    I'm looking at a set of wheels on CL for my 2013 LR4 HSE. I have 255/55/19s.
    They have RRS tires on them in 235/65/19. My tires are fine and I really just want the rims, but the tires would be a bonus. I know they are taller and narrower (31x9.5 vs 30x10). I'm wondering if they would rub at full squat. Google and this forum search lead me nowhere.
    Thanks! ,
    Al

    If 255/60r19 (31x10) doesn't, I'd assume that wouldn't either

    Anyone .....and I mean ANYONE looking to replace their OE 19" wheels should look no further than the
    superb Compomotive 18"s from the U.K. Yes, they are expensive, but in many ways better than the other
    couple of aftermarket 18"s on the market. With 18"s you can run the brilliant & tough BFG A/T KO2's that
    are not made for 19" wheels.
    Here in Australia the general consensus amongst serious off-roaders is that the BFG's (both A/T & M/T) are
    superior to Coopers A/T's. The sidewalls are so much tougher in terrain with flinty rocks.
    I had two sets of the previous BFG A/T's on a Series 1 Disco & they were great. I've just put BFG A/T KO2's
    on my 2014 D 4 on new Compo 18"s (265/60-18) & I'm very happy. The wheels look perfect on the vehicle,
    lock nuts & OE caps fit perfectly, the car handles & rides great, only slightly more noise than the OE Goodyear Wranglers & I'm feeling much more secure in all conditions. The overall size is virtually the same as the 255/55-19's so no rubbing or fouling issues. 265/65-18"s will also fit, but then the speedo is further out & I believe the spare won't fit underneath - no concern to me as I have a Kaymar rear wheel carrier.
    I've even seen D3's which run 18"s as standard, where the owner has replaced them with the stronger
    Compomotives just because they look so much better!
    The D4 is a brilliant, but not cheap vehicle. Don't compromise on wheels & tyres. I don't reckon spacers or
    rods is a good way to go. Spend the extra on the Compomotives, fit good rubber & the vehicle will look after you & look great as well.

    I don't recall any recent rrs coming with that size but it should fit just fine.

    Re bfg vs Cooper it really depends on which coopers, the Maxx series are on the mud terrain carcas and considerably more robust than bfg ko2s.

    A lot of Coopers come in varying sidewall strengths, even among the same model tire in the same size. Anytime someone says the Cooper sidewalls aren't as a strong, I assume they bought the weaker sidewall version.

    With the 265/65/18s you can easily reset the speedo for accurate readings.

    The 265/65/18 spare does fit in the factory spare location.

    ... and the LR3 18s look way better than the Compos (spacers aside)

    How do you reset the speedo? I have 275/65/18's.
