well if i am correct 315's are close to 35's so I would say maybe a 3" kit but most 3 do not fit that size so I would say 4 to 6......

315 is not a tire size. Its the width of the tread in mm from edge to edge. The next number is the percent of the first number

Example: 265 - about 10"

So a 265 75 r15 is ten inches wide with a 7.5" side wall and the last number is the rim dia.

So 10" wide + 7.5" side wall (x2) + 15" rim gives you a 30" x 10" tire size.


Change the second number to 50 and you now have a 25" tire with 10" width

Beermonkey,
Wow, wheels look great, look like OEM but black.....Are they just painted? What make/model of rims are those?
Do you like your stubby bumper? What kind are you running?
Great Rescue Green too...
Thanks,
Andy
