    Maybe better fuel economy but they run fairly high ratio diffs with the 8-speed so maybe not especially if towing.

    I meant compared to the wider tyre.

    Sorry, wrong assumption on my part and totally agree. I'm giving some consideration to swapping to that size on my L322 to get the narrower footprint although I'd really like 255/60R19 in a useful for me construction and pattern to also lower the gearing a little.

    Any more news?

    Any more news regarding other options in the 255/60 R19 tyre size?

    Today I went into my local Tyrepower to get a replacement for my front passenger side tyre which has a leak (I have the Goodyear F1 Eagles fitted from new, 35k km) and was told that there are none of this tyre currently available in Australia!!

    The Pirelli Scorpion Verde (the only other tyre type available in that size) are out of stock in Perth and will take a week to get here from the East Coast!!

    This isn't my latest angst regarding this tyre size as I blew one in Karrajini NP in August and was stuck in Broome for 10 days waiting for an interstate replacement. If I had a dollar for every time someone said 'should have bought a Prado........'

    So anyway I had been talking to LR in Perth about changing to the 20inch (20x8.5 +39) rims that were apparently an option when I bought the car in 2017, so that my tyre options were (slightly) improved. Today they quoted me $2000 per wheel fitted (including a Grabber AT3). So $12k if I want 6 wheels!!! They also advised me against fitting any other wheels other than original LRs. The phrase 'cheap Chinese copies' was used.

    The bloke in Tyrepower said that I could legally fit a 275 55 R19 (I realise I'd need all 5 changed, and my diameter and width would grow a little, which worries me slightly) but there are no real AT options available in that size anyway, although there is a wider range of 'highway tyres.

    So a couple of questions, and apologies in advance for my ignorance, I'm not a real techie person; am I only allowed to fit wheels and tyre sizes as per my door plate? (Which would exclude the 275 55 R19 btw). Would 2nd hand original LR rims from a RRS or Disco Sport be ok as long as they matched the door plate sizes? Is there another option than LR original wheels that wouldn't be classed as cheap overseas copies? Would I be invalidating any warranty etc fitting non-LR wheels? Any suggestions for reputable brands?

    Thanks in advance

    The tyre shop next door to Barbagallos in Ossie Park has cheap alloy 20 inch rims for Land Rovers. I bought one for a second spare on my L405 RRV and put 275x55 R20 Nitto Grappler tyre on it for around $500 - $600 all up from memory. That was after I was quoted $2000 per wheel also. It is the one in Scarborough Beach Rd near the corner of Frobisher. The wheel looks very similar to the LR 20 inch wheel.

    You must, legally, only fit the correct wheels, not any 20" wheel with the Land Rover stud pattern. It must be the correct offset as well. Wheels from other Land Rover /Range Rover vehicles will probably have a different offset, so make sure they are the correct ones.

    PS The wheels from Tuffant must be the ones made specifically for the D5 and there are even different ones for different years.

    From memory, 20 mm wider and 5 % increase in diameter for cars and 50 mm diameter increase for 4WD - and the definition of "4WD" can be fun...

    DISCOVERY 5 | TuffAnt

    The TuffAnt Alloy ET27's fit all model D5's up to and including MY20. The below information pertains only to the TuffAnt Steelies (offset ET27).

    [COLOR=rgb(var(--color_15))]STEELIES. [/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgb(var(--color_15))]​[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgb(var(--color_15))]If you have an MY19 model or later SD6 (HiPo) version you will not be able to fit TuffAnt Steelies without modification. The good news is that at this point the new Generation 2 Steel wheel will fit every other Discovery 5. [/COLOR]
