A bit bigger tyres.

Bericht door denis » 15 jan 2015 20:39

Hi Guys,

I just tried to pass technical check with my LJ and they told me i have to change the tyres. So i thought may be to go with a little bigger tires on standard star rims. Thought about BF Goodrich 215 75 r15. Does anybody have experience with this size and standard 800cc? At the moment i can drive 105km/h and wouldn't want to loose it as i have to travel a lot. Also what are the sizes approved by suzuki?

Thank you,
Denis.

Standard tyre was 195/80/15 so that gives you a difference in diameter of just 10.. Can't imagine that giving a problem with speed and power. Don't know how the regulations are for tyres sticking out the wheelarches in your country, they are a bit wider.

ahahah for these tyres i would need to upgrade to one liter engine :)
at 105km/h it is quite noisy so my girlfriend can't talk much. And that makes it more comfortable than at slower speeds :))

Does anybody have experience with kumho KL71 tyres? Seems to be a great combo for on road/offroad use.

I put falken wildpeak at/01 under the jimny and I'm really happy with them! Haven't done any off-road yet but onroad they are great! And the price is pretty reasonable!
