Tire dimensions

  • 255/70 R18 *
  • 275/65 R18 e.g. Cooper Discoverer STT Pro *

22 inch

  • 275/45 R22 *


In addition to the tire dimension and the rim size, you must also always consider whether the tire width may actually be driven on the rim. Otherwise it is not only illegal but also possibly dangerous.

* This dimension can normally also be registered with all track plates listed below. If you have any questions, just contact us.

 

Track widening

For Defender, there are wheel spacers with part certificates that simply give Defender a cooler look.


These are available in the widths: 15 / 18 / 21 / 25 / 27 and 30mm
(per side, so the track is doubled in width)

 

Tire width / required rim width (min.)
195 – 235 / 7,5″
215 – 245 / 8″
225 – 255 / 8,5″
225 – 255 / 9″
245 – 275 / 9,5″
255 – 285 / 10″
Speed index:

Recommendation: Do not choose tires with a slower speed index than S, even for winter tires. In some countries (e.g. Italy) the speed index must match the registered maximum speed of the car.
