New RRS owner. need wheel advice

Hello all

Also...
Will a LR008548 - 20 inch 9.5J 15 Spoke Alloy Wheel - Sparkle Silver Finish. fit with 2005/2006 sport? ion so will buy and put cheap spare on

1. is the 19 ok?

2. will the LR008548 - 20 inch 9.5J 15 Spoke Alloy Wheel - Sparkle Silver Finish. work on this generation of RRS?
Thanks

The 19 will be ok if it's 255/55/19 as that is very close to the 275/45/20. 255/50/19 is a bit small. It won't wind up a diff as such but it might annoy the stability control system enough to make it intervene at times.

Does the RRS you are buying have Dynamic Response? If not, check that it has the updated steering rack. The early RRS didn't come with large diameter (20 inch) rims. 2012 SDV6 - it's missing a couple of cylinders
2008 TDV8 - it was a labour of love and is much missed

Hi Pal just let you know having different wheel sizes on a single axel, not only is it illegal and can earn you 3 points , but should you be involved in an accident your insurance will be null and void! So please be very careful and also MOT Failure

Except in the case of the emergency spare wheel which is often a different size and also speed and distance limited for use. One of the legal quirks with wheel sizes. The rest of your statement is correct if used as normal wheel. John

A LR008548 wheel rim now a LR027544 will certainly fit a 06 plate car, and with a 275/45 x 20 tyre it will also fit up into the spare well O.K. with no problems.

Cheers
