Need advice on choosing between two sets of genuine 20"

Originally, my RR was equipped with the LR008766:


But when I bought it, it was on a silver variant of VPLMW0061:


which are quite beat up now. I also had to replace them with the 19" LR013925 temporarily as the tyres on the 20" started delaminating (the car was shaking when driving at speeds between 15km/h-80km/h and having replaced/reconditioned most of the suspension I finally figured it was the tyres).

I'm now considering buying a set of new rims and I'm trying to choose between the original LR008766 and the dark grey variant of VPLMW0061, which I rather like (pictured below):


The advantages of the VPLMW0061 are: 1) weight - 16kg vs. 40kg LR008766; 2) price - £120 vs. £420 for LR008766.

However, it's those advantages that concern me - my worry is they might be not as tough as LR008766.

I would appreciate if anyone could share their experience with any of these rims and thoughts on the matter as well.

Thanks!

Are those 6 spoke wheels genuine?

At less than half the weight of the genuine one's I'd say they were a bit suspicious. 2017 4.4 SDV8 Autobiography

I can't see a 20" alloy weighing 40kg really.

Agreed. And it doesn't. According to LR it weighs 18Kg. The VPLM0061 is actually 170grams heavier Wink

Yes, they are indeed. The price from the distributor is in line with what I get from independent suppliers and also the original catalogue has them listed - https://www.uniquecarsandparts.com.au/broc...r%2053.jpg

Thanks, Bl4ckd0g! You've brought the clarity I was seeking. The online catalogue I was quoting for info must be wrong.

8766.

My favourite wheel on a 322. Nice though the 5 spokes are I’ve always liked the Vspoke.

Had them in smoked chrome/anthracite on my old 322.

I like the 0061's ..... and not so many about (was going to say not as common - but that could be taken 2 ways LOL).

At the end of the day it's your car and your choice - which wheel design will make your FF feel most special?

These are mine, the dealer had just refurbed them when I bought the FF, said it cost him £300.

0061 for me all day long, a nice wheel and easy too clean and the diamond cut gives them a nice touch.

I'm particularly fond of the 0061's too....

I recently had mine refurbished, I toyed with having them finished in the anthracite with the diamond cut detailing, but in the end I opted for just having the whole thing painted in silver... Diamond cut finish is an utter nightmare imho, I've had a few cars over the years that have had wheels finished this way and they all suffer horrendously with 'white worm' corrosion...

L322 wheels do pop up here and there on the local classifieds websites and forums. Unfortunately, not a lot of choice. Sometimes they are welded, powder painted, and just poorly refurbished - people over here generally have no appreciation for the structural rigidity of their rims.

I like the red/grey contrast!

This is pretty much what mine looked like when I purchased it. But the 20" 0061 have been refurbished poorly and in a rather sorry state. Thinking of just selling them for cheap.

I know what you are talking about. But with the salt on our roads, the corrosion kicks in in about 5 years regardless of the finish, especially around centre caps.


Thanks for posting the responses!

Unfortunately, with the current situation around tyre sizes, I'm now leaning towards 19". Mainly because I don't want Scorpions, but rather Duratracs, and those only come in 55 sidewall and up; and I'm unwilling to add another inch to my wheels mainly because of increased suspension load and decreased power. 2009 Range Rover Westminster 3.6 TDV8 Alaska White/Jet
