For anyone that is interested I am about to prove to the doubting Thomases that you can easily lift a Sportage and fit decent shoes on them. Total cost $550 (2.5" lift springs and shocks) and $1250 for 5 31x10.5R15 'pedes on F100 white spoke steelies (new).

Picking up the Simex Centipedes on either Sat or Mon. Can't wait.........

Spring lift is from Ironman Suspensions in Clayton Vic. Hasn't been tested properly yet (next W/E Werribee 4WD training course - with 'pedes!!!)). My vehicle was the "test mule" so we are still playing with rates particularly in the front, back is pretty well sorted.

Rears went in without a hitch. Fronts require trimming of the plastic flare work around the lower edges near the sill, and the front bumper (expected). Got the rear part of the flares done today, but working on a black painted concrete driveway in full sun in this heat is no fun. Do the front bumper trimming tomorrow....time for a beer.
