    Really thinking about these lucky8 18’ wheels for my LR4 because of their price and tough plain basic but good looks. I was wondering if anybody had bought these already and what they think of them and if not advice if it’s not a wise choice. Also I noticed they said the factory tpms won’t fit on this and was wondering what non spendy alternatives there are to this. Let me know what you guys think.


    Thanks in advanced!

    I don’t know about the rims, but I’ve had great experiences so far with Lucky8. I would just call them - they are very open to questions and pretty honest in their responses.

    It's on their website.

    I like these wheels, too. Keep in mind, you have to use wheel spacers with them (the spacers are included in the price you have above). Wouldn't be a deal breaker for me, but would be for some.

    Yes i did notice that but i thought i could grind down the brake caliper to fit them without it but i could be wrong. Anyway what are the drawbacks of spacers anyway. Is it still worth the major discount from the other companies.

    You can grind down the calipers, but proceed at your own risk. Those fins on the calipers are there for a reason.

    Drawbacks of spacers are really just another potential failure point, and maybe a little bit wider backspacing than you'd otherwise want. That, and spacers + steel wheels and you're adding a decent amount of weight. But spacers only weight about a pound each, so it's not too big a deal.

    I worked with Erik...and Cullen.

    Erik’s number is: 716-898-8153 x.103

    It is his rig featured on the website so he knows a bunch about the Discovery.

    Honestly, everyone I’ve spoken with there has been great.

    Honestly I probably will just do the spacers I’d rather not risk grinding down the brake pad and potentially having to pay more for something I can pay a little more for snd prevent completely Also thanks so much for that number AaGro I’ll make sure to give him a call.

    I’m also in Phoenix, didn’t realize TuffAnt was local to here. Those were the wheels I’m looking at too.
