For 2025 JLR is no longer offering a Defender that will conform to the US industry standard for tires & rims - the 18". This will force the 18" shopper to the 19" rim. Unfortunately, tire companies don't make alot of offerings at that rim size. JLR must think NOBODY would willingly buy a 3.0L mild hybrid Defender on 18" rims?! IF JLR adopted the industry standard (as everyone else has done:rolleyes:), what do you think market reaction to that would be?
