    Default Now the Astra is sleeping............

    I decided to have a bit of a play with the Land Rover. I have had the car for nearly 5 1/2 years and had 18's for the first 18 months.

    Then in October 2008, I fitted genuine 19's and after just over 4 years good service, I felt a change was in order.

    So I bought brand new set of Range Rover Evoque Dynamic 20" alloys and Michelin 245 45 20 Tyres which is standard size for Evoque and matches Freelander 2 perfecty.

    The car is 100% no harder than driving on the 19's which surprised me, maybe it is the Michelin Tyres. But it drives really well.

    Anyway here are a few pics.



    Had to start with a clean car of course!




    The finished article!














    Let me know what you think. but I reckon they work well.



    Not bad for a 6 year old car!
