My LR3 does that about twice a year. it usually fixes itself after 10-20 minutes.

What size tires do you have on your LR4? 255/55/18? -> K/O2 is on sale at Tirerack at $178 each + shipping
265/65/18

The Cooper Zeon LTZs are popular for the LR4. Much longer lasting than the factory tires.

I'm on my second set of Cooper LTZ's for my '06 LR3. The first set lasted close to 60k miles without issue. Best tires i've ever owned. Running 285/60/18 without mods and am super pleased.

Overall I'm happy with my lr4.
Only issue I really had was leaky sunroof.
Pain in the butt to get resolved.... brought it to dealer I think 5 times before it finally got resolved.... also told me none of it was covered under warranty becouse sunroof is a wear item?! What?
Thankfully after complaining to Land Rover USA they covered it for me.

Air compressed for suspension stopped working as well but was covered by warranty......

And just a few weeks ago some sort of transmission linkage broke and truck was slipping in and out of drive and neutral..... I was just out of warranty but thankfully was relatively cheap easy fix.

And yes control arm bushings are a pain....

I fitted poly bushes to the front lower front and rear about 8k ago, drove about 1k worth of dirt mountain roads and the rears still look good. Once you go poly you can change the rear with out pulling it all apart again.

When you go poly you will never go black.lol
