Hello all,

just got my new 2010 RR. Stonoway grey/black
I really want to add the 22 inch Overfinch or Stormer wheels. However I am really concerned about
messing with the ride quality. I would really appreciate any feedback from people with experiance with this matter.

Thx in advance.

I drove a few with large wheels when I was searching for mine... I felt like they made the ride a lot stiffer and more jarring going over bumps... which could be desirable depending on what you are going for... Personally, I'm not too happy with my 20" wheels, I wish I had 18" or 19" so I had better choices for tires. I think I will get smaller wheels when my current tires are worn out.

I wouldn't do it. Hurts the ride quality and looks too pimp my ride.

Not into the pimp look either..... Would like to give it a nice Euro look though.
The wheels I am thinking about in my opinion are tasteful for the RR.. But again not worth sacrificing the ride quality, That being my main concern!

if you are going to be on pavement only go with 22s. better handling than stock. I prefer over stock 19s (i have them on now for winter)

I recently got 2007 TDV8 which came with 22" wheels and I'm happy with look and ride quality

Also thinking about just slapping the new 20inch SC Wheels on her.......Figure that would probably b the safest bet.

My 08 with 19s rode smoother than my 09 that came with 20s but the 09 still rides nice. The Overfinch tiger 20 doesn't look too pimped IMO. Don't do the 22s.

Sure if your an old grandpa and your back is blown out then stick with 19s, better yet trade in your range for a Buick.

If you go with 22s get the larger 285/40/22 tire, they ride better than the pussy 35 series tire everyone seems to get.

You want to give it the Euro look? Well, here in Eurolandshire we mock people with stupidly oversize wheels on their car (any car, not just Range Rovers.). They're deemed to be wannbe footballers (soccer) with the corresponding poor taste that some sports seem to attract. I'm sure you have an equivalent example of sportsperson on your side of the water.

How does your post in anyway help the OP question? It doesn't, but thanks for sharing. :clap:

But your rather brash comment previous to mine did? Ok.

The Range Rover rides best on the wheels it was fitted with at the factory. Anything else will be a poor substitute.

There, some facts for you. From a 'Grandpa' with a 'blown back' (and a modicom of taste).

Can someone explain to me why you would take the ultimate understated luxury off roader which you spent a good bit extra for it's off road prowess and convert it into a rough riding pimpin ghetto cruiser that no longer has it's off road prowess. Would not a black S or Caddy make a much better donor car? ;)

Hey Guy's,

Thx for all the input..... I went ahead today & slapped on a new set of 20 inch SC wheels. Ride is really nice, Can not really tell any difference really.
The SC Wheels look so much better imo then the 19's I had!

Again thx for all your input......

The fact remains that anything over 20" seriously compromises the ride regardless of tyre choice. Both 18" & 19" will allow for the perfect ride as intended by the designers before the trend for large "designer" wheels got in the way. For off-road enthusiasts 18" or 19" is also the only relevant size for AT tyres.

If you want the pimped look without the intended ride then it's a free Country both here, Euroshireland & the US of A :D
