Default Tires Lift Hell...Help!

Wow I feel like a ping pong ball...My tire guy says just put a 235/75 R15 on my truck and it will give it an inch more height and a bit wider tire It came with 225/70 R15 on it? Anyone ? should I try this or lift the front 2 inches first?

Not sure what your end goal is here but regardless of what it is go with the 235's. If your looking for height go even bigger!

Just want to give the truck a little more of a not so squashed city look..If that makes sense. I live in cowboy country and drive alot of dirt. 2wd is fine but need a bit more tread etc...WIll 235/75 mess up my drive train or change anything drastically other than gas MPG adn a little pseedometer issue?????

You'll be fine. I spoke to my tire shop about this. I recommend Cooper discoverer atr's they are pretty affordable and look great in that size.

Thanks a ton. So probably will not notice and difference in acceleration being robber either I hope. They can't be that much heavier I am guessing.??
