    Tyres for Disco 5

    Ben @ APT has just fitted replacement tyres to his D5...I have no idea what size but he did mention he was keen on a larger size but didnít have time to assess if it was going to cause issues when the suspension drops to its bump stops

    Oh his temporary roof rack looked good so Iím betting the long term one will look the goods.

    Iím guessing his underbody protection must nearly be ready as well.

    Tyres for Disco 5

    After ripping the wall of one of my 19Ē tyres in the Vic High Country I am waiting for a reply from Jaguar Landrover about the suitability of the standard fitted tyres for off-road use and what alternatives can be legally fitted to my D5. I have been told by the local tyre dealer that the only alternative that he can legally fit is a Pirelli Scorpion Verde of the same size which has a similar type of tread. Iím not talking serious off-roading, just off-bitumen like the GRR, GCR or Gary Junction. My D4 had 18Ē wheels and I fitted D697s which were great. I really donít want to change the wheels but I would like to have confidence in the tyres Iím using and I donít want to risk my insurance by fitting tyres that arenít legal.
    What have others done?

    Going to 18's is probably by far the best issue,Tuffants.

    There are a heap of LT tyres in that size(18) that will suit these rims,and are similar diameter to the OEM tyre.

    I don't think there will be any LT 19' tyres available,as the D5 tyre(19") is an odd size.

    The spruced-up "off-road" version of the D5 that was announced some months ago was fitted with 275/55R20 which should make that size legal on any D5. 275/55R20 is the size used by several people who take their D5s off-road.

    The only 19Ē LT tyre is the Maxxis AT980. I donít think they come any smaller than the 255 width. Itís a great, tough tyre, just noisier which is to be expected. Not sure if this will fit the D5.

    The Maxxis 980 isn't available in the D5 size 255/60R19.

    Would only the profile difference make it illegal? I thought itís if you go too wide that made it illegal, or a percentage over the std tyre. My D2 I went a slightly larger (wider) tyre but kept it legal.

    Somebody mentioned Tuffant wheels, does anybody know the answer to this then?

    The D5 has a significantly different offset - so much so that the Compomotive Group has had to make a new wheel offset otherwise the allows hit the control arms under articulation.

    What offset are Tuffant and are they making a different offset to accomodate the D5?

    I was considering the change from a 31" tyre down to a 30" tyre as being quite undesirable.
