    what is the biggest size tire that can be tucked under a wagon, and is they a way to lift the front up to add up with the back. I thought of puting some bf goodwrench all terrain tires on my car when it gets fixed.

    Hmm... Well, I dunno about off road tires, but the biggest I've seen on an Escort is 17" rims, I'm assuming the tire wasn't more than an inch in sidewall height. I'm not sure anybody MAKES a lift kit for the escort...

    well... depends on what you are looking for. I'm guessing you could lift it with some interesting fab work. what are you trying to do with it? for rock crawling and true offroad driving you want a taller tire. wheel hight doesn't matter as much because you want the sidewalls to flex. generally you run 8-10psi of air as well. Now if your talking highspeed rally type driving you would be better off leaving the stock hight and getting some under body protection along with some good rally style tires. Kumho makes some nice ones. probably a hell of a lot cheaper than those BFGs as well.

    I personally wouldn't go any bigger than 185/65/14s (the original size is 175/65/14s)

    Canadian tires sell rubber stopers for lift kits ... jam them in the coils

    about 20$ for 4 (2 wheels)
