Re: bigger tires

As of right now no one makes a lift kit for the Nitro im sure there will be one in the future. And as far as larger wheels go....... your local dealer should be able to change the settings in the computer to compensate for the larger over all diameter. Its all electronic now and calculated by the computer. Its like changing the little gear on the end of the spedometer in the transmision in the old trucks.

Question Tire Size Question

I saw the threads on here about lifting the Nitro and the “body mods” needed to clear larger tires in the front wheel well.
I also saw I would be able to run 30.5 X 10.5 X17 tires, after modification.

My question is what size is the LARGEST tire I can run. I see on the adds for Daystar lifts they advise a 245 x 70 x 17.
If I used a different offset wheel, could I go with a 265 X 70 X 17? Or what about after the Body mods, could I run the 265’s or even wider?

And last but not least, how do I compare tire sizes? I see sizes such as 245 X 70 X17, and then I see them measured in inches like : 30 X 10 X 17. How can I convert between the two?

Thanks in advance for any help,

Ethan

I've used some tire size calculators and my choice is most likey going to be 265-40-R22. You might be able to go bigger but it might rub

Widest Available Tire on stock 20" rim

Hey guys, looking to get a little bit better stance on my Nitro. I don't want to lift it or anything like that, just get a little wider tire, so it sticks out of the fender a little more than now. I was wondering what the widest tire possible to put on a stock 20" rim is. After some calculations I found that a 275/45R20 would work well as far as keeping the circumference of the tire the same, however I'm not sure if that will fit on the stock rim. Let me know. Thanks
