    Simple question hopefully - will a set of Range Rover Evoque 18" alloys fit on an 05 TD4 HSE?
    I know it has 17's as standard and I know a bigger wheel needs a slimmer tyre, any advice is welcome.

    Very much doubt it. The Range Rover is a Ford Mondeo not a Rover/Honda. They'd probably fit an F2 but not an F1.

    Are they off an FL1 Nodge? My FL1 HSE has 17s as standard as I'm sure you know, all 5 need refurbishing, 2 of them being nasty, rather than waste a load of cash having them done I was looking on ebay and found a nice set of refurbed 18" evoke wheels in black, hence my original question. I'm not fussy if they are 17" or 18", I was trying to stay with land rover rather than horrendously expensive aftermarket ones!

    Yes. They're Freelander 1 Facelift Sport rims. They are the only factory 18" rims that fit the FL1. They are difficult to find though, and very expensive as a result.
    I know. I have a set of 5 HSE rims myself, which I use if I'm going off road, rather than mess up my lovely Sport rims.

    All later LR rims are the wrong PCD for the FL1, which uses the Honda 5 stud size.

    Some Jeep rims share the same PCD, but the spigot is completely wrong, leaving the wheels hung on the studs only, which is far from safe.

    Thank you for the advice. Need to save a few quid and then start trawling ebay!
