Hi, I've recently discovered the joys of Jimny and got hold of a 2007 JLX+ in the North East UK - loving it, didn't know what I'd been missing.
I'm looking for some new tyres - stock 205/70R50 bridgestone dueller's fitted.
Use will be mainly road, some trail and road winter snow/ice (has got a lot worse the last couple of years).
Was thinking of getting toyo Open Country A/T's but these are only available in sizes 205/75R15 or 215/70R15.
As far as I'm aware the increase from a 70 profile to a 75 profile would increase the diameter by 7/8ths of an inch - I wouldn't have thought this would be an issue, but I'm no expert and would appreciate any feeback. Or, would the 215's fit - assume this means 10mm wider - what effect would that have, would it put excessive stress on sidewalls ????.
Have also picked up from the forum that many appear to like the General Grabber AT2 which appears to be a similar tyre to the toyo Open Country A/T, any feedback on users experiences would be most welcomed.
Thanks for reading my "essay" - but wanted to try and cover all points.
Hope you can help.
