    Default How much lift a bigger tyre provides

    Hello all, can any of the tyre experts explain how to calculate the lift you get from fitting a bigger tyre, im sure its not as simple as 1 inch bigger tyre equals 1 inch lift....

    1 inch bigger tire will give about 1/2 an inch lift. Give or take a 1/10th based on tire pressure and sidewall stiffness etc
