    Range Rover Mark II / P38

    Folks, I am looking at a 2000 P38 with only 60k on it. Very nice rig but owner says it can't be driven over 50 mph since he put on LR4 wheels. He's had it to a couple shops and the opinion is that the LR4 wheels are a bit large (on hub) so they are not seating quite in the center. Can anyone...

    We have owned our P38 for 15 years and it has never let us down.
