Speedos always read slightly over compared to GPS readings (satnavs, camera detectors).

Scotland 2013 Range Rover Sport SDV6 Autobiography Firenze Red

While I don't really find the ride bad with my 275/40/20's, any additional comfort would be good, but how does changing from the standard fitment affect insurance, warranty etc.? 13MY Range Rover Sport Autobiography SDV6 - mine

United Kingdom 2005 Range Rover Sport TDV6 HSE Java Black

After mot failure on one of my rears 22" rims ( 2 inside splits garage said they could of blown out Shocked ) A bit gutting to ditch the 22 stormers they look nice and have a good 6mm of tread left so no where near end of life, and considering I had to fit a brand new one on to get through the mot. But have been thinking of a change for while now, and after reading opinions on the 45 profile I went shopping around for a new set of wheels. I ended up at 4x4 tyres.co.uk They are mostly internet sales but being based in Stratford and local to me so gave the guys a ring. Chris & Lewis at 4x4 are friendly guys and cannot knock the service or price. I spec'd up what I was after and they booked me in for a early first appointment on Saturday morning. Drove straight in parked up, the alloys were ready and waiting/ balanced up, I was offered to inspect the goods before fitting and asked what style of hub cap centers I preferred the look of. After a quick inspection I got offered a coffee in their office/waiting room while my new set got fitted up.

During fitting they also found one of my nuts was swollen so they swapped that out for me with a new one no quibble on charge.

In the end went for the Autobiography style on a 275 45 profile shod with General Grabber GT's So far Really happy the extra profile and it fills the arch nicely, the ride compared to the 22's is smoother Thumbs Up The rims are not OEM but my last stormers were not either so fingers crossed on this one.

is there no way we can put as bigger profile on a 22" rim? or does this throw up a whole host of problems? such as rubbing etc.. D3 Sold but not forgotten, very good!!
