    Discovery 4 Re: 19” to 18” rims on LR4 HSE

    My 2nd spare is on a D3 18" rim.

    It only fits on the back wheels, so I may have to swap wheels if my second flat is on one of the front wheels.

    Discovery 4 Re: 19” to 18” rims on LR4 HSE

    Hmm, if you were a bit closer you could bring it over for a test fit.

    I suspect that your vehicle has the same calipers as my D4, it is the V8 that has the larger brakes.

    Yeah, my D4 has also been extremely reliable.

    I jumped from a D1 (owned it for 21 years) to a D4, the D1 was reliable but it was a 3.9 V8i, so the fuel cost was killing me. Also, the D4 is much...
