    Can someone explain here pls?

    Are we replacing just the stock tyres, or both with the wheels?

    Can the tyres be modified, while the stock wheels are in place?

    Will try my best.
    Sounds like many in this thread are increasing ground clearance or ride height by replacing the existing tires with other tires of a greater width / aspect ratio. One mentioned increases in height by using coil over shocks, others with rear air springs, and some have tried placing rubber blocks or spacers in the springs (pretty sure there was another option that I missed).

    No (but I could be wrong). You must first remove the wheels from the vehicle before mounting any tires.
