    They won't. They'll fit 2009 and earlier S/C, or 2010+ models without the high-performance brakes, such as the S/C here in North America.

    I thought the compomotive 18s would not fit the 2010+ SC?

    Buying the Compomotives was the best decision I ever made. 2nd was the IIDTool! Well, maybe they're tied

    No one is forcing you to buy another set of rims - you indicated you were limited to the 19 inch rim, I'm letting you know that there is an alternative available in the 8x18 configuration with Compomotive. Whether you buy them or not is up to you...

    There is an after market solution for S/C or Brembo brake equipped vehicles...you can get the 8x18 Compomotive wheels (UK based), and those will fit. Should be a lot cheaper I should imagine in EU than in the U.S. due to shippping expenses, although you may have to pay higher VAT as well. That's a good alternative.

    Funny, I have same Brembo brakes on 3.6 diesel model, which also limit rim size to min 19".
    But maybe in USA they do it differently...

    I bought a second set Of 18" wheels for my 06 sport hse - and put a used set of 255/60-18 hankook dynapro atm's on ... Road noise , ride and handling not significantly different from my 19" Pirelli scorpion street tires - did an off-road weekend with landrover club and the tires were great - almost no traction loss on sandy, rutted trails - last year on the pirellis I had to get the sand ladders out at least once ....

    Only downside I can see is that these are rated 107t versus 112v xl .... As long as you keep speed close to us legal and are not planning to tow or exceed 8000lb loaded weight I think that should be ok ....tire temp after freeway run at 80mph was fine ....

If you can live with the speedo telling you are going 60 when you are really going 65, these tires would be a good choice for off roading with a S/C Sport, since 18s aren't an option and nobody seems to make 19s all terrains other than those Wrangler MTRs we cannot get in North America.
    You all seem to talk only about S/C model (= SuperCharged, right?)
    What about other RRS models? For example I have 3.6 Litre Diesel 2009 year model. Will same sized tires (up to 31.5") fit it as well or are there some differences between these models regarding max. tire size?

    I haven't yet. hoping to one day this week. seems the steering wheel wobble is the worst around 60mph. definitely not up to par.

    I did look up the balancing equipment you listed and the shop does have this equipment, i just don't think the tech was skilled enough to provide the desired result.. I'll put in a call to the manager to have it re-worked

    This is bad news for them on top of the greasy mess they made on my Almond leather while doing the work. It appears 5 minutes was spent balancing the tires and the remainder of the 2 hours was spent dirtying my interior

    Would you mind posting a few more up-close pictures?

    I also have the other style 20" Supercharged wheels on my RRS SC (I think they are referred to as the snowflake wheels) and I'm pretty sure they are the same width/offset as the Stormers.

    Thanks a lot for the insight!
    Running 275/45-20 LTZs. Yes, they are a bit louder than the Contis, but not unacceptable. Dry traction is similar, off road much improved, and so is snow. I only got 16K miles out of the Contis. A longer life from a harder compound was a selling feature for me too. Very happy after 5k+ miles.
