Default Will 19" rims from an '03 Range Rover fit an '08 LR3?

All:

Here's the rim;



Came from a 2003 Range Rover MkIII/L322/Full size. I have seen ads where it says they will fit but need to know for sure before I commit to a 5 hour drive to get them!

If anyone can confirm, I'd really appreciate it. .

Paul.

I am running 19" RR wheels (2006 I believe and they appear different than your picture) on my LR3 HSE without issue. They have 4mm or so less offset but you can't tell and the vehicle drives fine.

That being said the wheels you mention will fit but the lug nuts will not.

You MUST use the correct lugs or big trouble. Land Rover changed from a square lug to a tapered cone .

Happy reading.

Compatibility Between Model Years and with LR3/Disco3/RR Sport Wheels:
Officially, 2003-05 Range Rover wheels are incompatible with later models and vice versa, and all RR III wheels are incompatible with LR3 and RR Sport wheels. RR III wheels have a 57 mm offset, whereas 53 mm is used on the LR3 and RR Sport. Also, the earlier Range Rover lug nuts had square ends and the D3/LR3/Sport ones have tapered ends (see photo at right). In 2006, Range Rover wheels were redesigned to accept the RR Sport and LR3 lug nuts. However the 57 mm offset was retained.


Photo at right adapted from TSB # LM-204-001 (July 2005) on wheel compatibility.

So, officially you are not supposed to mix early and late wheels, or use wheels from the inferior models.Unofficially, the later RR III wheels are fine on the earlier models if you buy the later lug nuts (about $400 for a complete set from the dealer, or less than half that from the Rover Connection). I know at least one 2003 RR owner who uses 2006 wheels with the old lug nuts and has reported no problems, but do so at your own risk!! Similarly, it is probably feasible to use DiscoIII/LR3/Sport wheels on the Range Rover (with the appropriate lug nuts), but the slightly different wheel offset may adversely affect steering and wheel bearing wear. If the 17 inch D3 wheels will fit (which I doubt, see above), they would be useful for short term use such as extreme off road expeditions, due to the much larger range of aggressive tires available for them.


If you have any other info on this topic, please email me).

Great news! So the inevitable next question- cheapest source of the older style lug nuts?

perhaps BP of Utah or Atlantic British. I think a LR set will run $200. I would look for 06+ 19" RR wheels off of Ebay. A steady floww of 19" RR wheels out of Cali. The wheels look better too. How is the rubber on the set you are looking at?

All:

Needed the different lug nuts and spacers on the fronts.

Here they are on my Father in law's '06;



I think they look great!

Thanks,

Paul.

They do look good. I am surprised you needed a spacer on the front. Wheels contacting the caliper?

Default Positive offset greater so maybe 4 mm matters.

The bigger the positive offset number, the more the wheel wraps around the brakes etc. Maybe 4 mm does matter, 53 mm v 57 mm.

There is also the question of wheel weight rating and if it matters.

The wheels of a 3 are rated at 940 kg; the RRSport, 900 kg, and the FFRR, in between at 925 kg. Does it matter? I presume Land Rover thinks so.

Yes. I added 3mm spacers and all was good.

I see this style of rim for sale cheap all the time- pity I had to put $200 into lug nuts & spacers!

They look good though. The king of cheap 19" wheels would have to be the latter Range Rover models. I know the 06 Range Rover 19" fit the LR3 without spacers or new lugs. They kick the tires in 3-4mm which is not noticeable.

The 19" wheel and the 255/55 size is quickly becoming the red-haired stepchild of the tire world though. Selection of quality winter tires in this size is disturbingly limited. Right now Pirelli Ice&Snow but even those are problematic in terms of supply.

Default You really want 18" but they are not cheap.

18" factory D3 rims with a 940KG rating is what you really want I would say. The problem is that everyone else wants them as well and that is why 19" are for sale everywhere and the 18" are hard to find.

The LR part number of the 10 spoke x 18" x 8" is as below is ALY72190U. These have the 940KG required rating. The FFRR wheels are generally less.
