Can I lift the Wildcat?

I am looking to replace the tires on my 2013 Wildcat from 235/80-16 tires to 235/85-16. Now the over all size difference on the circumference is 1" which mean I need an extra 1/2" clearance on each side of the tire.

It will be close given suspension travel at a couple of points. I notice that the shackles have a lower and upper bolt hole. Currently the shackles are bolted in the lower position, if I move the shackle up to the upper position which is about an inch + higher will I notice any real lift in the fifth wheel as far as tire clearance goes.

you should send Wildcat Chris a PM, since he's a Wildcat rep and very active in the Wildcat sub-forum.
