Vehicles (17 Jan 2019)
You can now add the vehicles you own to your profile as little icons that appear in your profile and alongside your posts.
This is a bit of an experiment. Take a look under the "REWARDS" menu across the top of the screen for the vehicles "ADD/MODIFY" option.
Let me know how you get on.

NEW Jimny TYRE choice discussion.
I'd love the 235's!!! Very cool prospect. However wont they take the Jim over the 5% warranty rule? Sorry im naff with maths.
5.9% bigger, so yes but only just . I'm sure I read somewhere that a dealer in Australia is selling cars with them fitted and still warrantied.

Given the cars are so similar, suitable tyres will be no different to those widely discussed for the gen3. BFG All- and Mud-terrains, Yokohama Geolanders, Goodyear Wranglers, Toyo Open Country, Kumho KL71s all offer different levels of aggressiveness and cover a variety of price points.
Sizing wise, 195/80r15 or 215/75r15 will preserve good road manners and keep gearing standard. However, looking at pictures there's a good chance 235/75r15s will fit without issue. They are a much more popular tyre size amongst 4x4s which opens up a wider choice of tyres, often cheaper than their smaller equivalents.
235's don't fit without a lift. Biggest that fits without rubbing is 215/80R15

I'm getting a new Jimny later this week and I'm planning to swap the tyres for KO2's but I'm still unsure about the size. 215/75 seems like the safe choice, but I read in a magazine here in OZ you can legally put 235/75 on the stock rims. What I'm trying to find out is whether they fit well without a lift.
Hi Matt, congrats on the new Jimy!
Remember the 5% rule regarding warranty too. I'm going to go with 215/75/15.
What colour you chosen then?
Looking to buy a Jimny 4th gen this year.
Been informing myself on various topics.
Apparently, this new General Grabber X3 outperforms even the BFG MT KO2, and it's available in 215/75R15.
