Have you considered going to 16" wheels
My BFG's are 225 75 16 with a 3" lift
I found a little more tyre choice for 16's

I hadn't thought of that in all honesty I'll have a little look at that.
I guess my quandary is I want a fairly aggressive tire but dont want to be branded as someone who has no regard for the lanes and there up keep as I'm not

I'll just throw my usual pint of gasoline on the fire by saying that here in Norway we tend to like to go wide, especially on the light weight cars.
On my SJ I had 325/60-15 tires. Worked brilliantly for me as the /60 profile made it better handling on-road as well.
It is the tires in my avatar picture.
No way they would fit my jimny unless I cut massively.

I would like better to have wide tires than to mess up the crawl ratio too much with too tall tires.. I would stay with the smaller diameter with 1.3 engine and original gearing. 235's is just for show unless you gear down and/or go 1.6.

Did you get anything sorted in the end?

Lots of good tyres out there these days.

Toyo opencountry MT are great, actually measure the size ordered and run nice and quiet on road/awesome off it. Demon tweeks do a good price on them as well ;-)

Don't know, it was just something I saw on Twitter/Instagram/Facebook. Didn't look into the sizes as I'm happy with the standard Duelers up to now.

I get the thinking behind the side lugs getting you out of the ruts but you had a great deal less weight on a quad.

If a Jimny gets stuck in ruts it is likely grounded on one diff at least, possibly both and or a radius arm mount.

In which case there's far too much resistance for a side lug to overcome.

To get out of the rut you'll need to turn the main tread to grip on the rut.

So whilst I see your theory, I don't think it will work well enough to warrant the expenditure when really what you need is more ground clearance. That means bigger tyres and lower gearing and even more expense. Like I've been through!
