Question about tires

I have a 1996 Splash Supercab, 4X2 and want to put some larger tires on it, but am not sure what I can put on with out a lift. I want to put some 30's or 32's on it. It would be completely for aesthetic benifits, so if a lift were required it would be a body lift, anyway, hope someone can help.

Nevermind I found what I was looking for, think I might just go for a 3" body lift and put some 33's on it.

make sure you go with a bodylift, and a coil spacer fore the front. will give the extra room and level you out.

Thanks for the advice, just had a kid so the mods will be coming slowly, but I'm sure I can get it done.

Yeah I know it's supposed to be a street truck, I just want to lift it some because I hate the way it looks so low to the ground. IMO trucks are supposed to be big. Anyway, found some lifts that replace the coil springs with longer ones, not sure how well this works, I've heard they eventually settle and you lose about half the height they promise. Anyone ever try these?

and I guess too young to read correctly - he said he just 'had a kid' - not that he was one...
