I'll be watching this thread!

I've decided on the AT2... i just want to see if there are any issues with the slightly bigger diameter

@ Halford - your Jimny is standard other than 30mm spacers isn't it?

Is the facelift bumper any different to the original? or am i wasting my time hoping a set of 205/75/15 are going to fit? i have the suzuki flexi flaps fitted too... but i'd hope my tyres weren't running that close anyway!

totally standard - due to lack of cash :sick:
but on a positive note - gives me plenty of time to plot & plan to "one-day" get it just how I want it ;)

well from my research so far the 205/75/15 will fit without cutting...

I hope they fit... as i really don't want to start looking around for more alternatives

My B'stones coped very well with the 4-5inches of snow we had last year though! so don't really buy the whole 'dangerous' idea that people on hear talk about... also been laning with them on some fairly serious slippery stuff and still got through... the steering wheel just had no effect on the way in which i was pointing:blink:

I just hope the 205/75s fit with your wheel spacers Halford... That should make for a pretty smooth ride TBH!

On my non-face lift model the smallest distance between the front tyre and the wheel arch is 30mm ish. Not sure what this would be on a facelift model.

new project
been waiting 4 years for a lotty - got one on Friday :blink:

looks like it's going to deplete the Jimny Piggy Bank :S
wonder if they'd notice a car port and 2 post lift going in, could disguise the lift by growing something up it and pretend the port was a fruit cage :pinch:
