Hello.


I have just bought a 1997 Vitara Long Wheel Base which is riding on 215/65R16  Mud and Snow tyres.


I would like to fit a set of 235/75XR15 wheels and tyres.


Will land Rover Rims fit straight onto a Vitara without modifiying the vehicle? { 235/80R16 }


Will there be any Off Road benefit if I were to fit these wider tyres.


Would I need to modify my Vitara ie: lift kit or remove/ alter body parts?


Thank You

hi
welcome

landrover rims will not fit, they are different stud patten.

235/75x15 should fit without any mods as they are not much taller than the ones you have on it at the moment.

wider tyres wount help much off road, its the tread patten thats important.

Morning.

Thanks for the welcome and your reply to my question Suzota.


I was looking at a set of Grizzly Claw tyres as they seem to have good tread patterns.


Greenway Annaconda tyres also look good.


Is there a certain tyre brand and tyre pattern that members can recommend please?.


I don't really want to go to the trouble of Lifting my vitara and cutting bits off her but need some good tyres which will give me maximum ground clearance so she doesn't sit on her floor and lose traction when driving along Deeply Rutted farm tracks.


Any help and advice would be appreciated.


Thank You
