Method Used for Tyre Upsize Calculation

There is not much scope to increase the Total Diameter of the tyre that comes originally fitted in your car.

    Tyre Dimension Measurement
    Total Diameter = Wheel/Rim Diameter + Sidewall

This total diameter can only be increased by 3%, for a safe upsize of tyre. So, we calculate the total diameter for each tyre size and then compare this with the total diameter of the size that is originally fitted in your car.
If the difference lies within this range of 3 %, then only we would recommend that tyre.

what are recommended tyre for Land Rover Freelander 2

Hi Sanjeev,

Let me try to answer your by addressing different scenarios.

1. For Spirited driving- If you are someone who loves to drive this vehicle in a spirited or enthisiastic way, then I would suggest you to go for Michelin Latitude Sport 3 tyre. It would offer superb high speed control and improved steering precision. You can count on this tyre to keep your Freelander very stable on corners even at high speeds.

2. For extensive highway drives- If you undertake extensive highway drives then you require tyres that offer a very long tread life without comprising on safety and comfort. In such a scenario, I'd say you choose out of Michelin Latitude tour HP or Pirelli Scorpion Verde. Both these tyres offer superb wet and dry grip, along with good comfort and a quiet ride quality. Michelin Latitude, although, would offer longer tread life.

3. For mild off-roading or for rough roads- If you drive over rough roads or often take your car for off-roading excursions then go for Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015. It is a very durable tyre and takes over rough roads with great ease. It also offers a long tread life.

Hope this would be of some help.

Regards,

Ramit

Hi Bhushan,

Pirelli, Bridgestone, Continental, Michelin...these are all top brands in their segment and make great tyres. However, you need to figure out what would suit your needs the best.

So, I would really appreciate if you could tell me a bit about your driving style (spirited or moderate), and  priorities that you are looking for in a tyre ( whether it is tyre life or comfort or high-speed handling etc.) This way I can be of a better help to you.  

Sorry for not outrightly providing you with a tyre option, but I don't want to suggest you something that won't fit your needs. Hope you'd understand. Waiting to hear from you.

Regards,

Ramit
