So I finally put in a 3 inch suspension lift, but I still have the stock tires. I want to put in 265x85 tires with 15 inch rims, if I were to do so, would I need to do some fender trimming? How much? Would I also need to remove my slickrock rock sliders that I've already installed, so the tire wont rub? Whats the largest tire that I can put in, without having to trim the fender and without having to put in a body lift, and just having the 3 inch suspension lift

your sliders should be fine if they dont extend into the fender well, you would have had problems before.
I do know that 256-75-16's fit nicely in there, possibly bigger since you have a 3inlift, but not positive. Maybe someone else will chime in. Also, post some pics so we can see what it looks like. Woohoo!

Hey there Rick, what year is your Discovery? The wheel openings on a D2 are larger that those on a D1. I have about 2-1/2" of lift on my 96', which fits 245/75-16 really well, although I've considered 15" wheels to try to fit a wider tire for more flotation on soft surfaces. LRW

I forgot the Driveshaft!

If you still have a rotoflex coupling on your rear driveshaft you will want to keep a close eye on it, as it doesn't take kindly to the lift. I did the driveshaft conversion about 6 weeks after the lift because I lost my second rotoflex. No problems now. LRW
