The Discovery 17 wheels – EVO 17″ are produced to meet a specific need: to have one set of 17″ wheels after market on Discovery 3 and Range Rover Sport <2008. We know that reducing the diameter of the rim, we increase the shoulder of the same total diameter tire.
You know that in off-road is essential to deflate the tires for increased grip and traction. Then shoulder higher allows greater possibility of deflation of the tires, which will produce an increase in footprint on the ground and consequently an increase in the vehicle traction.
In the pictures, you see the mounted Discovery 17 wheels on Discovery 3 with Cooper Discoverer STT tires in size 33 x 12.5 R17., but can be mounted tires of different sizes. We recommend the Cooper Discoverer STT or BF Goodrich Mud Terrain for those who want traction on muddy terrain and Cooper Discoverer ST Maxx or Bf Goodrich All Terrain that does a lot for street use but want to maintain a good grip in off-road.
Given the important weight of the car, these Discovery 17 wheels are tested in the laboratory up to 1,300 kg, this means higher minimum specification Land Rover.
In size 8 × 17″ can be fitted with off-road tires footprint. We are working to get the TUV approval on the full rim + tire system.
Available in three colors: black, anthracite, white!!
