    Need your opinions: Lifted SX4, General Grabber AT 2 on 15s or Geolander on 16s?

    Howdy ho,

    My wife has a lifted sx4 and we are looking at updating the rubber. Two thoughts and I would appreciate your opinions.

    1. 15 inch rims with General Grabber AT2 in 215 75 R15
    Am I correct with tire size? Currently we have a set of 215 60 R17s on the car. Is 75 correct or is that too big or small?

    or

    2. 16 inch rims and Yokohama Geolander 215 70 R 15

    We are in Wyoming and yes we see some snow. I don't plan to slap on snow tires for winter, so the above options would be for year round use. Yes we take it off-road and yes we drive down the highway.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    My vote is the general grabbers on 15 inch rims. Seems like 16 inch tires always cost a little bit more vs the 15.

    15 inch rims give you more rubber which ends up being a little more cushion when you go offroad. I used jeep Cherokee rims on my SX4, they come out to a 32mm offset which is an awesome stance. Also used hubcentric ring 71.5 - 60.1mm.

    Thanks. I'm more partial to the Generals as I have a set of altimax for winters and a set of Contis for my audi. The generals are a bomber tire.

    I had the Geolanders at the same time Rubicon4wheeler had the General Grabbers. The consensus was that the Geolander was a little better on road and the Grabber was a little better off road.

    If you're on 15's why not just go all out and get BFGoodrich KO2's in 215/75R15?
