off road tyres

Postby Phil1964 » Thu 19 Oct 2017 5:44 pm

Is there anyone out there who can advise please. I have a D4 currently shod with 255 55 19 road tyres. During the winter I will be using it on a shooting estate and will encounter challenging situations that will be best tackled with a chunky off road tyre. I would like a second set of wheels for this purpose. I was hoping to buy an early set of 16/17 inch wheels with a 65/70 profile. My research is telling me that these will not fit. Can anyone tell me the best way to kit my motor out with a set of tyres that won't make it or me look a [leaking sunroof] when the going gets tough.
My brain is in melt down with size/profile and diameter numbers.
Cheers Phil

Just put a set of General Grabber AT or similar on the wheels you have now, know of a lot of D3 and D4 running AT tyres year round, or get a set of Grabber or whatever take your road tyres off stick the AT on whenever and refit the road tyres March sort of time. Grabber AT is H rated (130mph) the more aggressive looking X3 Grabber is Q rated (99mph).

If your D4 has the large brake calipers then 17 or even 18 inch rims are very likely not to fit, didn't think there ever did a D3 let alone a D4 on anything smaller than 17 inch rims.
