    All depends on the lift height. Search the tire's and wheels threads/section..useful tools to determine tire sizes and such there!!:thumbsup:

    I don't know..have you looked into it? Where are you buying from? What's included? I have a 6 lug and I know there is everything from 1/4 in shim/spacers to....whatever lol. All depends on your cash and what you want. Not sure about 5 lugs but with the 6's once you get above 3in you run into alignment issues and such, gotta get extended brake lines, UCA's, etc. Do your research on what you want and the height you want and you'll be able to make a better choice with your tires!

    Wow, not much info on autoanything for that kit. If it's as pictured it should be fairly easy to install. Rear aal and a spacer for the front.

    The closest match to the tire recommended for that lift on an r15 would be a 245/80/r15. The recommended tire being a 245/75/r16
    [​IMG]
    from the online tire size calculator

    How big of a tire you can get will depend on how much lift you get out of that kit, and there isn't any data. IMO, you shouldn't buy a lift kit without some statement of the lift amount, or at least the average lift amount.

    Huh, oops. I hate metric tire sizes... Honestly, I'd be surprised if you had any real issues running 31x10.5 though.

    I'd still install the lift first, then take some measurements. It's easier to figure out if you know exactly how much space you have to work with. The front is going to be the limiting factor, and a spacer lift doesn't settle.
