Hi, I have 20” rims under my Velar and would like to have 21" rims but I don't have the "adaptive dynamics" option. Does anyone know if an upgrade is possible without the "adaptive dynamics" option?

Adaptive Dynamics are standard across all Velar's with coil or air suspension. Configurable Dynamics are an option or standard on higher spec trim levels.
The Adaptive Dynamics system delivers both precise dynamics and a
supple, luxurious ride by monitoring wheel position and body movements.
To do this, the system constantly analyses acceleration, steering, throttle
and brake pedal activity. The electronically controlled dampers adjust
to optimise the suspension settings and provide the optimum balance
between comfort, refinement and agility at all times.

To enhance either refinement and comfort or the vehicle’s performance,
the optional Configurable Dynamics function allows you to configure
Range Rover Velar’s throttle mapping, gearbox shift points, steering
settings and suspension to suit your driving needs.

I am on 21 inch on air and the ride is comfy.

21" on air, no issues, there is nothing harsh. 22", same car, gets mich harder, and you'd have to keep them at higher pressure to avoid damage. Also it gets jumpy even in comfort mode. IMO 21-inch is the sweet spot if you want looks and performance, plus there are sime tyres with wheel protector.

I have not driven on 20", common sense says it would be much softer, but you also get more sidewall play while cornering, as the tyre wall is so much higher. They are also narrower (255mm vs 265 for the 21 and 22"), even if only 5mm a side. Looks-wise - I just don't kike how it looks on 20". Too ordinary, and side to side it's like different cars. Not to mention the wheel choice JLR offers for 20" is not particularly attractive.

Ofc, the 22" look awesome, but I'd not try even a bumpy road, much less anyyhing remotely offroad-ish with them.
