Hello allI am a new member who has a passion for his Sportage.
I hope I have this post in the right place.
I joined because I need some advice on tyres types.


I have a 2010 Sportage this is my second, the last one I had for 6 years from new. I use the Sportage off road a lot.



I have 4 new 245x70x16 the originals are 235x60x16. I brought these on the advice of a tyre fitter I know.

When we fit the new tyres they catch on the front arches the bulkhead and a metal bar at the front bottom of the arch it is only slight contact but enough not to fit them.

I would like to know if any body has the information as to whether there is a lift kit that can be fitted to raise the motor enough to give clearance

Thanks in advance
Regards
Westcannock

Hi and welcome,

Do you need the tyres to be that size, why were you advised to go bigger? Due to you off roading? 10mm isn't a lot but if it's rubbing surely the original size would be fine.
Hope you get it sorted.
