Hi Everyone! I've just got myself a 2003 L322 Range Rover Vogue 3.0 TD6

I've been flicking through the classifieds for about a year or so lusting after a Range Rover. I've been going round in circles, looking at the cheapest Range Rovers listed, then looking at 2006-2008 TDV8 models about twice the price of the cheapos then looking at 2010-2012 TDV8 and trying to justify the 2/3x price tag to myself. I nearly went for a well nursed 2008 with an engine rebuild and full main dealer history but I was pipped at the post. I seen a 2003 come on cheaper than the rest and went for it. It's a bit of a dog but I'm gonna put it straight! I work at muddy festival sites in the UK during the summer and it'll be a dream to not get stuck and have to be pulled around by tractors.

I want to setup my landy to be able to best cope with the muddy conditions.

I was thinking along the lines of 16 Inch Alloys & BFG mud terrain tyres. Can anyone recommend specific rims and tyres?

Should I be thinking about a lift kit?

Anything else I need to consider for muddy conditions?

Thank's all!

Should be lots of threads on here about tire setup. You’d be glad to know that 16inch wheel do not fit L322s. Won’t clear the brakes/calipers. 18s will do with the correct offset. Most go for the compomotive 18s, some stick with getting the Lr3 factory 18s as a cheaper alternative. I myself bought a set of Lr3 18s. Whatever tires you get, make sure the diameter is less than 32inch. Anything higher you will need either a lift kit or adjust the eas system to new heights along with some wheelwell trimming.
