Those tires sold but Iím looking to strategically buy something good for the long term in October. I have 16 inch rims and 245/75/R16 tires currently. I want to put a 2Ē Terra Firma lift and then upgrade tires and possibly rims. I just donít know how big I can go with the stock wheel well. Ideally I want some tires that are good all around, that will work well off road but not destroy my gas mileage. Any advice helps, thanks

My '00 came with 18" rims and I have 32" tires with a 2" lift seems to work most of the time, only rubs with extreme flex.
