Ok, I have an 05 Nox Lt, love the car but wanna go a style I don't see much on it... push bar, led offroad light bar, space the stock 16 inch rims out an inch or two and I want offroad style tires as big as I can fit on there...I know I can't lift it, so what is the biggest offroad tires I can fit on the 16 inch rims that came from the factory (I want to have the rims powdercoated black or get another set of black rims), use wheel spacers to kick the wheels out a little and make it more aggressive...

here she is now... not bad for 197K and running like a champ!!


cmon guys, help me out with suggestions and pics if you come across something that fits my vision,,, let's do a different kind of build!!
