  1. 22" Stock Tires on Forest Service Roads

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Yeah, I understand the 22" rims are not ideal for off-road travel. Heading to NM and CO and wanted to spend a little time on standard forest service roads. Nothing technical, but rutted,washboard, etc. I obviously can't air down, or should I say, if I did, I don't expect it to help much...

  3. Repair Shops in the Hampton Roads Area

    General Chatter
    So my 2006 Range Rover Supercharged with only 53000 miles on it just popped a check engine light. Took it to the dealer and they said I need 5000 worth of repairs. Was looking for a local shop that might not gouge me so much. Thanks in advance for any and all help.
  4. Mild rattling over rough roads

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    We have our 2016 RR ATB for about 3 weeks now. Recently we've been noticing mild rattling sound over bumps and rough road. It gets very annoying sometimes, like it is falling apart! I trouble shooted a bit while my wife was driving today...it appears to go away when each front window is dropped...
  5. 2008 RR L322 - Rims and Tyres for rough roads (Kenya)

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hello everyone, I hope this is the right place to get some solid advice on the right rims and tyres for my 2008 RR L322. I recently imported my RR from the UK to Kenya, and it came with 22' rims and SUNITRAC 285/35R22 tyres. They looked great (if somewhat 'pimp-ish') but they are...
  6. Low range on sealed roads

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Is it true that you can't drive in low except at very low speeds and in unsealed roads? I suspect this may be an urban myth as I can't find any reference to warnings about this in the literature. My old Disco had a diff-lock with a handbook warning to leave it unlocked on sealed roads and a...
  7. How do the 22" wheels/tires perform in snow/rough roads ?

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    How do the 22" wheels/tires perform in snow/rough roads ? Id like to upgrade from the 20" w/ pirelli scorpions to the 22" w/ yokohama prada spec-x. Anyone have experience with this 22" wheel/tire combo ? My concern is how they might perform on the horrible/pot hole full streets of Chicago...
  8. Looking for new tire advice... 22" & OK for wet/icy roads

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Looking for new tire advice... 22" & OK for wet/icy roads Hey all, I'm looking to replace my tires with rubber that is better suited for all weather driving. I am one of those RR guys who rarely, if ever, takes my rig off road. However, I do hit snow country a couple times a year and right...
  9. Canadian Electronic Toll Roads (and EzPass too)

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    The heavily travelled electronic toll road that loops around Toronto ON is Highway 407. To avoid expensive "video toll" charges mailed to your registered address for the license plate, you get a box that mounts on the inside of the windshield, and sign up for an account. This is very similar to...

  11. Struggle with steering on uneven roads

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi, When driving my recently acquired P38, over 40 mph, if I drive over a piece of uneven road (which there are lots of in England!), the car goes all over the place (almost violently) and I have to really struggle steering the car back on the line that I intended driving on - it happens both to...
  12. Rough Roads Ahead

    Range Rover Classic
    My wife and I are planning to circumnavigate the state of Oklahoma in our 1993 Range Rover LWB. While some of this travel will be on blacktop, a good portion of the north and west borders will be on barely maintained county gravel and dirt roads. Thinking of bumps and vibration etc... is there...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322

  14. Selecting dampers/ springs for rough 'roads'?

    Range Rover Classic
    Hi! Currently in Kenya and have bought an old 2-door RRC that's been fitted with a 3.9efi and ZF4 auto. Previous owner had fitted twin shocks in a 'V' formation at both rear corners, single shocks in the front. He also fitted heavy duty springs and the car now has a very hard, unsettled ride...
