Wheel/Rim Sizing

Post by Stuart G » Thu Sep 07, 2017 12:58 pm

Hi All,

I've read some interesting comments on the new Velar but noted there is no topic on wheel/rim size hence the topic and for me wheels make a huge difference in appearance. I've ordered a Yulong White R Dynamic SE D300 and come standard with the 20 inch dark grey wheels. Not sure if this compliments the vehicle. I'm seriously considering upgrading to the 22 inch or even 21 inch wheels. Has anyone test driven all three sizes and what was your experience.

Thank you.

I haven't driven all three. But I'm very happy with my 21's on my coils.

Have driven all 3 and the 20's on air are the least noisy and the most comfortable. They will also be the best off road tyre if you don't want to damage your rims.

Just picked up mine with 20's and can confirm what Brooke is saying. It is also easier to find good aftermarket tires which are better than oem like continental dws 06

Thank you for the responses.

Does anyone know the tire sizes (width and aspect ratio) for the 20, 21 and 22 inch rims.

Thank you for the responses. Another wheel question to assist in my final spec.please. I gather the 22" on air is a comfortable ride but not ideal should you venture off road. Please correct me if I have assumed incorrectly. However how noisy are the 22 inch wheels. Brooke has mentioned the 20" is less noisy. Would someone kindly share their experience with the 22" noise levels and can you have a normal conversation without having to raise you voice?.

Thank you

I've looked into this a lot. Finally ordered my Velar sadly have to wait until 12/10! What I have been told, and what I experienced, is that 21" and 22" wheels lead to poorer ride experience than 20". Land Rover mechanic told me it's common knowledge on these cars that 20" is sweet spot. Big enough to look good, not too big to truly impact ride quality or performance. Personally, I have noticed a HUGE difference between even the 20" and 21", and I've taken many rides to try to figure it out. I have a bad back, so am particularly sensitive to harsher rides.

Note, the harshness isn't noticeable unless you hit a pothole, go into a parking lot where there are lots of bumps, offroading, etc. On a normal street w few bumps, all the wheels will ride great.
