Hi, I'm Edmund fom Yucatan Mexico, i have a vitara horizon orange/white, it has now been a year since i had my vitara and i'm really happy about it, since then i go on trips and little offroads almost every weekend exploring the whole peninsula of Yucatan, i will upload photos from the places where i´ve taken my vitara for you to see the landscapes and hopefully with the help of this forum, the mods and upgrades to my vitara.

At the moment im trying to do some basic changes including getting offroad tyres, which i've read there are no so many options, suspension lift and skidplates,i'm  also trying to get a roof rack for a tent but this will be more a diy project.

Greetings to everyone and good luck with your own plans for your vitaras.

Edmund.

Welcome to the Forum Edmund cheers

Great to hear you are enjoying your Vitara and really looking forward to seeing your Drive reports and pictures of your Vitara in Mexico

I follow Suzuki Tampico from Mexico and enjoy the Vitara Videos they post

Keep us posted on your modifications, the most aggressive tyre we get in Europe in 215/60R16 is the Yokohama Geolandar do you get anything different in Mexico?

Hi Karl, no actually I entered this forum looking for that info about tyres, Suzuki Mexico in my city (Merida) doesn`t have information about it they told me I could go for the /70´s wich i knew wasnt good thanks to the forum, im thinking about the geolander 215/60 r17, but not shure if those will make a diference enough for the price. what do you think?

Morning Edmund, having driven an Automatic Vitara with oversize tyres I would not recommend anything different than 215/60R16 or 215/55R17

You can read my experience here....
http://vivavitara.forumotion.co.uk/t166-iceland-by-vitara-caution-very-picture-heavy

The only Yokohama that really makes any difference is the Geolandar G012 but is only available in 215/60R16

In Europe we have tyres that are either Summer, All Season and Winter (also known as Mud & Snow), usually the All Season and Winter tyres are the more aggressive and suitable for off roading

Here is a link to one of the best websites for tyres and showing what is available in 215/55R17...

Looking at Contishop MX you don't seem to have much choice in 17"...

Conti Shop MX Click Here

To add further sidewall I have switched from 17" to the 215/60R16 and of course the Yokohama Geolandar G012, the only downside is the additional cost of 16" wheel and TPMS sensors
