I've noticed on Jimny Bits website, whilst looking at wheels these spacers that convert the PCD to Land Rover PCD. www.jimnybits.com/wheels-and-tyres/suzuk...spacer-adapters.html

They are 30mm spacers.

So this made me look at Land Rover wheels, but not any old Land Rover wheels! I looked up these steel Mach 5 copies: www.devon4x4.com/challenger-steel-wheel-7x16-gloss-black.html

They are -25mm offset. Which means with the spacers they are 5mm offset. That happens to be the standard Jimny offset.

So you can run these cool wheels and they'll have the standard offset!

The only barrier seems to be the cost! £162.54 + Postage for the spacers and 4 x £96.58 + Postage for the for the wheels and you need to sort out Land Rover wheel nuts too.

That's not an entirely bad idea, I adore mach 5s.

It's not a Jimny. It's my Jimny

Don't forget to factor in the cost of getting a new set of 16" tyres... ;)

Is It Sunday Christmas Yet?

There's a time and a place for posting pornography like that, dirty boy!


Are they actual Jimny fitment and if so where from?

Yes they are Suzuki fitment. 10 inch wide across the beads with a massive offset. No longer available to buy. Originally made by MJ Lee.
They where made for this (if the link works) www.totaloffroad.co.uk/vehicles/suzuki/still-standing-tall/
I saw them for sale fairly local to me years ago with ugly agri tyres on that the then seller thought were the expensive bit. As i was aware of what the rims were and how much they had cost to be made, ( i know Lee who had them made for the vitara) I just bought the super duper agri tyres with the rims pretty much thrown in.
Even though i didn't even own a Suzuki at the time. Sold the agri tyres and put the rims in the lock up .Fast foward 10 years or so and i buy a jimny and my first thought. Get them rims powder coated, Some fat tyres and get them on the jimny.
Always been a fan of the Carlos Fandango look :laugh: :laugh:
