How to Measure for Bigger Tires

Every month we get letters and emails from new 4x4 owners (or should we say owners new to 4x4s?) who want to know what size tire will fit on their truck. Plenty of charts are available to help determine what lift is needed to clear what tires, but what if you want bigger tires without a lift?


There are many reasons to make these measurements yourself. Suspension components can wear out, and maybe you already have a lift and just want new, slightly taller rubber. Taking the time with a tape can show you where to trim body or bumpers in case you'd rather not (or can't afford to) lift your 4x4.
