New tyres

Any decent tyre deals out there ?? 255x50x20 seems a pricey size.

Sadly I need all four replacing - the Fatty certainly likes to munch through the fronts. Current: FF Westminster money pit

2011 Range Rover Vogue SE TDV8 Orkney Grey

When I bought my car it had Nexen Roadians on. They were OK, a bit harsh and noisy but OK. Certainly good value for the mileage I got out of them.

Now I have Pirelli Scorpions and they are quieter and feel a bit more compliant, but that might be the new tyre feel good factor!

The Nexens did 40k miles comfortably. We'll see how the Pirelli's do. Bish.

if you need 4 tyres then go for 255-55-20.
Much nicer ride with extra sidewall height and your speedo will read correctly too.
I run General Grabber AT3 and love them
Cheaper than standard Pirrelli's and IMHO better 2007 Vogue TDV8 in Zermatt Silver with Charcoal

This is an interesting point. It's the same thing here in North America. When looking for new P255/50R20 OEM size tires, I seem to notice that size being priced higher than other similar sizes that are commonly used with our Rovers. Case in point, I'm running P275/45R20 in summer and P265/50R20 in winter. Both of those sets are less expensive than the equivalent tire set in P255/50R20. 2010 RR SC

20's certainly bump up the price, i swear by pirelli scorpians, and have tried several other brands on the Fullfat but none seem to wear that well on the fronts. i have 19's and they generally come up at £130 a corner, i tend to go to black circles.

That said i have ordered the tyres and gone to my local fitter who charges £10.00 a wheel.

Check out your bushes and anti roll bar links or go round corners slower, the missus charges round corners in ours!

No need to inform insurance. Its not a performance mod. The load rating is more important than the speed rating. H rated tyres and above are fine. 2007 Vogue TDV8 in Zermatt Silver with Charcoal

Well strictly speaking you should inform your insurance company about any “modifications” to your vehicle, especially anything which is NOT an approved fitment, which of course the 55 profiles will be.

Having said that I never bothered Wink David

Please let me know if my comments upset you, I may wish to upset you again.
