Why not to fit 23” alloys.

Had this in today,front left tyre keeps losing air

Removed wheel & found this


Then sanded paint off to reveal this crack in alloy


Not a real SVR Overfinch,,it’s a lookalike

How did they take the bad news?. Not everyone knows about the thoughts behind the size of alloys/tyres = strength & comfort, but they’ll find out eventually Whistle 2006 2.7 TDV6 HSE in Cairns Blue.

I bet a new wheel is probably in the region of £900.

Is the owner going to go for a bigger profile now? Chances are if it’s happened once it will happen again. 2012MY RRS 5.0 Supercharged Autobiography (Current)

No he's kept the same 285/35r23's on,Overfinch told him to run them at 48psi Shocked.I tod the customer that's why its probably split because when its hit a pothole the tyre is too hard & that's why its split,i took the rear off the same side & that is slightly buckled but not split. Andy.

35 profile and 48psi ... might as well fit a set of these and be done with it!

The TDV8 "replaced" a 2014 Ford Ranger .. I still miss the Ranger.

Australia 2006 Range Rover Sport Supercharged Bonatti Grey

Be careful the 22" rims that came with my RRS s/c did not leak. 2 Wheels proved almost impossible to balance. Confused
It turned out that both wheels had 2 cracks that were found when putting weights on the inside of the wheels. Sad
This could have led to a whole piece letting go and heavens knows what that may have caused.
For Highway use now have 20" with 275/55 A/S tyres(lots of sidewall) and for out in the bush 19" with 275/55 A/T tyres. Very Happy 2006 4.2 S/C with Tow Pack, Side Steps, DRL's, 19" & 20" wheels, additional 110 ltr Fuel Tank Roof Rack and performance mods.

1952 Rover 75 (Cyclops) First Car !!! Fond memories -was restored-good for 93mph.
