27-29in mud tires under my 90 legacy wagon.

The 90 Leggy wagon in question has many many miles and is beaten. "Massaging" the fenders is an option . Legacies, Imprezas, and Foresters all seem to get different gains from the same parts. Getting 10 inches or more of clearance at the diffs is what I would like. "Noticeably lifted" and effective is the goal. Nerf bumpers aren't out of the question, either. I'd like to avoid a body lift, too. Reading about them ripping out of the chassis doesn't make me trust them. 6in. lifts are sick but appear problematic and hard to come by. That trick of moving the bottom shock bolt to the top of the spindle looks a litte unsafe, though it would add that sky-jacked feel I'd still love to have out of the car. The tires don't appear to clear that bolt trick either.
What really are my options? Fitting something like these tires below-but correctly sized-are what I'd like to do.

This kind of tread pattern is what I was looking for. A big lift would be nice, but I was hoping to be able to do just enough to get a tread pattern like that underneath it. Even if I had to coax it by fender trimming, I'd be cutting off rusty metal anyway It needs struts regardless of what I put on it. It needs them now...well, right after it passes emissions and gets tags . Snow tires will get it around, but these struts have to go.

I've been working on a lift since late november, there is basically no support and I've already got the tallest struts made
