Hi everyone,

Looking for some advice here, I have a 2009 range rover sport HSE with the LUX option. I didn't get the wheel option with the 20 inch wheels offered by LR from original purchase, but two weeks ago I decided to buy the newer 20" wheels that come on the 2010-2013 model of the RRS. I found somewhere on the internet that the biggest tires I could fit on my 20's on my RRS would be 275/55 20, so I found some Pirelli Scorpion ATR's in that size and had them put on my new rims. They look SICK, but they barely fit. In fact, there are 2-3 places in the wheel well where I can find places the tire has rubbed. It doesn't seem to be anything really bad that could cause serious damage(it's only when I make sharp turns I think), but obviously I'd like to avoid any rubbing at all. My original idea of getting these large tires was to find some tires that would really tear through the snow this winter, and possibly be able to do a little off road action if I could find a place to do it that wouldn't destroy my truck. Any suggestions you may have would be great. I appreciate any and all answers in advance.. thanks!

That's a 32in tire. There might be some small suspension options. Idk. Biggest would fit on my disco was 275/45/20.

thanks for the suggestion disco biscuit, I was originally considering that as well but I'm not sure if that would do the trick due to the way it rubs it seems as though when I turn all the way in one direction it touches a little in possibly two spots, also I think the way the wheels give a little forward and back while driving causes it to rub as well. If anyone has done this before I'd love to hear what you've done or if there are any suggestions of how to correct the situation without getting new tires I'd like to hear that as well.

Put a 2 inch lift kit on it :) Or be cheap and put 1 or 2 inch spacers... :sheep:

I do agree installing a wheel spacer would be the cheapest solution with your problem. But if you have some future plan in off roading, lift kit would be the best.

spacer

You could opt for the spacer but you may end up rubbing on the other side of the wheel well. I suggest doing a 5mm spacer first to see and go from there as long as you are dead set on using those same tires...
