WILL 2005 DISCO 3 SE 18" WHEELS FIT 2005 HSE for off roading

Hello.

I tried to find steel wheels for a disco 3 hse 2005.the only wheels i can find are compomotive wheels which are way out of my budget. don't get me wrong id love a set. So then i thought i could but some 2005 se alloys and get them painted grey or black and then fit some nice big mud tyres.

Can i have your thoughts please?

Will disco 3 2005 se alloys ( see pic) replace my 19" hse alloys? i am worried there might be a difference in calliper size.

Yes. Straight fit, no fiddling, fettling or worrying. Thumbs Up

Thanks DSL,

Why is it so difficult to get 17" or 18" steel wheels for a disco 3?

Because with 2nd hand alloys cheap as chips there’s no market for them so no one makes them. Thumbs Up

As Del says - you will get a set of 18 or 17 inch alloys for £150 or less.

I've also bought brand new take off 19 inch for £650. Second hand wheel/tyre seems always to be a buyers market.

Thumbs Up

I wouldn't bother with Compomotives on a D3. The only reason I've got a set is because they'll fit on a 3.O D4 and LR 18" rims don't.

Even with a V8 brake upgrade on a D3, LR 18" rims still fit.

Wales 

The off road tyres for 18's are quite limited you are better off with 17's or 19's as there are more make's of tyres available Thumbs Up

You can fit 265/60/18 tyres on them, which gives you access to some serious off road rubber, from the likes of Cooper and BFG. Although I get everywhere on Pirelli ATR's. I just slide around a bit more in heavy mud Smile

V8 brakes are bigger & better. Which is strange as it’s limited to the same top speed as TDV6s.
