Default Tire size for 20" wheels and 2" body lift

What tire size will I need for a 2" body lift and 20" wheels? Can 30's fit or am I out of luck with getting that offroad look with 20" wheels?

You could probably run a 245/50/20 or maybe even a 255/50/20. The 255/50/20 is around 30" tall. Personally I'd suggest the 245/50/20 unless you're doing more than the 2" body lift just because the slightly narrower tire will help prevent you from rubbing on the fenders and frame.

That being said, I'm running a 265/70/17 (approx 32" tall) with a 2" body lift and 1.5" suspension and trimmed fenders. Anything is possible; it just depends on how badly you want to do it.

Ok so let's bump this up to 22's.

With a 2" body lift, what size tires can I run?

With a 2" body lift and a w" suspension lift (4" total) what size tires can I run?

Start here: Tire size calculator. Play around with tire sizes until you find a setup that fits what you want. There's writeups in the tech section to help you figure out what lift you need to fit a given tire height. Search is your friend.
