I’m a broke high school kid who can’t afford a truck but I want to go offroading with my buddys and I can afford a set of offroad tires. I have 225/60R16’s right now. Will a 245/70R16 fit with stock suspension? I know it’s a huge difference, like 3” bigger in diameter, but I still want to know.

Honestly a bad idea. Very good chance of tearing something up on your car and then being without any transportation. Ride with a friend.

My 6 year constantly asks why. What adults can learn from 5 and 6 year olds, to listen with your ears and mind open. Hard to learn when you don't listen ......

Is this post serious?
Are you wanting to put off road tires on an Impala and go offroading?

catch a ride with a buddy and be their ride back to town when they break in the middle of nowhere. the impala won't hold up long to that kind of abuse and you'll be walking back to town. you will kill power, gas mileage and put a significant strain on the drivetrain with that much more tire.
