That depends...stock is 16, plenty of 15's available and Walker Evans makes a 17. With special spacers reducing the bolt pattern I have seen stock LR 18 Hurricanes on a 90.

What are you looking to do?

Depends on how much modification you are willing to do. With the stock springs and not cutting fenders your tire size limit is around 255/85R16. If you find larger rims with tires which do not exceed the dia of the above tire you can go larger. The largest I have seen was an 18" rim. This was postet on a German forum and was done with lots of mods on the suspension...

I was on the Range Rover forum for a while. Lots of gangsta-wannabe's putting 22" rims (or more) on those.

Anything over 16" on a D90 might get you shot. LOL

Thanks guys. 18's are nice, I was thinking of going a little bigger. I dont drive off road much. I just like the Defenders style.

Your question seems a bit outlandish, especially for a first post, especially when compared to some of the equally outlandish questions asked by a "new" bogus member on the same day.

To add to that, your avatar is some douchey Burberry design, so I think we're all a bit skeptical of your genuineness.

Well why didn't you say so?!! That makes two of us!

Here's mine from a recent photo shoot I did with Auto Custom. I just didn't want two of us to have similar trucks, so hence the hate'n.

Says the one reppin' Vineyard Vines head to toe :D

To the OP - might be able to get on 30s but will need 5" RTE springs.

I actually think it would be funnny as shit to see a Defender on 30s running some slickrock trail where you wouldn't need a MT for traction.

If you want to turn a classic automobile with genuine style into a ghetto-cruiser...
