there is no lift that requires you to have bigger tires...u put a lift on to make room for bigger tires...not the other way around

now to not look weird id just do a torsion crank and an add a leaf

no you dont have T bars. You dont really have any options on this with your size tire. My advice. Run the tires down, all the while saving money for a suspension lift and 33s
