I'm changing my stock tires and I'd like to hear some advice regarding the best size without doing any body lifting (for now at least).

I don't care about road handling or noice since I exclusively use my Jimny for offroading (light to medium... nothing too aggressive).

I have two options in mind:

Toyo Open Country 215/75R15
Dunlop Grand Trek AT3 225/70R15

Any comments will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Just installed Open Country

Just if anyone might be interested, I just installed Toyo Open Country 215/75 R15's in my otherwise completely standard Jimny and they fitted perfectly.

The road ride is much smoother and softer, the steering has also improved and the offroad capabilities (on a light ride at least) is also better.

Hope this will help anyone thinking on making the change from the stock tires.

Wow! Oman!

So you live in Oman? Amazing... You must have hundreds of great routes to do... I'm in Peru... A lot of good offroading places here as well... Mountains, deserts, jungle... A little bit of everything...

Would love to see some pictures of your trips...

The spotlights are Hella Rally 1000's... About 100 bucks each and mounted on the roof for better reaching...

The tires are verry good indeed... I'm very pleased with them. Next step will be to lift the suspension with a set of Old Man Emu shocks and coils... But they're quite pricey... Around 1,300 USD so I'll have to save a little... And they are only by special order so it takes two months for them to arrive...

225 70 15

I changed the stock Bridgestone Dueler 205 70 15 to Kumho Road Venturer 225 70 15 yesterday. No problems with installation and they are more comfortable (I dropped tire air pressure by 1Lb/psi). No idea about off road performance or mpg yet. I do around 10% offroad miles.

I just got my 2019 jimny and thinking of changing my tires to 225 70 R15. Thinking of using Cooper Discovery AT3. Present tires are 195 80 R15. Would there be a big weight difference between the two tires and would cause problems with the joints in the future? Thanks in advance for your replies.
