fender trimming for 245/75/16

Hi,

Would I be able to put on 245/75/16 tires on my 2012 KK (with no lift) by only doing fender/pinchweld trimming? Thanks

You maybe able to but will have no room for flexing etc. Stick with 245-70-16s or lift it, that way it won't be a hack job
You pound over the pinchweld not trim it.

Ok, thanks for the info!

I thought I read somewhere about a way to give yourself a .5" or 1" lift with a simple modification to the vehicle? Or maybe I'm crazy? Perhaps that would be an option for a couple weeks before I get my lift kit?

You can do a clevis or top plate or both for some lift. Downside is tearing down the whole front suspension and then of course getting an alignment . If you're doing it for just a short time its a lot of time plus alignment costs

I'm running 235/75/17 with no lift and its fine. I don't do any aggressive off roading so they're not at full flex but I don't have trouble getting trough a field or tackling small inclines
