Default New JA11 Owner Seeks Tire Help

Aloha from Hawaii...I recently acquired a 1990 JA11 RHD Hardtop (Kei) with the 660cc turbo triple. The vehicle is stone stock and has 23,800 KM (or 14,800-ish miles) on its odometer and was imported last year. It is fully legal and registered in my state.

I believe the tires are the Japanese original, as they are marked Bridgestones but do not have the US DOT approval on them, and are sized 175/80R16 on the stock 5.5J x 16” steel wheels. Does anyone have any All Terrain tire recommendations that I can obtain in the States that I can use on these stock wheels? The Tire Rack and Discount Tire websites pull up only obscure all season tires in this size. I would rather keep the wheels and “skinny” is fine (no phat tire look.)

Mahalo (thank you in Hawaiian) for any guidance!

PS: I tried using the search function and kept getting redirected to a Philippine Zuki board.

I have 195R16c Toyo transpaths m/t on mine right now. Good daily driver rubber and good off-road. My jimny is stock height and those tires will fit on stock rims. Biggest rubbers you can put on the stock rims are 215/75. I would suggest BFGs A/T if you’re going with bigger rubber.

Yeah, BFG's are nice.

Have them on the 94 Tracker.

Thanks to all for the help,..I think a 215/70R16 should work okay; now it's just a matter of finding a set of Cooper Discoverer A/T3's which seem to be the only cost effective A/T option in that size.
