Yep, the AT3 is exactly why I'm considering it.

Does anyone else have any experience of moving to 55% aspect ratio.
ie 255 55 R20 instead of 255 50 R20

Thanks

Just a tip on anyone going for Grabber AT3's (& maybe any other tyre).
When I got my 275/45/20s I became aware they offer both 110H and 110V load/speed ratings.
Also the 110H has an "E" wet weather rating, whilst the 110V has a "C" rating.
I went for the 275/45/20 110V and find it a cracking all round tyre. Wink

Thanks Darrind.

Do you do a lot of motorway miles? can you tell the difference?

I think my favourite solution at the moment is some 19" wheels, and I can go Black at the same time, plus Avon AX7 tyres.

But can't decide between:


OR



Also, daft question.
Can my existing TPS sensors fit any LR wheel?
Or are new ones easy to set up with my IID tool?

Thanks

Def 1st pic for me. Thumbs Up

Changed from 19's to 20's and moved TPMS valves over and all worked as it should.

Thanks for the Sensor info.

I'm leaning towards the second style of wheel at the moment.

I've always liked the style, they say more Lego Land Rover to me than the top ones, which say Jelly Mould Audi.

First set with AX7s then I can make my mind up too!
I have the same and was thinking gun metal / dark anthracite rather than black.

Cooper have an AT3 Sport 2 out (or soon to be) in 19" with M+S + 3PMSF - looks just like the AX7 but with the snowflake Wink

This is what I will be putting on my 19's now when they arrive in the shops.

Just remember your overall height will be slightly more, so look out in car parks etc about 0.7cm from memory


I make it 12.5 mm. Could lower the normal height using iiD if it's that critical.


Yep but remember half that is at top of the tyre so does not effect height Very Happy

Well that's how I worked it out
 D4 Landmark MY16 Santorini Black THE LAST
D4 HSE MY12 Marmais Teal: Gone. Missed a lot!
Freelander 2 SD HSE MY11 Silver:Thankfully gone.
D4 HSE MY11 Silver: Gone missed !
Range Rover Sport MY06 HSE Buck Blue: Gone missed!
Discovery D2 TD5 Facelift MY Red Gone Missed!
Discovery D2 TD5 Cobalt Blue: Gone Missed!
Discovery D1 Auto Oxford Blue Not missed at all!
Discovery D1 Avalon Blue First LR! missed!

Now demoted to a VW

Update.

I ended up with the first design of wheel shown above, not entirely because I prefer the design, but because I thought they'll be easier to move on at some point when I'm done with them.

I can't recommend enough Emerald bespoke who I purchased them from.
I went with Emerald rather than several slightly cheaper Ebay sellers as the wheels are Powdercoated rather than painted.

I asked them to fit the new Avon AX7 tyres and genuine LR Pressure Sensors.

I had no issues at all with the sensors being recognised by the car, they were all recognised withing @10 seconds from turning on the ignition.

I've hardly been anywhere with them yet, but think they look afr better than the Dimond Cut wheels, especially as I've already fitted Black side vents and painted most of the grill Black.

This is a terrible image, the car is dirty, but it was the first time I'd seen the car from a distance after fitting the wheels and was when I dropped the original wheels round to my storeage container.

Just a quick update.

I'm VERY impressed with the Avon AX7 tyres so far.

On dry roads in normal driving conditions you wouldn't know you had anything other than fully road based tyres on the car.

They've been great on the very wet flooded and also icy roads we've had recently, as well as on wet waterlogged long grass in a field.

I've not tried to launch my boat on a wet slipway with them yet, but did rescue a plant trailer with a broken down mini digger on it a couple of weeks ago from a muddy field, when the sites 2WD pick-up couldn't move it.
