 series are only $25 each brand new. And brand new wheels are soooo nice to look at. Just my opinion.
Im going to seconds GD's opinion. I got US Wheel 70 series, with 28.5x8.5 Interco Swampers on my hatch, and they just look beautiful. New wheels and big beefy tires are just a sight to see . Plus, at $25 a rim, for new rims, you cant go wrong.

Very nice tire. I was able to find a local tire shop that had a set laying around. Even after a round trip off-road adventure to Seattle and back. Then another Trip to Oregon to wheel with GD, they still have plenty of tread left for more wheelin
I stuck with 4x140mm lug (standard lug pattern) so that I can use standard Subaru wheels if I ever need to. It's saved my rump roast more than once. The Rims are 14" peugeot Alloys. 14" steel is better for more abusive off-roading.

The lift itself gains you little hight. What the lift is enabeling you to do is put on bigger tires. This is where you gain seriouse clearance from ground to lowest point. With those 30"s on I had 12" lowest point clearance in the rear and 11" up front. Haven't measured it with the 29"s on yet.
For rims I had money at the time and a good contact. Threw down $150 for a set of 15" steels. I went with steel so they wouldnt dent as easy and would be easier to repair when I do beat them up. I've dented alloys before and it was tough getting it repaired.

14x5 (was a spare from under the 505)
14x5.5 (holes have a raised edge around them)
14x6 (holes are "flat")
14x5.5 (I believe)
pug 15" Steels have been found as:
no slots (spare)
not sure on widths....
the flat spoke 15" pug alloys are 15x6 (or the dreaded 390mm)
not sure about the other pug alloys...

I also have to agree on those US Wheels, I myself went with the 75 series for the looks as well as the price. 35$ a piece. Does anybody know the width of the 14 and 15" Pugs?
14 alloy are 6 inches wide.

WOW Northguy!!! THATS A STEAL!! Almost makes me wanna buy up another set of these tires before they discontinue them.
I almost bought a set of them. Nice tread pattern and good price usually. Around here I couldnt find them for a very good price tho Would have had to order them and pay shipping! Grrr.
