L460 SV - 20" Wheels Possible?

I fitted 20" Range Rover wheels to my L405 SVA thanks to people on here saying it was possible and they knew people who'd done it.

On the door tyre info sticker it did not have 20" tyre pressures only 21" and Land Rover told me they would not fit, I had them on for 3 years with no problems.

Non SVAs were available with 20" wheels from the factory.

The same thing appears to be the case with the new L460 SV which I'm picking up in a few weeks. I want to put 20" wheels on it so I can fit proper tyres but only the Autobiography or lower trim levels are available with 20" wheels.

The brakes look identical sizes on the configurator.

Can anyone tell me if they'll fit? The only option is brand new from Land Rover as barely any (none on AT that I can see) are specced with 20" these days.

I suppose I could just buy one alloy and see if it clears the front calipers otherwise.

Thanks.

Looking at an online configurator for brake parts (I was looking anyway for something else), the L460 is listed with either 380 or 400mm front rotors. 400mm rotors do fit under 20's with a little clearance, and IIRC from a mate's S6 you can also fit them under 19" wheels for winters. So in theory they should clear just fine, but perhaps finding a 20" wheel from someone to try out first before committing to buying four expensive wheels would be a good idea! The only issue is likely to be caliper width, or some peculiarity with the shape of LR wheels.

Thank you that's helpful. I suspect I may have to buy one and test fit it without a tyre and hopefully return it if it doesn't fit! There are no 20" wheels for sale anywhere that I can see.

In theory, would an L322 or L405 wheel fit? I know the stud styles are different but I know you can fit L405 wheels to L322's and L460 wheels to L405's, so in theory the L322 onto an L405 should work although the L405 wheels are about 10mm greater offset IIRC. Plenty more of these about for very little money. Or even, assuming your dealer is relatively friendly, could you ask the parts or service desk if they had a wheel that you could try off one of their stock cars? My overriding experience with parts departments is that they are the most helpful bit of the business and usually quite willing to help with daft requests. If they think you're about to drop several thousand pounds on wheels with them they'll probably find a way of checking what will and won't work!

Could you ask your dealer to test fit a 20" spare wheel from a vehicle that has the 20" rims before you collect your vehicle? Late in 2009 whilst waiting for my 3.0 D4 to arrive and no other 3.0 D4s had yet arrived, my dealer was happy to try fitting an 18" D3 rim to a new 3.0 RRS for me.

I can certainly ask them yes, I don't know whether any other Range Rovers will even come with 20" though!

Good idea.

It's well worth asking them; you're spending the thick end of six figures with them, the least they can do is work out whether the 20" wheels will fit, even if it involves a phone call to another dealer who has stock with 20" wheels fitted! Where there's a will there's a way and all that..

Just to complete this topic in case anyone has this question in future:

The Land Rover dealer got me a 20" style 5134 wheel and tried it on in their workshop for me and let me have a look as they were doing it.

Although quite tight to the caliper (about 3mm clearance) it fitted fine once they'd removed the mud scraper metal wedge that attaches to the caliper. They can get a smaller mud scraper piece to match the smaller wheels, it's meant to help keep the inside of the wheels clear.

I will be fitting Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac 255/60/20 for my winter wheels.

So there you have it, you can put 20" wheels on an SV even though you can't spec them and the Land Rover dealer was happy to do it for me.

Not yet I'm afraid, I can post some in a week or two when I have them fitted if that's any good?

I have 20s on my L460 but I think a 60 side wall might push you close to the chassis outrigger in tight corners etc. duratracs are big. Let us know though, if it works without rubbing it would be an excellent combo.
