You are in the Land Rover
What is this discussion about?
Land Rover LR3, SUV
#2236 of 4548 LR3 SE Wheel Offset
May 26, 2005 (1:43 am)
The stud pattern spec for the Disco3/LR3 is 5 x 14mm x 1.5 twist studs, 5 x 120mm PCD (Pitch Circle Diameter) holes, 53mm offset, 163mm mounting face diameter, Spigot bore diameter 72.63 to 72.56mm for a vehicle spigot of 72.5 to 72.47mm.
However there is a large "X" factor on this rim. I understand "X" factor is a measure of the distance from the rim face to the inside of the spokes. What this means is 18" Range Rover 2004 rims are the same stud pattern as 18" D3/LR3 rims but the spokes on the RR rim catch on the brake callipers on a D3/LR3. I tried my RR rims on a V8 and my TDV6, even though the disc rotor size is smaller on the diesel, the front callipers protrude 15-17mm past the hub mounting face, on the rear its only around 5mm.
Whatever rim you come up with, be sure its weight rated to suit the car, so as to keep your insurance cover.
Thers is an Australian Manufacturer of rims (Mullins) that will make strong alloy rims to suit the D3/LR3 though the offset is close at 48mm and the weight rating is better than Land Rover spec. I think the wheelnuts are standard Toyota Landcruiser 14mm x 1.5 twist. Cost is around AU$400 from memory.
Hope this helps,

C/D TV schedule lists the LR3 on their show this weekend (SpikeTV). Oddly, the link from their website states LR3, but points to the RR Sport review from last month.
#2238 of 4548 Finally got my truck
May 26, 2005 (3:28 pm)
I ordered my fully loaded HSE7 Black/Black back in December and just got it today. I was really disappointed with the lack of one option that I ordered--the cooler box. My salesman told me that they stopped putting them in and only did it for a very short time. He thought I was still going to get it because we ordered it so long ago, but it wasn't there. Anybody else have this happen to them? I was really looking forward to having a fridge in my car...
Otherwise the truck is awesome. I love talking to my Nav guy. My salesman at Land Rover Amherst was great. He had the "Have love, will travel" song playing when I started it up.
#2239 of 4548 5 spoke 18" Factory Wheels
May 26, 2005 (3:41 pm)
Does anyone know where I can order the 5 spoke 18" wheels that come on the Discovery 3 SE in the United Kingdom?

Lots of those wheels on ebay all the time.
#2241 of 4548 No luck on E-Bay
May 26, 2005 (5:51 pm)
I tried looking on E-Bay. There are a lots of USA spec OEM wheels. No OEM spec for UK wheels. I was hoping to find a UK website that sells OEM LR3 wheels that will ship overseas and is cheaper than buying from the Land Rover dealership in the USA. I saw a website a few week ago that sold them, but never bookmarked it and now cannot find it again.

You could try Craigslist in London (or one of the other UK cities). There's a set of Range Rover wheels on there right now.
#2243 of 4548 ipod in the lr3
May 26, 2005 (7:07 pm)
i have a loaner from the dealer while my discovery's in the shop... what do i need to work my ipod in the lr3 and where's the aux?
May 28, 2005 (5:24 am)
The AUX in Land Rover's wisdom, is behind the center console facing the rear seats, there is a trap door to access it along with the accessory power socket.
#2245 of 4548 Paint eaten away passed the clear coat
May 29, 2005 (1:40 pm)
My LR3 was at the dealer for 3 weeks...I got it back with bird dropings on it. It took me a week to clean the car. Once I cleaned it I noticed the paint has been eaten away passed the clear coat. . Is this just my fault for not having it cleaned as soon as I got it back from the dealer?
Note: My wife was with me when we picked the car up. And wanted to tell that you need to get the dropping off the car. But It was Friday and we wanted to get home. So she did not.
