Can someone please let me know if there is any possibilities running 225/70/15 General Grabbers AT or any other AT tyres on the 2016+ Vitara?

using spacers, Complete lift kit PU spacers to add 30 mm or Eibach lift kit (Springs) up to 30 mm

or a combination to allow this to happen or something else.

Cheers
Andy

I dont think a 15" wheel will fit over the front brake calipers, early SX4 saloon's had 15" wheels but also smaller caliper/disc combo unlike the SX4 hatch that had 16" and the same brakes as our Vitara's

Golleck racing fit a 215/70R16 BFG AT and i run a 215/60R16 Yokohama Geolandar AT
Is your Vitara manual or auto?

Being an auto you may find with oversize tyres that it will not change into 5th/6th gear, I drove over 2000miles in a 1.6 petrol Auto with 225/60R17 and unless you manually changed up into 5th/6th with the paddles the auto would hang in 4th gear due to the bigger tyre dimension

Hi . I run 215/65 16 tyres on my diesel auto . They "fill" the wheel arches and have noticeably raised the car giving me more ground clearance , the fronts just rub on the arch liner on full lock which I try to avoid doing and only use full lock when parking at very low speeds . Any larger diameter tyres and I will have problems with the auto gearbox not changing up to 5 & 6 gear without having to do it manually .I am happy with the lift it has given the car and will not risk the possible handling and higher centre of gravity issues lift kits may cause .225/70/15 General Grabbers AT Wp_20113
Hope this helps.
