Looking at the various online pictures, the wider track is because the wheels have another 17mm of offset each, the centre of the alloy looks a long way from the rim. (Bye-bye wheel bearings)


Is it not the other way round? Changing from an offset of 5 to 22 would reduce the track? If you want to increase the track then you normally go to negative offsets. Therefore, if anything, your wheels from your existing car will sit further out.

This assumes the new Jimmy has an offset of 22 though.....


I assumed (perhaps wrongly), that the 22mm was a negative offset, if the standard wheels are only 5mm. I'll get a stick to mine tomorrow.

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)

You can get General Grabber AT3 in the new size, at £80 a corner...:)

The AT3 is an all season tyre, and the wet grip is very poor. (E)

There are Grabber Snow, but no-one has any in that size. I'll cross the winter tyre bridge if & when I get one. Just a pain that I have £400 worth of tyres & rims that I thought I could use, that I will have to replace when I get the new one.

Bit of a pain, as I was hoping to just take the wheels off mine and put them straight on the new one, complete with Winter tyres. I daresay they will fit, but the flares will look rather silly with nothing under them, and no doubt the insurance won't like it as the track will be less.


After a lot of searching and with the assistance of Google translate I have found that the new wheels are identical in dimension to the old ones. I've decided to get a set of Dotz Dakar in 15x6" with an offset of 0.

Is it the ET0 ones that have been fitted there, with the 215/75 tyres?

Is it me being dim, or do those wheels look identical to the stock Suzuki steel wheels?

Yes, those are the ones. I quite like the look of it, although I'm not sure whether I'd be best going for those exact wheels or the same ones but in a 7" width a -12 offset. I've asked the question regarding wheel widths in a new topic.
