    I recently swapped out my 14 cm for a 16 and after having that one for 3 years completely stock I've decided I have to do some minor mods to the 16. So I'm looking for so help from a pro owner. And this may have been covered somewhere else in a tread but couldn't find any. Would a owner please measure the height at the most common spots wheel wells and hitch. I would like just to get to pro height nothing crazy I only average 3-4K a year on the truck so I dump a ton off money in my vehicles anymore but I would like to finally do a small lift. I was checking them out and I was thinking either 5100s or a Lrt kit an want no higher than pro.
    Thanks for your help.

    I have only replaced the tires...only increasing the width not height unless you factor in different manufacturers.
    Went from Michelin P275/65/18 to Terra Grapplers LT285/65/18

    The middle number of the tire size (the 65), is called the aspect ratio. If you go with a wider tire and leave the aspect size the same, you will have a taller tire. 285 * .65 > 275 * .65

    My pleasure,

    Let me know if you need any other measurements.

    This. 65% of 285 is greater than 65% of 275.

    :thumbsup:I worked at a tire shop for a couple years before I joined the War Cult. The "Euro Metric" tire measurement system is goofy and requires a calculator to know how tall a tire actually is.

    It makes sense now that you and @mdavis explained it. I had a rather simplistic notion of tire sizes.

    Thanks!
