Unless you switched to a higher or lower tire profile than the stock 20s (275/40/20, I think), the 19" spare you have now will work just fine with your 20" wheels. In fact, back in the days when Land Rover used to splurge and supply the RRS with a full sized spare wheel instead of a dinky compact donut :evil: , they were including a 255/50/19 spare whether you had 19 or 20" wheels - the overall circumference of the tires being the same.

Since when did they stop the full size spare?

Other than LR being conservative on the 'dinky' spare, doesn't the full size spare (20") protrude out a bit due to lack of space?

AFAIK, since MY07 or MY08 they started putting in compact spares. MY06s in North America were fitted with full size. Yes, the full size spare (even the stock 19) does protrude a bit under the bumper... But I feel a lot better with one of those down there, rather than a more aesthetically pleasing, cheaper compact. :wink:

Um...Lenny? You bought wheels other than mine?

You had me hold on to these wheels, promising to buy them; that you had simply to wait for a lady to "paypal you", and you'd conclude the transaction with me - and you went and bought another set and didn't notify me, while I sat here?

:evil: :? :snooty:
