Be Prepared to do some Brake Upgrades as Well after putting 24" Wheels and Tires on your car! This size wheel/tire combo is going to need some stopping power!
. Also, What kind of car is it your wanting to lift? Your Speedo will be off also with such a Size Dif from stock and will require reprogramming of the PCM.

THATS WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT SOMEBODY UNDERSATANDS. THANKS FOR THE BRAKE TIP,WHAT TYPE DO YOU SUGGEST. IM TRYING TO LIFT A 96 CAPRICE 5.7 350. I HAVE 22'S ON IT NOW WITH NO LIFT AND FROM TIME TO TIME I GET A LITTLE RUB BUT FOR THE MOST PART ITS OKAY. I JUST KNEW IF I UPGRADED TO 24'S I WOULD NEED TO DO SOMETHING. IM LOOKING AT GOING WITH A 305/40R24 WHICH IS ONE SIZE UP FROM A LOW PROFILE,JUST WONDERING IF THE HIGH LIFT COIL SPRINGS WILL WORK WITH THAT SIZE TIRE OR DOES IT HAVE TO BE A LOW PROFILE.

Airshocks maybe? Allows you to lift or lower it pretty easily. Go 30/35 series tires to save a lil bit of space.

Start hacking up the wheelwells also.

Most of us here don't like the look of a lifted CAR with huge rims, but he didn't ask for our opinion about it.
I know that some people are going to their local 4x4 shop and getting lifts done to accomidate large wheels, you might want to try talking to one of those.

The jokes do get old, im surprised no one has said "oil changes will be easier now" HAHA.


but honestly some people need to give it up with the lame jokes about big wheels... I dont go around and making fun of people on 15" steel wheels, which in my opinion looks extremely GAY!!!

Im with you on that one man cause i know my car is for showing off im not really trying to race it. I just want enough horsepower to turnover those 24's as they chop. I guess i started something with the lift question but thats okay, you know what they say "different strokes for different folks". Me personally i want my chevy ridin high!!! FORGET A SUV

another thing is you dont see people who slam there trucks getting made fun of? isnt that the same as lifting a car? they are both oxymorons!!! people just need to open their eyes and appreciate all aspects of car customizing... yea some things people do to there cars might seem goofy but hey its their car their money so move on if you dont like it.

its like they say in elementary school, "if you got nothing nice to say dont say nothing at all"
