    Default 2000 Land Rover tires

    Howdy all, got a new to me 2000 Discovery and looking at tire options. Currently set up with 225s on stock 16in rover rims and stock suspension.

    Looking for recommendations on the largest tire that will fit without major mods or rubbing offroad.

    Seems recommend on other forums is either 245s or 255s.

    Wondering how much 31/10.50s would rub.

    Also what's hot in newer mud terrains, tire tech and rubber compounds have changed over the years need these to handle the road but prefer a bit more aggressive for offroad.

    Comments are appreciated but let's stick to topic instead of bs thanks!

    I do like bfgs.

    Seen where the super swamper trxs have been recommended n use to run iroks on my dodge, it take alot to put 37s under the rover.

    Also had a set if japanese hankooks under that dodge, wore well for street but didn't pull in mud, desert was ok but the lava chewed em up.

    Cooper SST's got great traction for me, but wore out in about 35K miles as I recall. Hard to go wrong with BFG. Loved Goodyear Wranglers back in the day, but hit a run where about 10-12 tires belts separated and gave up on them. Remember that the more aggressive the tread, the shorter the highway life.
    If I had a dollar for every time I thought about you, I'd think about you more often.


    I dream of a tomorrow where a chicken can cross the road without his motives being questioned.

    245/75/16 is the factory size tire on a LOT of vehicles so if you look into that size, you will have more options and prices will be cheaper too.
    Prepare for the worst, hope for the best

    Gt, that seems to be the recommendation.

    Was hope for some others with xp with these vehicles to chime in on what really works. Then again many rover owners don't use their vehicles offroad, this was a deciding factor when looking for something to ride around.
