an alternative choice with low cost, 225/75-16 (29.5") with 2,5 inch suspension lift (keep standar arms etc), 2 inch body lift and a little arch trimming. The tyres are almost 30" but you have a much better fuel consumption than with the 30x9.5-15 and the car remain driveable on road!

I've made this a sticky as requested, given the number of these types of questions we get.

Just to add to the info. with a little mini review of the Kumho KL71 thrown in.



I've been running 195 80 15, Kumho KL71 on a standard UK G13 engined jimny (with Anti Roll Bar) without issues, I would say these are not aggressive mud tires though as the edges are rounded inward like a normal tyre (I've seen some mud tyres that are really knobbly and straight sided, maybe even sticking out a bit) The lack of aggression contributes nicely to the fact that this is 90%+ road car and my daily drive.

It had the (adverse?) effect of "correcting" my speedo, GPS speed, is now clock speed, so I have to keep an eye on the speed!As a result my mpg seems to have dropped, but in reality, it's just clocking less mileage :woohoo: . Its also brought the RPM down about 200rpm on the motorway which makes things more comfortable. Still accelerates like billy'O' under 40 and thus.....

The rear tyres let loose on slippery/dirty/greasy tarmac relatively easily but quite predictably. very heavy braking as heavy as I felt I could (on an empty road) feels good from 70mph, even with a dodgy calliper steering me to one side. No vibration or wobble at all 10mph - 80mph but under 10mph, you feel every knobble of the tire, its fairly noisy!

So that's my mini review of the tyres from user perspective, apparently - they're pretty good all rounders off road, but I'm not experienced enough to comment - I've just never had issues with them so far.

I run 215/75/15 big muds standard height with the new style bumper with no rubbing issues. Although on full lock and fully compressed it's really close like 5mm.

I recently bought a set of 235/75/15 dished wheel and tyres for my jimny with a 2" spacer lift and wheel spacers.......backs fitted nice and snug but the fronts were way too big,im talking loads cutting to front and back of front arches.

Anyway i sold them on,and am still looking for set of aggressive looking tyres and wheels for my jimny....currently looking at a set of 205/70/15 kumo tyres..thats the same size road tyre im using but im thinking its not going to have to desired look im after..am i right in thinking a set of 217/75/15 off road tyres would fit with no rubbing?
