This will suit your needs:

I would run 30x9.5 though an easier tire to get in good designs and gearing will work well

Ordered. Thank you.
How do you recommend to fit tire like 235/75/15 on the car? Cut the arches? Lift about 2.5 inch?

I would recommend cutting the guards personally. If you want a lift I would either go 30mm spring spacers or OME front springs and stock fronts in the rear with good shocks. Travel on the jim is limited by the sway bar. Disconnects or removal will result is a lot more front travel even with stock shocks.

Fixed... ;)
As has been proven many times over, OME kits don’t lift the front end on Jimnys. :thefinger:

They do, just not as much as people expect. People expect around 2 inches of lift but after they settle you only get around 30mm

Now I have on the car 2inch Efs lift kit, springs and shocks.
I think to chope some from the arches, put 235 on the original 5.5 wheel may be with 1inch spacer and maybe 1 inch spacer for the springs. What do you think? Thanks a lot

Well keep your current suspension as is already there. Have a quick google for “big Jimny guard chop” and “auszooker guard chop” they actually come up quite neat. If you are gearing I would personally run 30x9.5 as it will give you more options and is a nicer size than 235/75 even though it’s very close. If you have some 235’s lined up cheap then by all means go for it

Regarding spacers, tbh for the price of spacers I would feel confident to run you can get some new wheels for the same price. Plus a 235 or 9.5 on a 5.5 inch rims is not recommended.
