    I've run 19" only ever since I've owned the car, never had an issue getting tyres or replacements in case of a puncture. I don't plan on going to 18" even if doing a remote trip. Tyre management and driving to the conditions are the key in my view.

    By the movie and others stories, it certainly looks like the 19s will be fine for us

    There are AT's around,but are not very strong.

    Running 18" gives you a much greater range of tyres,and tyre sizes, to choose from,and more sidewall to play with.

    But LR 18" rims will not fit,you need to go to aftermarket 18" rims,as others have said.

    They will fit the D4 2.7,but none of the 3.0l models.

    EDIT,so i was wrong,as per other posts,Maxis do have an AT with a 115 load rating in 19" that will fit the LR D3/4 rims.
    Still not a very high load rating,but probably the best around in that size.
    Just to clarify, the Maxxis AT980 appear to be the only AT tyre in 19 that have a Light Truck construction. There are other AT tyres available but it seems many, including me, are using the Maxxis with no problems. They are a tough tyre and speed and pressure are much more critical than anything else. I run 34 front 46 rear on bitumen towing my camper trailer and 28 front and rear on any gravel/corrugations (wt on the trailer). Never had a problem and will buy them again (unless Pirelli start to offer their AT tyre in LT construction).
    Cheers,
    David

    +2 for me, they are the only tyre with a ply rating (PR) of 10 - AND with the load and speed rating to suit the D4.

    Another excellent option is the wrangler duratrac, but at over $ 500 each, a bit steep.
