    D5 is a very capable car but stock 20 inch wheels are a joke if you want to take it off road.
    Did anyone tried to put 18 inch compomotive wheels on D5? Will they fit? And what would be max. size tire to fit without suspension mod. on 18 inch rim? LR4 with compos and proper off road tires looks much better and performs better. Any pictures of D5 with similar set up?.

    I have the 19" rims and the Pirelli Scorpion 255/55/R19 111H M+S on my D5 here in Western Australia. great tyre in the City, not too noisy and good on sand etc. Stronger sidewalls than the Continentals that come with the car, so far no staked tyres. Had the general Grabber 19" on my D4, a very good wheel etc.

    If after off road rims for rough work cheaper than Compos then try these https://www.tuffant.com/ I know some guys using them and they reckon really good and certainly much quicker and cheaper supply than Compomotive.

    I'm running 275/55/20 on a set of old LR4 wheels. BFG KO2. See my review thread for a pic (so as not to eat up the forum DB).
