It took me a while to decide what to get and I searched the internet to find photos of a DS with KO2 (or any in 18" all-terrain) but couldn't find any. Although I loved the look of the 20" I wanted to be able to explore more terrain and hesitated going anywhere due to the 20" low profile and poor tire choice for any off-road use.

My main goal was to ensure it looked 'stock' and the tires fit the look of the vehicle. After doing a ton of research on wheels and tires I settled on a Replica Wheel that mimicked the 22" RRS wheels but fit on a DS with no hub rings along AND close to the original offset. The wheels are 18x8 with a 63.4MM bore and 45mm offset.

My tires choice had to work 365 days at year and both a combination of some light off-road, hwy and important that it was good in snow. After a ton of research and friends having these tires on the Tacoma I chose the BFGoodrich All-Terrain KO2 in 255/55/18. These tires are about 1.3" overall larger diameter then the stock 245/45/20. They are a true 29" diameter and I believe it is more accurate to the stock 235/60/18 that our vehicle was designed around.

I am pleased with the setup and result and the bonus is that the Replica rims fit the stock center caps to give it that stock look.

Nice setup. What is the model/brand of your replicas

I'm expecting MPG loss for sure. Will let you know but I've already noticed about an average of 0.5L / 100K loss in normal city driving from the trip computer.

Did you purchase the "installation kit" together wi the wheels?:|
Installation kit? Not sure what you are referring to? I used my stock OEM LR center caps and used the OEM lugs. The center bore is exact for our vehicles so no centering rings required.

Additional photos of the differences between stock 20" setup and the new 18" off-terrain.
You are the only person online that has the solution for discovery sport A/T tyres... thanks for the share.
But please tell me, do you have any video or Photos off road and please share how are the tyres. I know you’ve had then long enough to give us some of you experience.
