I hope to replace and upgrade the tires/wheels/shocks on the '88 Jimny I received.

Wheels are now 15x6 5x5.5 and the unit has no lift whatsoever.

Does anyone know if 15x7 wheels will fit without rubbing etc? 15x8 too wide?

As regards to tires (assuming 15x7 wheel works), does anyone know if 235/75-15's will work? Or risk rub etc. I am just trying to get best/safest on-road-only ride, not worrying about off road performance or wide looks.

Lastly, anyone got any suggestions for new shocks. The unit has very low mileage but has been sitting for decades so assume shock are shot.

Thanks so much for any input.

Most everyone I know running larger tires one a Samurai never runs over 7.5 rim. You will rub for sure. If you have the choice pick a 7" wide.

Monroe makes great OEM quality shocks. Pick some up and you will be pleased.
