    22" Alloys on SDV8 HSE Dynamic...what to do?

    Hello Everyone,

    I recently sold my Disco & purchased a RRS SDV8 HSE Dynamic with 22" alloys & I'm struggling to know what to do with as my current tyres "Continental Cross Contact LX Sport" M+S 275/40R22 will not get me up to the Flinders Rangers & back....I've been reliably told by more than one or 2 people.

    As I'm sure you all know, the choice of "all terrain" tyres on 22" alloys with good highway driving is limited. I don't fancy driving up & down the freeway in Adelaide on mud pluggers everyday!

    So...I either find a 22" compromise or look at some 20" alloys like this link on Ebay from a guy in Melbourne who may swap my 22" with his 20"

    My concern is that I don't even know if they will fit on my RRS....with the big red brembo break calipers & they're actually listed as RR Vogue alloys? The tyre plate does suggest I can fit 20" alloys??

    I do like the Scorpion ATR's as they served me well on my Disco & are available in the 20" size (275/55R20) but the RR is a different beast & I'm not sure it has the clearance for 55's?

    Any suggestions?

    Cheers
    Matt

    20" Range Rover Sport rims will fit but the ones you are looking at are from a previous model (L320) and the offset is different. They would probably be OK but you would be better of getting L494 Sport or L405 20" rims such as the ones here and here. They are the same as those that I have fitted to my V8SC Autobiography and fit over the Brembo calipers without an issue. I would suggest putting 275 55 20 AT tyres on the 20" rims to give the best chance of avoiding problems.
    I would also suggest getting 5 wheels as your spare 22" will not be of much use if you get a flat.

    Be aware that these 20" wheels come up fairly often as people buy the base model Sport and then want 22" wheels. I paid $1100 for 4 wheels and tyres which had done less than 1000km. If you are patient you can get them fairly cheaply. On the other side 22" wheels can be desirable and get good prices.

    Hi Matt,
    Congrats on your purchase , I am sure you will enjoy it. - any chance you can post a pic?
    there may be some offset difference between the RR Vogue wheels and RRS wheels, you may have to do some homework( I do not know the details).

    What year is your car?, the local spec sheet stopped displaying the brake size after MY16, but the largest brake size then was 380mm which a 20 inch RRS wheel will fit over (e.g. mine). Also, when specifying the painted brake calipers on a build for RRS, it mentions that the wheels must be 20 in or larger. Looking at the RR vogue spec sheets, the same seems to apply. So, they 'should' fit ok.

    For tyres, the Scorpion ATR seem to have issues in the wet when worn a bit, there is a newer model out called AT-plus, which might be better suited for flinders ranges. Normal tyre size for RRS with 20 in wheels is 255/55/20. The Scorpion AT-plus is available in size 275/55/20, which people report fit fine (including in spare wheel well) . (I will be getting these when my current tyres croak)

    I doubt that L320 RRS rims will fit the L494 due to the already-mentioned offset. L405 rims may be narrower than L494 rims which would make sidewalls slightly less vulnerable on sharp rocks.

    I have had the new Pirelli AT+ in 275/55R20 fitted to my 2012 L322 for a few days now which hopefully will prove to be a good tyre for my use. The ride on my coarse gravel lane at speed feels the same as the previous BFG KO2 in the same size suggesting their carcass is substantial although the ride on secondary sealed roads is certainly an improvement on the BFGs, with the lack of noise except for a little on very coarse bitumen very welcome. Towing the 2T+ van over the next couple of days will be another test.

    Please keep us updated Graeme, these are high on my list when replacements are required.

    OK my RRS came with 22 inch wheels. I purchased 4 L320 20 Inch wheels with cooper tyres for $1200, 285/45 20. The offset was 4mm different, load rating was higher. Beware that L320 rims have two different stud sizes, later ones are the same.

    No issues with Brembos.

    Continuing on the same topic and wondering if anyone can specify what the offset needs to be as I cant see that anywhere in this or other threads.

    Iím looking for 20Ē wheels for my 2015/ MY16 L405 SDV8 Autobiography. Brakes donít appear to be Brembo as no visual branding.


    Iím wondering if these would be suitable , they are 53mm Offset.

    The standard offset is 47 for 20" and those you have listed are 53 and from the L320. A smaller offset is better as it gives a wider track.

    Brembos aren't necessarily branded, if it was ordered with red painted ones they were but the black ones aren't. I'm pretty sure all V8s have Brembos.

    I used the L320 and they will fit see my Photo above. I was running 285 coopers and there was a slight rub which I fixed by adding a 3mm shim . Be care full as the stud patterns are the same but hole size varies, ask me how I know this. The outer whole needs to be the larger one otherwise the OME nuts will not fit. Load rating is higher for the L320 and the OME wheels have the LR oval on them .
