Gaining road clearance

We tow an 06 Chev Cobalt and wonder if installing slightly
larger wheels would be feasible? We spend time in the desert
and some roads have high centers.
Thank you

Wheels won't matter, but tire size could help. However, I wonder if you can put a much bigger tire on your Cobalt due to wheel well size restrictions. Keep in mind that even if you can fit a 1" taller tire on your Chevy, it amounts to only 1/2" ground clearance or less.

Had the same with my Neon. Bigger tires/wheels would interfere with the struts so I went with coilovers. This allowed much bigger plus I could dial in the ride height.
