different Rovers? Different plates and wheels
Same Rovers but different wheels. I just switched from the stock 20" to the 2010 19" Factory wheels with Vredestein Wintrac4 Xtreme winter tyres. I prefer the look of a Range rover with 19" Wheels and chunky tyres is just the way I like them.

Kind of hard to see the car in the first picture, with all that white stuff above and around it... How do you call that white stuff, again?

Greetings from Southern California, 74 degrees and sunny today. :wink:

I like the second one. What size tires are those?
The Wheels are STYLE8 currently being fitted to the New 2010 RR Vogue where standard 19" are Specified.

The Tyres are 255/55 R19 Vredestein Wintrac 4 Xtreme Winter Tyres that are very suitable for year round use but have huge traction in snow and stick to Ice like glue.

They look real chunky in the "Correct" 255 size, I considered 275/265 but the Wheels are designed for 255 and they seemed wide enough anyway and in my opinion look just great - just the way a 4X4 Range Rover should look. Not all Poncy on 22"/24" with no rim protection and completely ruining the ride.

I should mention that driving on the new 19" wheels is SO SMOOTH its worth the change even if they did not look so great. A LR Technition told me that the Range Rover was designed to ride on 18" and no bigger than 19" . To get the correct radius 20" and bigger they simply do not supply enough tyre wall for the correct Range Rover ride....

Cab bounce over kerbs and not worry about the wife going shopping too :dance:

Very stylish and in proportion IMHO:



Great Chunky look with plentry of V shaped tread and very quiet and smooth plus XL so can run at 35PSI in Winter

I like the wheels in the first picture (original 20s) better imo. I just think it fills the wheel well better and matches the car more. But both look great.

I like the new tires, but prefer the old wheels. Personally, I wish I could find better tires for my wheels, mine are like your old ones except chrome (probably why I am drawn to your old ones also, because I'm used to seeing them on mine). For overall looks I would pick the first one because the tires aren't as big of a detail that you see immediately.
