Have you thought about modernising your Discovery 1 with new wheels? Due to the old style stud pattern the choice of alloys is very limited, but by fitting adapters the choice of wheels opens up vastly, including ones for Discovery2, 3, 4 and Ranger Rover Sport, amongst others.

Here we fit alloy wheels from a Discovery3, which shows fitting the adapters, with some tips for getting some old wheel spacers off and other stuff.

Fitting modern wheels, using wheel adapters, dramatically improves the cornering grip and handling. I have stiffer anti roll bars front and back, poly roll bar bushes, stiffer springs and adjustable koni shocks on the front and now with these 19″ wheels and modern tyres, oh boy does it hold on and grip around the corners!

The tyres are 255/50r19. I have heard even lower profile tyres are not good, so wouldn’t go any lower than these 50 profiles.

    Cool video. It was very informative. For some reason I think the 16 inch rims or should I
    say the original tire and wheels looked much better. Its like you took away a little character
    from your Disco 1. You did a fine job on making this video.

    I fitted these myself on my D1 last year and when I fitting the adapter hub I used some thread lock for the 27mm nuts to the axles which works better for peace of mind, and also had the rear flange bolt heads turned shorter by 2mm in a lathe far better than grinding away
