2014 Sport SC on 24' Velos S4 Forged Wheels & Toyo Proxes II Ti

Dear Members,


Here is a 2014 Range Rover Sport Supercharged we recently wrapped up. The car was lowered via a lowering module and the car sits on 24" Velos Solo VI forged Wheels wrapped in Toyo Tires. Custom paint work was done to the body and brakes as well. Lastly we tuned the vehicle to 580HP with our Stage 2 Flash. Hope you enjoy and feel free to contact us with any questions.

Velos Solo VI Forged Wheels 24"x10
Toyo Proxes STII Tires 295/30/24

I see the rims ... where did the tires go! ;-)

It looks nice enough if that is the look one is after, but it just seems to be such a waste to totally negate the off-road abilities of the RRS.

Exactly - low profile, massive rims = show-off or rapper, not an enthusiast of the brand.

I want pretty aftermarket rims in a useable size!

I am all for after market rims and toys. Your money, go for it. However folks get bent on these great gaping spaces between anemic little spokes. This leaves the first look of "Oh look, teeny tiny little mismatched rear calipers... painted bright red so you really can see just how tiny they really are. Oh well, Dr Ruth may have had a point about size.

I will also agree with the above comments. It's all form over function. You have ruined the comfort and abilities of the rig unless you are crawling the mall. Heaven forbid you should be surprised by a speed bump and leave your kidneys behind.

I think car looks pretty solid

With the custom paint job, I would have included the bottom door mouldings and also the front and rear bumpers (the plastic bumpers)

I'm no "rapper" either....

The car does look fine ... some of those RR Overfinch conversions can be pretty ugly. But if all you care about is speed and your modifications make the car worthless for any basic light off-roading ... why not just buy a MB E63 wagon? You'll go much faster, have better handling (lower center of gravity), still have plenty of luggage space and the cost is about the same.

Its Florida. Nothing but endless open smooth as butter roads and a ton of sunlight. I don't think tire profile makes any difference down there. Look at all the sports cars with Florida plates... most have tiny tiny tire profiles. They look good and are meticulously maintained. In that environment this is sort of the "in thing" and its normal.

Looks good IMO.
I think I would prefer 22s just to keep some of the ride comfort. So probably 22 x 10.5

Here in Munich we have those kind of big aftermarket alloys mostly seen on Old pimped BMW 3 series and VW Golf's. In the class off Luxury Cars, we mostly not mess them Up.

For me this aftermarket Designs are destroying the still understated clean and funktional RRS look.

But the pictures and the detailing is very impressive, especially the matte-black front and Rear cover looks Good for the matte unpainted bumpers/sills.

I like the look but the 22's already have a stiff enough ride for me and I wouldn't go larger.

Understood completely, not too much off roading going on with these RR's here but we do have clients who opt for 22's with a slightly larger tire. Factory 22's run a 275/40/22 and these are 295/35/24 so not that bad.

Understand your point completely, to each their own though right? Other professionals enjoy Massive wheels as well, no need to stereotype.

Our dealerships here offer the calipers painted as an option from the factory but I do understand where you are coming from. Other than that I respect your opinion but even when building a Jeep we allow everyone to be unique. No rules saying you can't upgrade your RR to larger wheels especially when you go with a Forged option which produces a lighter and stronger wheel than the factory alternative.

Ditto! On my '11 RR I Color matched the side panels but I guess its not for everyone. Thanks for your unbiased opinion. "Rappers" have such a bad rep here huh?

... Everyone loves a RR, this Rig is actually owned by a Lady and so are other G63 & RR's in South Florida, California, NY. Nonetheless we appreciate the input and see where you are coming from.

Thanks and these Toyos offer plenty of meat.

All good, the feedback is great and I think it is cool hearing opinions from enthusiasts all over the world.

Understood and maybe a 40 series tire. We have seen a coupe of those, looking forward to building something like that for members here.

Omar, you are a good sport and handled our comments very well! I think you will find that many owners on this forum seem to prefer a more classic understated look and truly appreciate the RR and RRS for both its on and off road abilities, so probably not too many looking for 24" wheels.

Your participation here is appreciated and we always enjoy seeing new projects :)

22 x 10.5 is the balance. I've seen them with some deep concave in person, all I can say is WOW.

Thank you, appreciate it. I stepped out of my normal Euro, Exotic scene earlier this year and built a Rubicon... I think it was a good balance between functional and good looks but got a lot of heat for it lol. Ultimately I think its cool to get feedback from all of the world. Understood regarding the 24's I am just sharing builds. The beauty of it is our wheels are Forged so we can have them built in a 22x10.5 square setup. Actually looking forward to doing some of those for members here.

I know just all fun and games. Let me know if I can ever do anything for you.

Need some for your RR? or possibly a 20x12 & 20x10 setup for your GTR. Check out our homepage for a Black Edition we did earlier this year (I think it was a BE)
