England 2013 Range Rover Autobiography SDV8 Santorini Black
Wheel options? 20 21 22"

Picked up my first FFRR yesterday from Land Rover Huddersfield, its a , 13 plate AB Sdv8 in Black with 22" alloys. Amazing machine but after a few hours driving around in my local area, I am noticing the very harsh ride on the 22s Shocked My test drive must have been on much better roads than where I live.

So My question is if I dropped down to 21" is there much difference or is it 20s I need to be looking at, if I change the wheels at some point?

IMHO, 20" with 255/55 tyres are probably the best combination. 2007 Vogue TDV8 in Zermatt Silver with Charcoal

With each drop, you’ll get a little more comfort - but a little more roll on roundabouts and corners.

I tried all 3 and as I’m mostly motorways and fast A roads, prefer 22’s - and they look better IMHO Thumbs Up

20" is best for comfort and looks like it's meant to be. 22's are harsh and more likely to suffer pothole damage, and some might say they look too big. Wink

Thanks for the replies chaps, I must say I would like to hang on the 22s as they do look great.

On another note I think I could be confusing the fact that I seem to have a knocking from the front suspension, that I was blaming on the low profile tyres. Its just a small knock on rough slow surfaces, I,m going to take it back tomorrow and give them some stick...

Check your pressures in the 22's, I have got both 22" and a set of 20's with off road tyres - the 22's are fine as long as they are not overinflated - I run mine on the light load pressures and they are fine. You don't need the higher pressures unless you are fully loaded with 5 people and luggage. L405 Vogue SE 4.4 V8 DIESEL ~ #16

Early 405’s suffer with suspension issues so make sure the dealer gets it right for you otherwise you will be driven MAD by rattles, knocks and a floaty feeling ride! If you need to pay for these then its VERY EXPENSIVE!!! Site Sponsor

Regardless definitely agree regarding ensuring right pressures. 2013 L405 AB 4.4SDV8 Luxor/Ivory, 2007 Vogue TDV8 Epson Green/Sand, 2008 Vogue TDV8 Buckingham Blue/Sand, 2003 Vogue 4.4 LPG Epsom Green/Sage, 1998 Vogue SE 4.6 LPG Epsom Green/Cream
