Hi SIdtheKid,

You mentioned fitment of 31 inch tyres on your Sporty in a 16 inch rim. COuld you provide the metric size of the tyre if you wouldn't mind. Is it a 245/75 R16 or 265/70 R16 etc.

Would love to know as I have fitted Grand Vitara 16 inch rims to my Sporty and would like to fit 31's in a 16 inch to it but all the tyres I come across are either when converted from metric toimperial are 30's 2(45/75R16 and 265/70 R16) or almost 32's ( 265/75R16 and 235/85R16)

Cheers, Chris

Another lifted silver Sporty! So clean and bare! Mine looked JUST like yours without the lift 8.5 yrs ago. Didn't even have an OE roof rack back then. Then the mods kicked in, then I painted mirrors and wheels. Swapped motor for a fresh self rebuild. Hello fellow Silver Sporty owner (=
