    Default Jimny wheel advice

    I have a 2017 Suzuki Jimny with the standard alloy wheels and have been thinking about replacing them with the 2019 Jimny GA model steel wheels. I think that the black steel rims look nicer than the chrome alloy wheels I have at the moment. However, besides aesthetics, I wonder if this is a wise replacement? Are they of good quality, strong enough etc.

    There is nothing wrong with the GA rims.

    I also thought about this after seeing the launch models.

    Anyone got a price from Suzuki on the steelies? I assume they are the same width as the previous model Jimny, newer one runs 195's as opposed to 205's.

    You might find some people in the future when more GA models are available, swapping those rims for aftermarket one's. Keep your eyes open on Gumtree.

    Maybe you will be able to swop with an SJ or Samurai owner.
