    hi all
    just a quick question i have a 54 plate freelander sport. i have seen one with a genuine spare wheel cover the one with the land rover badge in the middle and the 3 plastic strips a bit like the bodykit they do. i believe they do them in 16 or 17 inch but my sport has 18 wheels yet seen one with this cover. so will they fit if you stretch over the tyres:confused:and which one

    Hi,

    I am puzzled - nothing new there - but I would have been saying the opposite of what storm99 has said.

    The different diameters of wheel make little or no difference to the overall diameter of the tyre, as fitted by LandRover to the various models as OE.

    I have on my FL right now a genuine LR cover from a 215/65 16 wheel/tyre combo that I no longer own, and it fits a treat on my bigger than standard 235/55 17 tyre.

    An 18" wheel will have an even lower profile tyre but it will still have as near as dammit the same overall diameter.

    The differences in tread width should make no difference if you have the stretchy cord type of cover edging.

    Or am I speaking cr*p because the 'body-kit' style of wheel cover is totally different?

    Come back storm and explain, please.

    Singvogel. :confused:

    The difference between 15", 16", 17" + 18" wheels is approx 40mm over the whole circumference of the wheel and tyre combo, or approx 2%. Not enough to worry about IMO ;)
