Hi all,

Currently planning a 2" body lift on my '04 jimny and fitting some new chunky offroad tires to her for a nice beefy look.

Was just wondering if anyone has any advice/ideas for what will look good, and costs and other valuable input.

Thanks all,

Grant G.

The 2" body lift is good, got mine from THE OFF-ROAD ARMOURY

As for tyres, after a lot of research I went for Kumho KL71 195R15. These work out to be just a little larger than the standard tyre, so fit in the arches well and don't mess up the speedo Very Happy .
Very good road manners, do very well off road Cool . Had mine a1 1/2 years now tread still like new and the only time I get stuck is when the diffs get grounded Laughing .

If you are after a slightly beefier looking wheel setup, you could go with a Puma tyre made by Marix. The largest size you can go with out doing to much modifying is 215/75/15 they may still rub the bottom of the wheel arches may need a little trim.



LOOK HERE

You could fit some wheel space too...  Cool
