I have King Springs (~1.4" lift) on it with 3/4" rear & 1/2" front spacers. I'm also using SG struts for more room in the back (spring perch is higher than on the SF strut).That is snug, but looks good. Are you running 1" spacers all around and taller springs?
By no means am I going to pretend I'm an expert at offroading, but from what I have read, having a taller sidewall allows for more grip on rocks/sand when you lower the air pressure of the tire. I believe it also gives more cushion between the hard surface you're driving on and your rim (think about offroading with a low profile tire, yikes). I think the cushoning benefit comes from increasing the tire's compressibility by lowering overall pressure inside the tire, while still keeping the rim and sidewall protected.I don't want to hijack the thread but I was wondering about taller sidewall tires. Since our '03 XS uses 215/65/16s I was wondering if the taller sidewall just gave more cushioning for off road since there is more air volume in the tire? Do you run the same PSI? Just a simple answer - no hijacking - thanks!
Here's my opinion of the KM2's:hate to bring this back from the dead but ha=ow did the KM2's work out for you?did you "have" to change the rear struts to the SG's or would it have cleared without?Also were the wheel spacers necessary ?
