Most larger tire sizes will need some cutting of material from the wheel well also, so you'll want to include that factor in your chart.
My 265/75/16's fit with OME 913 rear coils. Some call 913's a 1" lift, others call it a 2" lift, I'd say it's closer to 2".
So, 2nd gen rodeo, 2" lift fits 265/75/16 (some trimming required).

It also depends on the wheels. An aftermarket wheel with 3.75" back spacing might require trimming but a 4" back spacing might not. A stock wheel might only need trimmed inside the wheel well where as an aftermarket one might need the fender trimmed as well.

I know Mikes '01 rodeo needed trimming inside the wheel well as well as some trimming of the bottom of the fenders and front bumper to fit 32x11.50-15 on aftermarket wheels with 3.75" backspacing and 3" lift.

I think we can make another chart for what will fit with no lift but trimming too. and thanks to whom ever has been updating my original chart. thats going to make it alot easier to read when someone looks at it. thanks again for the help guys. I hope to see it completed one day.

Also make the list conservative for those who don't want to cut or rub.
My experience 1ST GEN TROOPER....15'x8" wheel with 3.75" or 4" back spacing=31x10.50x15....stock or 32x11.50x15....with 1.5"-2" lift.
2000 2ND GEN TROOPER w factory flares....15"x8" wheels with 4.5"-4.75" backspacing(some 15" wheels won't clear rear brake calipers)=32x11.50x15....with 2"lift. Should be legal with flares(tread doesn't extend past flare, sidewall maybe a little)

alright. I will do the bold on the names. also I will get the rest of the info put in. I was going to try to make this conservitive so if anything up on the list is going to require any trimming I will put it on there that it requires such or if you know the tire size that will fit I will put that on there. Thanks for the help guys. Im hoping this thread will make it alot easier for everyone to find what they need a little easier when it comes to tires. And for the rim issue, I was going with the factory rim set as the mark of what to look for on tires. I will continue on this list and try to make it easy for everyone to read. I will try to make the rim issue a part of it too so I will work on that as well and try to make that part just as easy to read.

that's probably because super swampers are almost always true deminsion, where all other tire manufacturers like goodyear run a little smaller than what is printed. ie 31" tires are usually at most 30.5" even new, except interco tires.

FYI - to add to your growing chart...I saw a 1st generation Rodeo with NO lift running 285/75 R16's, I actually stopped the guy at a red light to ask him personally.

Looked SWEET!

I have 265/75 with Trooper springs (should be similar to 913s) and no trimming. I did have to get creative with a BFH and a prybar, but never once cut into the metal. :D

Ok, this might be a silly question, but alas I am a noobie (to this board anyways). What are the year breaks for the 1st and 2nd generation of Rodeos, Troopers, and Amigos? Could this be added to the list as well?

Thanks.
