Discovery II - Tyres and Rims

On-Road

Rims: Land Rover Range Rover 16x8 5 prong alloy wheels. Offset 57mm

Tyres: Goodyear Wrangler MT/R 285/75-16. These tyres were chosen as a touring tyre. They provide good traction on all surfaces in comparison to most tyres. They also have a good strong carcass to resist failures, do not vibrate and have reasonable noise outputs and excellent road manners.

Off-Road

Rims: Land Rover Range Rover 16x8 5 prong alloy wheels. Offset 57mm

Tyres: Simex Jungle Trekker 2, 34x11.5-16. These tyres provide excellent off-road traction in all areas, especially where mechanical traction can be found. I have chosen the 11.5 width over the 10.5" width for additional smooth surface traction. The tyres have a strong carcass with their bias ply construction. They are noisy, vibrate, handle relatively poorly on the road, but are an unbcompromising off-road traction tyre.
