An interesting example to compare might be the current generation of the Suzuki Jimny. The international model, also available in Japan despite the higher taxation, has the fender flares, and the wheels have a different offset and are wider too, while the kei model specific for Japan doesn't have fender flares in order to keep width within the kei-jidosha class limits, and AFAIK its tires are also narrower.

No surprise most of the ancient trucks also tend to have narrower tires?
