The 17 “- 17” EVO wheels are specially designed for use on Discovery 3 and Range Rover Sport vehicles up to model year 2009 with tires with maximum profile height. By reducing the rim diameter, we were able to use taller tires.
Off-road, it is essential to be able to deflate the tires to increase traction. By increasing the height of the tire profile, it is possible to maximize the effect of the tires on the ground, obtaining a larger contact patch and, consequently, increasing the cross-country ability.
17 “EVO wheels are shown fitted to Discovery 3 with Cooper Discoverer STT 33 x 12.5 R17 tires, but other sizes may be used. We recommend Cooper Discoverer STT or BF Goodrich Mud Terrain tires for those who need maximum float and Cooper Discoverer ST Maxx or Bf Goodrich All Terrain is for those who are primarily on the road but want to maintain good off-road grip.
Considering the large weight of the car, these wheels have been laboratory tested with a load of up to 1300 kg, which exceeds the minimum requirements of Land Rover specifications.
The 8×17 “size allows for a variety of off-road tires. The wheels are currently undergoing voluntary certification by the TUV in Germany.
Available in the following colors: black, anthracite, white.
