    Question on switching OEM 20" to 19" wheels on RRS S/C

    Have an '11 rrs s/c and would like to switch to a 19" wheel. Will all OEM 19" rrs wheels fit over the front brakes? Also, what is the best/cheapest source to purchase oem wheels?

    Yes, both styles of 9x19" rims from earlier model year RRS will fit your 2011's front high performance brakes, same offset and lug nuts (just make sure they are 9" deep OEMs that came off a 2006-2009 Range Rover Sport. Other Land Rover OEM 19" wheels from different models may not fit.) Unless you must have brand new rims, you will routinely find several sets for sale on eBay, $300 to $900 depending on conditions and whether or not tires are included. Few random examples:

    Thank you for the quick reply. Do you know whether the wheel-weights will still be able to mounted inside the wheel, or will they need to be on the outside perimeter?

    Land Rover recommends stick-on weights glued inside the wheel, not clamp-ons on the outer edges. There's enough room for stick-ons. Make sure your tire shop doesn't "double stack" them though, as they may contact the caliper otherwise. And try using a shop equipped with a Hunter Road Force balancing machine.

    See my sig pic. They are 19's I sanded, primed and painted in my backyard. The folks who mounted the tires put the sticky wheel weights on the inside. This is my offroad set and I think it looks pretty darn good.

    They do look great, Mike.

    How about this 19'' wheel? Will it fit a 2012 S/C? Can't find a reference on the RR website.

    Not sure about MY2010+, but those 15-spoke 19s don't fit pre-2010 models with Brembo brakes. Spokes are too shallow and hit the brembo calipers.

    That does look good. What tires are you running? Do you daily drive those tires? Are they noisy?

    Umberto - would these '2005' wheels fit the 2012 S/C? I quite like the idea of these in black.

    Yes, those 9x19 and the ones below will fit just fine. Any other 19" styles I am not sure about.
