What Are the Best Tires for my Land Rover Range Rover Sport?

Tuesday, November 20, 2012 by Zig Ziegler

The Range Rover Sport model is a perfect blend of off-road prowess and high performance capability. It offers one of the most sophisticated all-wheel drive systems and can come equipped with a supercharged V8 for unbelievable performance on paved roads. However, there are not many choices in the 275/40R20 size the vehicle needs. As limited as the choices are in this size, there are three standouts when it comes to complementing the high horsepower Range Rover Sport.

 Continental Extreme Contact DWS

 Yokohama Parada Spec-X

 Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza

If you're a spirited driver looking for a tire that'll provide great steering response and cornering feel while retaining all-season use, the Continental ExtremeContact DWS and Yokohama Parada Spec-X will be perfect choices. Both tires are high speed rated all-season tires while the Continental boosts a very high rating for snow and ice traction. Directional tread pattern on the Yokohama gives this tire very high marks in wet weather and hydroplaning resistance.  

If ride comfort and low road noise are your biggest concerns, the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza is definitely one of the quietest and smoothest tires offered for the Range Rover Sport. The Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza is also very a capable in light snow and wet weather situations.

Take a look at what customers are saying about their experiences with these three tires:

"Much better than the Original Equipment - quieter and softer ride. At the same time, they give a very positive steering feedback and less susceptible from grooves in the road. Very pleased." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2009 Land Rover Range Rover Sport (Continental ExtremeContact DWS)

"Improvement over the Original Equipment. Rides better, handles better, looks better and definite increase in traction and braking. Aggressive tread pattern with extra weight capacity and all-season traction makes for a great package." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2006 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Supercharged (Yokohama Parada Spec-X)

"These tires have performed well and the tread still has many miles left on them. With 25,000 miles on them, I still have excellent snow and ice traction and stability. I have no complaints about this tire, especially at the price point." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2010 Land Rover Range Rover Sport HSE (Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza)

I have a 2011 Range Rover Sport. I have 26,000 miles and I need new tires ! They are Michelin Latitude 275/40r20. MUD and Snow. Can you recommend a better tire that's Mud and Snow that will last longer , but still give me a great ride !

The 3 tires I have recommended in this blog come in your size, are M+S (mud and snow rated) and would be my top picks. The quietest smoothest ride would probably be the Bridgestone in my opinion:

i am wondering if i can put 275/40R20 106Y tires on my 2004 range rover HSE.
Please advise

I would assume not because it's over 1.5" shorter than the OEM tires. However, there are no alternative sizes The Tire Rack recommends for this particular vehicle.

I need a heavy duty truck tire for my rrsport hse, with 21" rims for off road. Are they available?
Friday, April 11, 2014 by Zig:
To be more specific which 21" size tire were you looking for? But to be honest I highly doubt there will be any off-road tires on a 21" wheel since these are such low profile tires. Usually 21" wheels are not used for off-road.

What is the best size wheel and make and model of tire for an off road look for a 2013 RR Sport. More for look then performance.

Mark, all of our wheels can be seen utilizing the search by vehicle tool on our website. When it comes to wheel fitment, this is a matter of personal preference and we offer many different finish types. Also remember that while larger wheels may have a greater asthetic appeal, ride comfort will decrease when plus sizing wheels.

Andrew, Take a look at the Continental ExtremeContact DWS. It's a good performing all-season with a fair price-point. http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Continental&tireModel=ExtremeContact+DWS&affiliate=BF7

I have a set of 19" factory wheels that I want to use for winter tires on my 2015 Range Rover Sport HSE. Comes with 275/40/20 Pirellis. What is best WINTER tire for the 19" wheels?
Monday, January 5, 2015 by Tire Rack Team:
Jay, Please give us a call so that we can discuss your options. We do sell tires for the Range Rover Sport HSE, however we do not show that it comes with a 275/40R20 as standard. The 2015 Range Rover Sport HSE should come with 255/55R20's from the factory and use a 235/65R19 as the most appropriate downsize. -- marshall@tirerack.com
