    So I've purchased Proud Rhino 2.5" rods, bump stop kit (with straps), Black Rhino Barstow 20x8.5" inch wheels. Waiting for all of that get here. Soon I'm going to be purchasing Firestone Destination M/T2 33x12.5x20. Luckily for me, there's a shop near me that works on nothing but Land Rovers, and that's where I'll be taking it once I get all the parts. I'll record it all and upload an in depth video, of what it took to make them fit

    With the 2.5” lift will you need to modify the suspension geometry?

    If you have done the requisite mods, I would guess you would have more of an issue with the width than the diameter.

    I'm about to order a set of 265/70R18s which is also 33" to replace my 275/65R18s.

    Not sure I have heard of anybody making a 318mm wide tire work on these.

    My 275s are damned close to the UCA, as is. I would think 318s would either rub the UCAs or pop the wheel Arch moldings under compression.

    More power to you if you pull it off, and please post some pics.

    Good luck

    If I'm not mistaken, the load rating on the "stock tires" is 111 so this is an improvement. The main reason I went with this setup is because I wanted that tire. From what I've seen and read it's a damn good tire. Firestone doesn't offer it in a 33x12.5x18, so I went with 20". I also found them for less than $300 a tire.

    As I stated in my OP, I'm not actually doing any of this. I'm taking it to a local, reputable, shop who ONLY works on Land Rovers, and had heavily modified them
