    Hi,

    I need to put new tyres on my gen3 Jimny, and I want to go slightly bigger. The options are very limited though:

    205/75/15 Goodyear Wrangler - My first choice, but they out of stock
    195/80/15 Hankook Dyna Pro Atm RFM - Looks good, but concerned about sidewall strength
    215/75/15 General Grabber - SO tempted, but really concerned about fuel consumption and power loss

    so, with the 215's does the power loss effect offroad driving, especially steep climbs and sand dunes?

    Any comments or suggestions on my choices?

    Thanks

    I had 215/80R15's on my Gen 3, which are bigger than all of the sizes you have listed. I never had any issues off-road, no matter how steep. I never did any dune driving, but the bigger the tyre the better the floatation, so I can't see you having an issue.

    I had 215/75R15 General Grabbers on my gen3 Jimny. Really good value for money and you can still do 120km/h on the open road. Offroad the traction is excellent and you can still do dunes because of better flotation as Vic mentioned.

    The reason I say so is because I have done dunes with a Gypsy (with less power than a Jimny) with 215/75R15

    I have 40mm spacers on coils, safari HDP's and 215's. No real difference. You'd be hard pressed to spot the difference. Consumption went from 12-13km/L (I do 99% highway driving) to 10-11km/L.
    I have a K&N filter, sliiiight difference with this fitted, but still would be hard pressed to spot the difference. Improved consumption from 9-10km/L to 10-11km/L, so nothing to write home about.
    Things to add that make all the difference:
    Stiffer shocks (Safari HDP's are cheap and durable enough for what most people do, they're hard as nails.)
    Steering damper

    All of these can be found in one place: Zombie Offroad.

    215/80R15 is the biggest you can fit without a lift (4.6% bigger than stock). 215/75R15 is the best if you want to maintain your fuel consumption (1.5% bigger than stock). There are also a lot more options available in 215/75R15.

    Thanks so much... so with the 215/75ís there is absolutely no rub, even on full articulation?
