My bet is that it'll be at least as tight a fit as my 285/60/18, meaning you may have to remove the heat shield behind the exhaust and leave the spare tire almost totally deflated to get it to winch up there. But it should fit, hanging out just a tad more than the stocker you have now.

    Re: New 18" and 20" All Terrain tires

    Anyone have a recommendation for a good all weather tire for a RRSport SC w/ the Brembo/stormers on it?
    I read the posts here and redmann runs these Cooper 275/45/20. Looks a little aggressive like it might make some noise or vibrate at freeway speeds?? not sure.

    I'm looking for something all year round in northern CA where we get a heavy rainy season from Jan - March and I use the car mostly for lake tahoe with limited if any off road use. Although I'm thinking of Sierra off road tour this summer near lake Tahoe.

    Looking for a profile that wont hose up my speedometer.
    Maybe something available from the tire rack? www.tirerack.com

    I buy my sport car tires there and have been happy.

    Not sure what comes on the car from the factory I bought mine used. Heard there were problems with some of the factory provided rubber vibrating at high speeds.

    Maybe some of these???

    Pirelli Scorpion Ice & Snow 275/40/R20
    Continental ContiCrossContact Winter
    Michelin Latitude Tour HP

    The RangRover.net site lists these as options but most don't appear to be all season or snow rated tires?
    275/40R20:
    (Stock size for Supercharged models)
    Continental 4X4 SportContact
    Dunlop Grandtrek PT9000
    Hankook Ventus RH06
    Michelin 4X4 Diamaris

    I have the Cooper Zeon LTZ 275/45/20 tires on my SC Sport. I've put almost 20,000 miles on them. They are great tires. Not much louder than the stock POS (my opinion) Continentals. I live in Seattle and we had a lot of snow recently. A friend had his RRS HSE in deep snow/slush and was stuck and had to rock the car back and forth to get out. I drove circles around him while he was trying to move.

    I found out about the Cooper tires on this site. I'm really happy with them. I use them year round.

    I got them at Discount Tire.

    We've got a huge contingent of the club doing another beach run this Saturday if you are interested. If so, I'll send you the details...woudl be great if you can join us. We are going again to Bolivar, then down to Port Arthur/Sabine Pass (50 miles on the beach), deep sand...lunch on the beach then back home.

    No body damage likely at all, just fun with sand mode!

    They were under $200 per tire. Somewhere around $175 or so.

    Re: New 18" and 20" All Terrain tires

    I've read all the awesome reviews about the Cooper LTZ tires however, I was wondering if there is anyone out there that has tried the Nitto Terra Grapplers and the Coopers. I'd like to hear the opinion of someone who has seen both tires in action.

    So far I see an upside to the Nittos because I will not have to worry about the speedo if I get them in 255/55/18. I beleive the smallest 18" Cooper I can get is 285/60/18.

    since this was an older post and it seems like people made their choices a long time ago i just wanted to hear some new thoughts.

    You can get them for $130 a tire from Tread Depot. They have a $25 coupon off when you buy a set...so even cheaper. I'm waiting in a couple of months to pick these up after all the good reviews.

    What the Coopers have over the Nittos are grip, they are softer and bite a bit more. If you are speaking of the 255/55/18s, then I assume you aren't taking them off the pavement. If you are though, the Coopers are a 1/2 step above the Nittos.

    To the Seven Dwarfs.

    It's great to hear about all new tyre fitments in 18" and 20" varieties suitable for either our on-road or off-road behaving.

    Each tyre manufacturer has a unique feature if this is to do with the tyres construction, number of plies, rubber compound or pattern suitable to relevant parts of the world with differing conditions, loads to be carried, specifications and speeds.

    Has anybody carried out improvements to the suspension instead of just the replacement tyres to achieve an overall smarter outcome of plus/minus fitments appropriate to their location ? I haven't heard from thread members installing Koni/Bilstien or other brand shock absorbers or even swing away tyre carriers which solves the spare wheel size limitations !

    Once we all start driving around in gumbo sized-rubber plantation sapping-round black things, there is definitely going to be other concerns related to the gearing of the truck, weight of components, running ground clearance and stopping power.

    Cheerio,


    Vinniman.
