When the door handles start to resemble paint flaking due to the constant sun light in California like every west coast locale, this will add a crap finish since you've gone to the trouble of upgrading to 20" wheels and tyres on your Range Rover Vogue.
I saw an earlier thread here recently where a U.K. outfit is retailing chrome door handle covers which complete the look 100% & prevent the same problem experienced with all MkIII's, since my 'Classic' has flush fitting aluminium jobbies which are better !
Again the wheels look great-really matches the colour of your vehicle and down under we refer to the full size Range Rover HSE models as opposed to the Rangey Sport as "Vogue's", same for the MkII's as P38's and first generation Range Rovers as Classics.
I think BFGoodrich do their 'All-Terrain' pattern in the 285/55R20 tyre size which is used extensively for off-highway touring in Australia, as these fit the factory 20 inch wheels available on Supercharged and TDV8 versions where owners tow big caravans ?
Have a look at Range Rover Classic's from 1987+ available state side on this web-site and you can view the flush alloy handles which were installed on these trucks, as I've just spent the last Three hours this afternoon polishing my Cassis Red example !
If you go to www.youtube com and type a search Topgear-Range Rover and view the testing by Jeremy Clarkson of the full size Range Rover and the Rangey Sport, the diffrence between the two respective trucks is separate to the original design theme !
As he professors proper Range Rovers have a split tailgate at the rear, where as the Rangey Sport has a rear liftgate like Jeep.
The Vogue name plate was introduced in the late 80's by Land Rover to differentiate the Higline model from the more upmarket versions and then they created another model above this called the Vogue SE which had standard shag pile, leather and wood.
There are simple design features of the Range Rover Classics which BMW and Ford both missed in their upgraded models, such as did you know that the rear seating area has Three arm rests for two rear seat passengers-1 in the middle and 2 out board ?
It's "O" for awesome that your 20 inch rims are fitted with General tires, as I prefer these over the BFGoodrich All-Terrain ko2's & it's even better to hear that the wheel offset has been placed further positive so your wheel/tyre combo sit under the fender.
