I've got them fitted to mine :) They were reasonably priced from my then tyre fitters in Frome, Somerset (H+B tyres) - for 5 fitted and balanced on alloys they came out cheaper than almost all internet suppliers. I've had them on for just over 2 years (about 20-25k) and the back ones are almost like new, the fronts are due for replacement as the outside edge has worn more than the inside edge - a job for the new year.

On road they're fine, no road noise and plenty of grip.In the brown stuff they're fine for light laning etc, not comp/ extreme. In the current snow, they handle fine.

Like i said, my fronts are due for replacement at the begining on the new year, and i'll be replacing like for like. I'll try and post a few pics of the how much tread is left when it gets light tomoz

To echo other replies, i've had some on for over 2 years now and i don't think there's a better value tyre for the jimny. BFG's will go on forever but will be at least double the price of the grabbers. Unless you want/need a really aggressive tread pattern i think they suit the jimny perfectly, i know people who lunch them on pickups and bigger trucks but they suit the lighter jimny.
The only time they really struggle is in deeeeep mud where they fill up with mud and won't clean quick enough.

If i wasn't after an aggressive tyre next time i'd have a full set in an instant but slightly wider.

Black Jimny's don't get stuck!

Hi, did the Grabbers fit ok as they are slightly taller at 205/75/15? my Jimny is standard with Duellers and I'm thinking about changing them out soon for some AT's due to them coming to the end of their life.

You may be ok with the wear on your tyres as long as they fit the discription below:
The current British legal limit for car tread depth is 1.6mm (across 75% of the tyre). However, most tyre experts advise that you replace your tyres when the tread is less than 3mm.


Thanks

yeh, i had 215/75/15 bfg mud terrains on mine with no lift or anything else.



They were on wider steel rims though so yours should have more clearance than in the pic (wont stick as far out)
