Hi just bought a vitara, i want to change the tyres to 205/75/15's. The car is standard but it has little chubby tyres 205/60/15's. To the point have i bought a fat boy and is the suspension different to a standard vit
Cheers
Phil

dont forget the 75 section is in relation to the tyre width....

ie 205/70/15 = 205mm nominal tyre width/sidewall=70%of tyre width/rim size

It may have had lowered springs fitted on it at some point in its life as its a fatboy.

You can buy dropped A arms for Vitaras, if its really low it may have had those on it as well.
