The D4 is SOOO good at most things you can throw at it nobody needs to cut, grind, lift,, fit spacers or any major mods.
Don't spoil a great vehicle!!
By far the best option is to leave as much alone as possible & simply fit the best 18" wheels you can buy. That's the U.K. made Compomotive. They are about the most expensive wheel option, but are the strongest, best-made wheel
available in my opinion. No mods are required to fit them with BFG A/T KO2's in 265/60 X 18's . If you go up one size to 265/65 you cannot fit a fully-inflated spare in the standard mount & some D4's experience some rubbing.
I've found the 265/60 is brilliant on rocky, rutted tracks with excellent sidewall protection even when aired-down. I've not
been in a situation yet where I wished I'd gone for the slightly taller sidewall on the "65".
The KO 2's in my opinion are the best available A/T for our flinty, rocky tracks in central Australia like The Flinders Ranges, which are infamous for sidewall punctures & can be hundreds of kms from getting a tire replaced. They are much more popular here than Cooper's & any of the Asian brands.
I've driven around Moab , but not in a D4. But with what I've seen there I reckon I'd go for KO 2's if I lived there.
I say this as a Compomotive owner, but one of the options, the Italian made ones IIRC, do have a higher load rating than the Compos.

My wife agrees with your other comments, but the sawzall has to eat...;)

Not really benefiting the conversation here, just sharing:
My TuffAnt Kimberley rims (smoked grey) should be arriving tomorrow. I'm pretty stoked, although I'm not in a huge hurry to get the stock 19" rims off my 2013 LR4 since there's plenty of tread left on the Falken Wild Peak AT Trail tires that are on there now. I plan on taking my time and picking the right tires for these 18s and will eventually install a swing-out tire carrier, so placing the tire underneath the vehicle won't be a factor in my decision.

Kimberley Specs:
- Weight: 13.7kg
- Load Rating: 1500kg
- Offset: ET29
- Size: 18" x 8"

One of the five rims came in today and I think it looks great. I need to remain patient and use up the tread on those 19's :)

I missed this when you first posted it. Those are certainly some of the better looking aftermarket wheels that are out there.

I agree it is good stock, and honestly, probably suits most people's uses just fine, but if you really push the thing, there is simply no substitute for tire diameter.

I'm on 33's now, and my next set will be 35's, but I'm long past the point of being shy about taking a sawz-all to it.

The glaring weakness in the aftermarket for these trucks is an option to re-gear them for larger tires. Much above 32, and the gearing becomes noticeable.
