We all have seen the modified Maruti Suzuki Jimny coming. It would be wrong to say that none of us expected to see the Maruti Suzuki Jimny in several modified versions, some of which were just a mall crawler, while some were taking a more practical route to off-roading. As revealed by reliable sources, tuning houses in India have started stocking the G-Wagen kit for the Jimny while tire sellers are stocking the R15 AT rubber. Interestingly, the latter is proving to be the first step down the modification path by the owners. Well, we recently came across a Maruti Suzuki Jimny which now runs on a set of AT tyres.
As can be seen in the pictures, the Jimny looks attractive with chunky AT rubber. These tires are Continental Conti Cross AT. Also, it should be noted that the Jimny seen here is the top-spec Alpha AT trim, which comes with factory alloy wheels. However, the owner has replaced them with steely ones. Well, these appear to be 235-section tires. Still they look good on the Jimny. In addition to this, the owner has also installed a few accessories from the dealership itself like door visors, fender trims, ORVM trim and more.
