I picked up a 2000 Disco 2 and it still has the tires that were previously installed, BFG Goodrich KO 265/75/16. I have no issues turning lock-to-lock, still handles decent (given the size of the rover of course).
Only thing is, the previous owner had, at one point, eliminated the air ride feature converting the Disco to coils. I have not looked into whether or not this would have any effect on the ride height/clearance so it may be one thing to keep in mind.
Overall, the ground clearance is great, does wonders in muddy conditions, but my wife, who primarly drives the Land rover, hates the hop skip jump just to get in. In her defense, she is also pregnant.
Hope it helps,
