Hello everyone, I bought the new Jimny a while back and I've recently been considering getting a new set of tyres for it. But I do have some concerns. Can someone that has changed the tyres help my by answering a few questions?
1) did the grip on the wet get any worse? how about dry roads?
2) what measures did you choose?
3) did the consumptions rise significantly?

thank you in advance 

PS: not to sound rude but im only interested in reviews of aftermarket tyres in the new Jimny

Most premium tyre manufacturers have an offering that will be better in most cases than the factory Bridgestone especially if you want to focus on one particular terrain rather than having an all round compromise. Bigger heavier tyres will to varying degrees affect performance and consumption but that's the price for a more specialised tyre. I have bf Goodrich on my gen3 and they beat the factory tyres with a big stick.

Temeraire (2018 quasar grey automatic)
The last of the gen3s, probably.

If you're going for a more off-road-centric type of tyre (A/T, M/T), then they're almost certainly going to offer less grip on-road in both wet and dry conditions.

They're also likely to be heavier due to more rugged construction, especially if you increase the size. This will reduce fuel economy.

In my experience, going from stock Bridgestones to Yokohama AT in 215/75, fuel economy suffers by 3 or 4 mpg and grip isn't quite as good in the wet.

I went from standard Bridgestone to Yokohama Geolandars. Superb tyres but lost about 3 or 4 mpg.

What size & tread pattern were the Geolandars?

I drove on the stock tyres for 26k miles.
I changed to the yokohama geolanders in stock 195R15
I've now done a litlte over 4k miles on these and found them to be excellent.
I drive the car quite vigorously and the car seems to have more grip and better handling than the bridgestones. The bridgestones always felt a bit skittish although they were always predictable.
Very pleased with the yokohamas :D
