Anyone got an idea on how these would fare in typical British weather on Green lanes and such? Looking for a cheap set of steels with some decent rubber on, and being 17 and skint sort of minimises my options :/ Driving a Jimny 1.3 2005 if that helps at all? Thankyouuuuu

Haha thought this might come up.

If they'll work without a lift, perfect. If not, instead of forking out loads on a full sus lift, I've been told about some 'spacers' (to an extent) which basically fit between the chassis and the body and give about 2" worth of lift if wanted? About £70 odd on ebay from what I've seen?

Those tyres are of a budget brand, have no tread depth and will need a 3" lift to be a comfortable fit. If you are going for a 2" lift, do it with suspension not a body lift and go with 215/75/15 tyres.

I know that suspension lifts are more expensive but the results are worth saving and waiting for over a body lit.

If you must go with a body lift only buy from bits4vits. Ebay stuff usually doesn't include everything and is of questionable quality.
