our 03 d2 has 18" rims fitted with low profile tyres can i fit d3 rims as i've been offered aset of 17" rims with nearly new tyres for a good price

yes they will as the disco 3 and range rover sport share the same bolt pattern/offset along with the disco 2! Why you opting for an inch smaller rim size??? Unless your going off roading?? Your really down grading yourself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I thought the D2 was different to the D3 but I don't know for sure... :unsure:

learn something knew everyday :lol: my colleague at work fitted 20inch stormers on his D2 and it does look pretty good, apparantly even BMW X5's wheels will fit as Land Rover where under ownership by them when they took out the ****ty X5. Mind you anyone putting X5 alloys on a Land Rover need their head read lol. Within a year of BMW launching the X5 they sold it back to Ford basically they copied Land Rovers four wheel drive platform as prior to this they had never developed a full time four wheel drive vehicle. Even the copy was a carp job no low box or nothing (not sure about the current one) my partners freelander one is better off road :D

cos 1 tyre for it is over 200 euro :blink: i can get 4 17s with very good tyres for a little more ,our irish roads and the potholes after the frost suck i'll be going back to 16s and a nice high profile soon :P

suppose can sort of understand the larger the alloy wheel the more prone it is to being buckled by pot holes :(

it's not the size of the wheel its the stupid low profile 55 tyre as there isn't enough sidewall to absorb the shock when hitting something

the 255/55/18 has the same profile as say a 235/70/16 but there is significantly more rubber in the tyre wall in the smaller wheel/combo

but the lower profile tyr is fine on a good road as there is less 'roll' on the tyre when cornering
