Default 96 TXT Getting the look right-lift kit for BB with right wheel/tire combo

Hey all, I've got a 96 TXT that I'm beginning to overhaul. I'm going to be adding a big block down the road so I'm looking at adding the lift kit now, which I understand needs about a minimum 4" lift to fit. The cart will be an On-road only machine and I do not want large gaps between the fender and top of the tires nor do I want the tires to be sticking way outside of the fenders (wider stance) in order to keep a real clean look. My issue is I do not fully understand the wheel tire sizing such as "3+5" etc. As of right now I'm looking at a 4" drop axle lift with 12" wheels and low pro tires 205/30-12. Do you guys think this combo will help me achieve my desired results? Thanks!

First off, WELCOME!

Second, Yes you will need a lift to clear a big block and the lift you are looking at will be a good choice. The 3+5 is the offset of the wheels that tells you where the wheel face is in relation to the width of the wheel. The 205/50/12 tires are going to look really small with a lift. You might want to look at some EFX Fuzion ST tires. They are 23/9.5/12's are would be a better 'fit' for your needs.

Also, if you do not post pics of your project you could be banned; so post some pics!

Thanks for the feedback! I can post some pics where do I post to? So even with a 3" lift 215/50/12 (20.5"OD) wouldn't fill the fenders enough? I just measured my stock tire height and I'm at 17.5" od.

Thanks!

You can post them here in this thread or in the lifted carts section. If you need help, let me know.

A 215/50/12 is a little larger than stock, but would fit without a lift and look right. The original size you posted (205/30-12) is 8.07 inches wide, and only 16.84 inches tall and that would look a little small.
