I just bought 16x7 steel wheels for my 2000 disco. Will I be able to fit 245/75r16 on stock height? I was also looking at 225/75r16 but didn't know if they would fit either.
would love any help i can get, thanks.

1957 Series 1 swb tyre advice please

Good evening all,

I need new tyres for my standard 16" rims. I have been recommended 215/85/16 as best size or 205/80/16 as next best.

Is this correct and if so can you recommend a manufacturer and name for tyres that are great in snow and ice and fine for highway and some gentle off-roading and are available in Canada?

Many thanks,

Cheers to all and overflowing happiness in this life and beyond,

jenni.

I had 32x12.5" bighorns on 15x8 sunraysias on my cruiser, and would like the same for my discovery 1. It is completely standard so what will be needed for minimal scrubbage, as i always take it offroad?
Also what would this size be in mm?
thanks, Ben

Hello-
I am a new 2000 LR Ranger Rover owner. I will need to purchase new tires as the ones on now are not so great. HOWEVER- I looked on the inside of the driver's door and it quotes that the front tires should be 28 PSI and the rear 38 PSI. Sorry for the stupid question but is this right? I have only owned Toyota 4 runners and recently converted to LR RR- (I love it of course!) but am confused by the differeing PSI from front to back. Please let me know if this is normal - my tires now are old Yokohama 255/55/18. When I bought the RR from the owner she said the tires were in need of replacing- so I checked the cold tire pressure and they were each different PSI!!! Driver front= 33 Pass Front - 35 Rear driver = 35 rear passenger 36. . .Needless to say the drive was not so good- very unstable. . .any advice is appreciated and any recommendations on a good decent mid priced tire brand for this 2000 RR is appreciated too!! Many Thanks- DD

Since some people may choose to refresh their wheels before new tires, does anyone know the paint code for the factory wheels? Thanks

On my car, the door panel says 31psi in the front and 29 in the back.
But my older brother who knows something about cars said that I should follow the max pressure on the tire itself, which is 44. He told me to pump it to at least 40. But which one is correct?

265/60 r18 on 2001 Disco 2 LE

I'm a new owner and wanted to thank everyone that posted good information.

Here's my setup with before and after pictures...

I got the wheels from a Range Rover.

They don't rub anywhere. I do have heavy duty springs on the back.

I have some 265/75 r16's tires I was thinking of putting on the old 16 inch wheels for "play". Where am I at risk of rubbing?

People should be very careful about simplistic general advice like what is included here. For example, a road tyre will have a smaller diameter than a mud tyre in the same size tyre. The width of the tyre is measured at its widest part, that is, the bulge in the sidewall. It is not the width of the tread. The width of the tread will usually be the factor that causes any rubbing, etc. For example, I had a 235 tyre that had a wider tread than a 255 tyre. Finally, the tyre size is far from exact. The manufacturers are allowed to make tyres with the diameter being from 3% below the exact tyre size to 6% above. You can do the maths as to how much the actual diameter can vary on a 30 inch tyre. I have had 33 inch tyres that have measure close to 34 inch and 32 inch tyres that have been 31 inches.

So if people say that a certain tyre will fit a certain vehicle, make sure you are talking the same brand and tyre pattern.

p76rangie, thanks for the reply.

My question is regarding the original post and "minor rubbing";

32"

275/70/16: possible to fit without lift. minor rubbing.

265/75/16: possible to fit without lift. minor rubbing.


Where do I look to see if I have "minor rubbing"? In other words, if I put on a tire that is just a little too big, where would I want to keep an eye out for a problem. Do the fronts hit first or the backs? Is it the inner fender during hard cornering or when the spring compresses fully.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the Forums.

You will likely rub on the rear doors when flexed, you will rub on the front bumper cover and the back edge of the front opening. Also on the radius arms. I would not run tires that tall with no lift unless you are planning on cutting some clearance into those areas. Especially when you consider the amount of sag that stock suspension has by now.

With running 265 tyres on standard rims, you should also check the clearance on the inside of the tyres to things like shock towers. To check clearances jack up one front wheel as far as you can and the opposite rear wheel at the same time. You can also use car ramps, etc for the same effect.
