That'll be them.proper good, grip like a limpet way beyond any sensible speed. Not too shabby in a field either.

I would have a look at Yokohama Geolanda's A/T S. We have them on Kates Jimny and they work well on and off road, I think they cost us about £70 each. If you got them in 215/75/15 you will gain a little clearance under the diff too. :)

Jimny JLX Facelift model 2005.
Kashmir Blue Pearl Metallic.
2" lift with Procomp Es1000 shocks.
Diff and transfer box guards from Jimnybits.
215/75/15 General Grabber x3's
and a driver called Allan (1066Boy)

So I have a stock jimny and I'm looking at getting some offroad tyres to put on the standard rims, am I correct in assuming g the largest I can go is 215/75/15? Without a lift or rubbing?
Thanks matt

Yes. New tyres will be ok, remould may catch, especially if big tread pattern. wheel spacers will create rubbing issues so best avoided.

They are expensive! Haha, what's the biggest size remoulds I can put on? I am thinking of giving it a 2" lift in the future but not right away. I took it off-roading standard and was pleasantly surprised! It got round the whole course which was a Land Rover off road course but it can definitely do with more aggressive tyres and protection!
