Scotland 2006 Range Rover Sport Supercharged HST Zermatt Silver
Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac 255/65/19 or 255/55/19

New to this so be gentle.

I could do with some advice regarding some off road mods I'm carrying out on my RRS Supercharged.

I've fitted a set of adjustable Johnson rods which give me 50mm lift in preparation to fit a set of Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac 255/65/r19s on Disco 3 rims, I've done a little bit of homework and everything should fit with a little bit of clearance.

Has anyone fitted this wheel / tyre combination ?
What will the larger sidewall drive like on tarmac ?
I have the option of the same tyre at 255/55 but think the 255/65 with more rubber on the sidewall will perform better off road and look better, would I be right ?

Thanks in advance , Rob.

Wales 2006 Range Rover Sport TDV6 HSE Zambezi Silver

Hello, Rob.

I fitted Duratrac tyres on my L320 and have had three punctures whilst off-roading - all of which were in the sidewalls. I'm not impressed and other people have told me to send the pictures/tyres back. Don't get me wrong, they grip well and clear the tread nicely but the sidewalls appear to be very vulnerable to rocks and to stones in the sides of ruts. I now take two spare wheels and tyres with me.

Not too noisy on the road.

Mostly peat bog and deep mud use for me so should be ok for punctures
