newb question on tires
ok, so i have a 05 se, completely stock suspension. whats the biggest size tires i can slap on it to improve ride hieght but keep my current rims and turn radius? i was thinking of 235/75/r15 but if i can go bigger, please let me know. i wanna get rid of the 215's that are on it now.

31's would probably be best...its not gonna make a huge difference in ride height though

Go with 31's like bigjeep said. You could squeze more under there with a simple BB for just a couple of hundred dollars.

ok, so i can slap 31x10.50 tires under my stock rig without any problems? ok, heres another question, im on a limited budget and was thinking of going with a 1 inch body lift or maybe just going with the spring spacers. has any of you ever dealt with the spacer lifts?

yep you can fit them fine...i run 32's on mine and took it off road 2 days ago i think and didn't rub at all...and took it the day before that and only rubbed once at full flex...and i think that was because i came at a wrong thats why i didn't rub the next day (same spot)...hmmm you can get a BB (budget boost) for under $300 which will give you new shocks, bumpstops, and spring spacers...i would go with a spacer lift over a body lift as it will be a suspension lift lifting everything and not just the body and it's not much more and it looks better and you shouldn't have vibes (if so it would be very slight) with just a BB.

I just got my skyjacker 2" lift kit installed (spacers/shocks). Driving feels the same or even better and it looks awesome. Looking into getting bigger tires soon. I think either 31's or 32's. I have 30x10.50's right now with maybe 20k on them.
I paid about $240 for the lift kit on quadratec. You may find them cheaper on ebay.

You can definitely fit 31X10.5-15 on the stock 15X7 rims. I think that equates to 255\70R15. I tried out a set of my buddy's 31's last night on my stock X and it looked great. Fit like a glove. Biggest problem was giving them back.
