in the ny metro area just picked up my first tb this week white '04 ls and will be lookin for advice in the future. It has brand new (literally)discover at3's on it there only 245/65/16's anyone think this will look ridiculous with liftmeister 2.5 liftlevel kit? Or can i get by for a while with minimal ridicule.

thanks,
dave

No doubt, it will look silly. But that will be your motivation to eventually upgrade the rubber. Hey, it will still look less silly than it does now!

that is smaller than stock isn't it?
I'm running a 255/70/16 with 2.5 inches and it doesn't look bad. Unsure if the width of the tire helps that or not.

Are you sure they are only 65s? stock was 245/70/16 or 235/75/16. Those sound awfully small. Post up a pic, you may want to look more into what all was done to that suspension.

Stock tire size on mine is 245/65/16 that's what it had on it and what the door sticker says.

Are you sure? 245/65/16 is not a regular size, no tires are made in that size. You made me go look it up Rory. :D I even went to look at the Cooper site to see if the AT3's came in it and they don't. Which goes back to me saying the stock 16" tires are 235/75/16 and 245/70/16. In a 17" you could have 245/65/17.

Hey fellas,

I'm sure no one knows who I am on here. I was really big into the OS a couple of years ago then I started college and had 18 hours my first semester plus a job and I never really got on this site or the OS after that.
Right now I don't have a computer, someone stole it, it was a laptop. I just ordered a new one and for the past couple of days have been using a computer at work to sort through what I've missed on this site. Once I get this computer I'm ready for the knowledge to pour.
