Looking for some insight into what are the biggest tires I can fit under my 2001 Pathfinder.  I'm thinking about doing a 2" or 3" lift and was wondering what size tires would fit without having to do any trimming on the bumper or fenders.

 

Thanks

If you don't want to do ANY trimming you're pretty much limited to 31's. If you're willing to trim a little bit to allow for turning you can do 32's.

265/70R16 fit fine under mine with the 2 inch AC lift springs.

What needs to be trimmed?

Not sure what needs to be trimmed on the bumper since I have a custom one, but on the fender I needed to cut a piece off of the bottom edge where the rocker panel is. If you get a chance to test fit tires that would be best, you can easily see what needs to be cut once you have them on.

Also keep in mind wheel backspacing for strut clearance. 265/70/16 will clear the strut. 265/75/16 will sometimes clear and sometimes hit depending on the tire brand and how aggressive the tread is. Anything bigger will require either wheel spacers or new wheels with less backspacing.
