    None around town or moving the car around lowered. Time will tell off road but I think it’ll be fine. Less than 3% larger diameter than my stock 22s.

    What did you do about the speed being off since that is about 1" larger in overall diameter?

    I just purchased a 2018 Disco HSE with 20” wheels. The stock tire size is 255/50R20. I’m looking for an off-road tire option. The dealership told me that the tires below will work. They are 265/60R20 which seem like they would be too wide for the car. Three local tire shops agreed and suggested that I shouldn’t risk it. Does anyone have any experience with a 265/60R20 on the D5?

    BF Goodrich All Terrain T/A K02
    Goodyear Wrangler All Terrain Adventure
    Toyo Open Country AT II
    Yokohama Geloandar A/T

    Also, on the Goodyear site, they suggest the 255/50R20 Duratracs. This would be the perfect option but they don’t seem to be available anywhere (even one local Goodyear store had no idea how to order them as they couldn’t find the stock number for this tire). Does anyone have experience with this Duratrac option?

    Thanks.

    I've been keeping track of 18" options from Tuffant and Compomotive.

    The Compomotive PD1881 is now available for the SD4 but not the SD6. They have no ETA on when they'll be available for the SD6.

    Tuffant says that their 18" steel wheels will be available around December 2018.

    I'm still debating between these two options. I really like the look of the Compo PD1881 but I want switch to 18" wheels asap and Tuffant seems like the only manufacture that says they'll work on the SD6.

    Yes, you’re completely right - I meant 255/55R20.

    I just purchased a set of BFG K02s. The guys at my local Discount Tire were confident that 275/55R20 tires would fit. We tested one on the front and sure enough, in normal ride height, there was no impingement at the extremes of the range of motion. In access height, there’s a little contact on the extremes but it’s extremely rare that I will be driving in access height except if I’m in a very low parking garage. The tires look absolutely sick!
