How stupid will it look - 225/75/r15 and 3.5" lift.

I have enough saved up for the lift, but wont be able to swing tires and wheels for a while, so my question is how dumb is it going to look running stock tires?

IMO very, very dumb. id either save the money, or buy the lift and keep it stored until you can buy tires

Ok, not as horrible as I thought it would be.

I can live with that for a few months.

It may look at little dumb, but it'll be kinda fun as you'll be able to look at it everyday and be able to compare it to what it used to be.

what size tire are you putting on it? a 31?

it'll look pretty much the same on a 3.5" lift.

grab a set of 5x4.5" on 5x5" spacers and run some JK take offs. thats roughly a 32. looks really decent on ZJs

Just inflate your tires to 80 psi, they'll be a little bigger

Sent from my iPhone using JeepForum so it probably looks goofy.
