Hi all first post to the forum. Its a pretty cool place with a load if info. Thanks for any info that comes out of this thread in advance. So, I am about to pull the trigger on a 2009 SH XT going with the subieliftoz 2/2.5" kit and some stealth 16x6.5 steelies like this -

522132


With I'm hoping 215/65R16 BFG Ko2 or similar mounted up. Just out of interest has anyone here mounted a similar size tyre and been using chains? Need to have this option where I'm based in the mountains here in NZ def two on the front and sometimes all 4 wheels for some of the BC roads. I'd love to just throw the 70/75 on there and be done with it but from what I can see there is no room for anything else clearance wise inside the wheel arch etc.

Thanks, Ross.

You might have a hard time with the taller sidewalls; it isn't a fender issue, so a lift shouldn't really affect it. The problem is more interference with the strut than anything else. 215/65-16 would have a better chance of working with chains that 215/70-16
