Got two quotes. Not looking good.

I do have a 5th tire, new as well, so that's additional shipping charge

Yes, that was just the tires. The weight of the wheels was not included in those quotes! And those are just the shipping costs.

At this time, it might be better/ cost effective to get some new tires. Maybe those 27s and make them work with a small lift.

Thanks for looking, yep I can get the 4 27's for 600 installed and balanced so no savings on yours. Too bad I like the bfgs a little better than the grabbers.

That's pretty good price.

These are the prior gen KO2s (or KOs?). I have the Grabbers on my Jeep and they look very similar. Biggest difference is on the side knobs.

I'm liking both okay, but would prefer the newer tires with the beefier sides :)

Yep. I ran grabbers on an XTrail and liked them enough but found the bfgs a little better on the toyota I had those on

Looks like you’re definitely taking the time to do some quality work with the modifications! Can’t wait to see picture of the Yaris all lifted up and rolling!
I’ve searched high and low for used xD suspension for a bit of lift with no luck, stealership wants ~$900cad for strut assemblies and shocks unfortunately.

Try a fully assembled Munroe unit from partsource or something. May be cheaper. It's a good option for the front. I never looked into it personally. But worth a shot. And you'll get new shocks that way too.

Yeah I looked into those briefly, I can’t find anyone that sells the springs for the rear aside from Toyota/Scion.

YarMatey, I got a full set of shocks and struts from Rockauto.com KYB which is the best aftermarket as they make the OEM Toyota. I didn't look to see if they had the XD but they are hands down the cheapest you'll find them.

Maritime, I do recall looking on rockauto but they only had Monroe and they weren’t much cheaper than the OEM ones. But I think I’ll have to order some from somewhere as the xDs aren’t popular where I live at all.

Yeah I was surprised there weren’t cheaper versions offered for the xD either, maybe it has something to do with them only being a US model from 08-10? Who knows haha.

I don't think the xd was popular in Canada at all, no matter where you live lol

I don't know if it was popular in the US, either. I rarely ever see them on the road. I see tons of yarises and XAs, though.

Yeah I don’t think I’ve ever seen one in person here aha. I wonder if a cheap set of coilovers set at their highest setting would provide any lift at all...?
