    Best tyres for 1" lift

    I am a trail runner, so need to get into a few trail heads and although the XV is fine for most of it,
    I am going to get a 1" strut lift as my tyres are due to be replaced and I want to do them together.
    What tyre would suit a 1" lift on the standard 17" rims.
    Thanks.

    Soon : 1" lift with BFG tyres.

    After speaking to my local stockist, we have narrowed it down to 2 tyres:
    1. 225/60r17 Geolander ATS (27.6" height)
    2. 225/65r17 Geolander ATS (28.5" height)
    The standard tyres at 225/55r17 have a 26.7" height.
    With the 1" lift, would the taller 65's fit, or am I best just going with the 60's.
    Thanks.
