  1. Best snow tires ever! - Boulder CO Foothills

    General Chatter
    FWIW, I'm a tire guy, and I won't bore you with the years of moaning about the lack of good 19" off road wheels. (have settled with the dedicated off-road wheel set with Goodyear Duratracks, miss the MTR's I could get for a few years -- where's the triple ply sidewall and Kevlar!). I have the...
  2. Stuck in snow

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I recently purchased a 2006 RR Sport and was surprised to discover I was briefly stuck with both right wheels and left rear in a foot of snow while the left front wheel was on pavement. I assumed all wheels turn on the RR and that the lone front left tire on pavement would've easily pulled me...
  3. Nokian Hakkapeliitta R3 SUV Winter Tire - Initial Impression

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    <u> First impressions in Snowy Conditions: Fitted to my 2014 RRS SC a month ago. In our first snowstorm of the year in the area, I tested them out on a drive to our favorite local hiking location and was very impressed. The tires provided excellent initial grip in approximately 7-9 inches of...
  4. Terrain Response - Snow?

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    I'm curious what the Terrain Response Control in my 2017 RRS HSE Td6 actually does. I fitted snow tires last week (Nokian Hakkapeliitta R3 SUV) and played around a little with the Snow Mode. It appears to dull the throttle and pull-away in second gear. Does it lock any diffs (are there diffs...
  5. 2004 L322 Undriveable in the snow?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hi, we have a L322 and the last time it snowed it was simply impossible to drive or get anywhere. The car simply struggled to grip and slid on the camber in to the pavement thankfully avoiding all cars and trees and slid down any inclines. When we pressed the DSC button the light comes on but...
  6. Wheels accumulate dirt and ice... how to prevent?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hi, I am new to Range Rovers. WE LOVE our 2006 RRS SC (I hope that is the short cut name). One problem we are encountering. We live in Michigan, on dirt road---and have noticed that the wheels on this vehicle seem to have high propensity to accumulate ice/snow/mud---making an out of balance...
  7. 3.0TD L322 - 2004 - Impossible to drive in the snow

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hi, my father has the above range rover and the other day we had a little bit of snow and it was simply impossible to drive. It slipped and skidding constantly, impossible to drive a short distance with any sort of control and he nearly slid in to a number of cars whilst driving very slowly...
  8. snow performance

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    so i had my 2010 SC in the NYC area storm today. I just had new blizzaks out on and im pretty disappointed with the overall performance/stability of the car. With full snows like blizzaks its very twitchy and unpredictable. I also drove my lr4 which has nokain WR3 (not hakkas) and it was much...
  9. snow tire/M&S for Canadian road conditions

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Heading to Canada this coming week and checked their department of transportation site; they stated that a "snowflake or M+S" indicator is required at this time to comply with regard to their weather. I'd be hard pressed to have TG G2's or an AT tire? I'd hate for them to turn us around because...
  10. 22” winter tires. It’s not ideal for deep snow.

    Range Rover Velar / L560
    But it is ideal for looking good at the whole foods parking lot in the middle of winter. So I went ahead and did it anyway :) At the very least I now have some solid winter capability without taking off these 22” beauties. Pirelli Scorpion Winter. It was the only winter tire available in...
  11. Wheels and Tires in the Snow

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hi everyone! I'm a Colorado native who just moved back home, looking to purchase a 2017 HSE Dynamic in the next month or so. I am a fine art/landscape photographer and definitely plan to use this thing in the mountains and off-road year-round. I was looking over threads discussing wheel and...

  13. P38 Snow Chains

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hello. I have done a search here but haven't come up with the right answer - I hope you all can help. I have a p38 on 255/55 R18. The wheel bolt sizes appear to be 25mm (tell me if I'm wrong - but this was measured with a vernier gauge so is pretty accurate - but not having a 25mm socket at...
  14. Winter Is Not Far Away- Snow Tires

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Curious if anyone uses studded tires- I live in NY-metroplitan area, but like to ski- are they necessary/better, and is the noise that bad- was thinking of Nokia Hakkapellitta 8 or for nonstuddedthe R2 SUV? Anyone use either? thanks...
  15. Snow Day!

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hey all, snow day here in Colorado with a BIG spring storm rolling through brining 18" by the end of the day. Parts of my drive were definitely over a ft, but managed to snap a few pics. The truck has BFGoodrich K02's on it, meant to snap some better picks of the setup before it was in action...
  16. Got almost 2 feet of snow in 8 hours...... NO PROBLEM!!!

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Woke up at 2pm today to a winter wonderland that proved to be a snowy hell for all the 2WD cars in my neighborhood. As I blew the driveway clean I watched as neighbor after neighbor drove into our neighborhood in their little cars, slowed down for fear that they'd lose control and then get...
  17. Tires for Ohio Winter

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    We just ordered a 2016 Range Rover Sport Dynamic Supercharged. The wheels are beautiful but I'm thinking that we should get "winter" wheels and snow tires for the Ohio winters. Any suggestions? Will 19 inch wheels fit the Dynamic and do all season or snow tires make sense? Thanks for any input...

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    anyone on here have experience with the 22" wheels with the stock a/s tires on L405? we only have a month or maybe two left of winter here so i am not sure i would purchase a dedicated winter tire now but i would for next year. how well did the factory tires perform in cold temperatures and...
  19. RRS . Terrain Response settings for DEEP SNOW ...

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Greetings, Sat morning I was faced with unplowed 24-30" of snow when I tried to get my GF to hospital (her staff failed to show so she provided over 300 meals Saturday !). I have 19's with Cooper Zeon LTZ A/Ts. The snow setting struggled as I would drop down through dry snow and hit icy...

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    I live in the Washington DC area and we have had 24+ inches and more to come overnight. I live on a country road that will not be plowed for a few days. I am an off road newbie - no real experience. Any recommendations? I am assuming that raising rhe suspension to high and switching the...
