You sure it's not a 5" rim? That is what all the specs say. It's stamped on the rim. 195 is only thing I see for it.

It might be a good idea to clarify which vehicle you're asking about - there are two very different Suzuki Jimnys, neither of which was sold in the US market - your avatar appears to show the earlier version which was sold in the US as the Samurai and would have been fitted with 15" rims.

sorry, i thought a picture-and including the wheel size and desired tire size would be sufficient...but it’s a JDM 91 Jimny JA11V FA6-T 660..any help on tire tire fitment would be greatly appreciated!

Let me put it this way - if you don't provide the details, you force people to make assumptions, and in this case, it's going to be assumptions about a vehicle that they probably know little or nothing about - from the picture I would have assumed a high top coil sprung Samurai with a 1.3 litre engine, which is a vehicle that was also not sold in the US.

Personally, I think most people would be quite surprised to discover how different the JDM vehicles are from the export models - it may or may not make a difference in tire selection - and since I don't know where those differences lie, I'll say no more.

fair enough...hard to get more specific than i need a tire to fit my 16X4.5 rim. all the assumptions thatóthat is NOT the wheel on my car is where the confusion comes from

I said this before - you asked the question without providing the details on the vehicle and that is what forced the assumptions to be made - the questions & resulting discussion are nothing more than attempts to avoid inappropriate suggestions (and potentially costly mistakes) as to what size tires can be used.

Were I in your position, I would be checking the tire placard in the driver's side door jamb (most JDM vehicles have that), and going from there - and I would start by verifying that the rims fitted match the listing on the placard, which they may or may not - used JDM vehicles are shipped from Japan with whatever the previous owner fitted - I've seen Toyotas with 15 & 16 inch rims instead of the 14's listed on the placard.

Another approach to answering your question, and from a US only point of view - what is a Jimny? Are you asking about that Samurai in the picture? Those take 15x5.5 rims, not 16x4.5, with either 205/70R15 or 195/75R15 tires ...

what is a Jimny? am i not on the Jimny portion of the Suzuki forum? the picture is a Jimny, not a Samurai. have you ever seen a Samurai with a roof like that on it? all the information i could possibly give on the vehicle is in my post somewhere or in my profile. none of that is needed though because my question is SO simple...

anyone know where i can get tires for my 16X4.5” wheels? many many JDM Jimnys use this wheel.

or let me phrase it like this...my Jimny has 175/80R16s on it—like most stock JDM Jimnys of the era. anyone know where i can get this tire in the USA? (or its equivalent)
