I am in the process of setting up a set of dedicated offroad wheels/tires. This topic seems to be discussed at great length and in excellent detail.

I'm interested to hear other members opinions and experiences with:

1. Suggestions for swapping wheels quickly and easily (ie, airjack, Floorjack, etc).
2. How to properly store the "other set" to prevent flatspotting or other problems. Keep inflated? Store on their sides?
3. Any tips on the wheel change procedure (raising vehicle to extended height?).
4. Does one need to have tpms on the recreational set if not used for daily driving?

Hope this prompts some great discussion.

Thanks in advance.

Firstly, which part of the globe are you based, as this would provide some guidance on replying to your questions in detail dude ?
Answers;
i) Establish a relationship with your local tyre dealer so using their equipment is faster and easier to swap rims and tyres,
ii) I have Four other tyres on rims sitting comfortably on an old foam lounge suite sitting vertically for Six months till winter,
iii) Rotating wheels on same side of the truck aids space utilisation & convenience with two vehicle jacks and mortar bricks,
iv) And fitting aftermarket tyre pressure monitoring caps to each valve stem on the spare set eleviates the need to use TPMS !

For my offroaders:

1. Floor jack, I haven't tried to do a whole side at once, just one corner at a time.
2. I keep them inflated and stack them 2 high (partially because it's harder to get the 4th one up there!)
3. You want to put it in offroad height so you don't have to jack up all that yourself - plus I think it's recommended in the manual anyway.
4. I went with TPMS since a bit of my offroading requires traveling to the Land Rover National Rallies each year - you don't have to get them though.

Gents.

Go see www.4xforum.com with the 'Guru' himself illustrating the use of an aftermarket tyre pressure monitoring system device !

For those of use less fortunate to have an earlier edition Range Rover without TPMS, what can we use to display the pressures ?

Dear old Vinnie...all that globe trotting has blurred your vision.

See that section under your name where it says Location - so our new and illustrious Nara Bronze member is located in HOUSTON!!!
