So... I might have got a little ballsy and created the "first" (possibly) lifted Corolla Cross AWD. It's just 1.5" but every inch counts right? haha pictures don't do it justice but when just the front was done I definitely had the Carolina Squat going on.

Yes, it does affect speedo and it also affects fuel economy and overall speed since they have more rotational mass and are heavier it takes more power to move them.
Speedo definitely. Going to any size different than factory will throw off your speedo. MPG though can be affected just from going to one tire brand to another or from a performance to all season or all terrain etc..

When I was getting tire for my truck I was between two brands. Both MTs and both same size and the difference was 4 pounds per tire

What did you use to life it?

Trust me, those small numbers make a huge difference. With your lift you could probably get close to a 1" larger tire for a 2.5" lift in total.
I used (don't laugh at the name lol) Prius Offroad's 1.5" Corolla Lift Kit. As far as going up a tire size I am not going to (for at least a little bit) seeing as I put brand new Nitro Dura Grappler ATs on it at 1k miles but do like the added ground clearance. I was worried I went too big because after jacking the car up and doing the lift then sitting it back down...it sat up wayyy high. After driving around though the suspension settled out. Here is the pic of it right after it was completed before driving it.

Ok, super lame question here. My elderly parent doest not like getting into my Cross as it sits too low. What is the best way to raise the height? Seat jackers, lifting the car, or larger tires. This issue is a big deal in my life right now..unfortunately.

I am surprised to find they think it is too low. I sat in an XLE just the other day and did not feel I had to climb out of it. Do you have an LE? Does it have smaller tires than XLE. ?

My Cross is the XLE and most definitely the seat sits lower. My mom is a tiny lady, but I used to drive a truck. She was able to lift herself up with no issues. Now she is sort of "plopping" down, the cushions move in the process...and it's really an issue. This is my only regret buying the Cross. I wish I had taken her w/me when I purchased it. Mom is very feeble and elderly.
