Our Story

THE PASSION

Here at TuffAnt we love our Disco, we love to get outdoors and amongst it.  But sadly, like most owners have found, a distinct lack of suitable 19" tires have left us wanting more.  A wheel and tire combination to match the amazing technical ability of the Disco in all the tough off road conditions we care to throw at it.  From firsthand experience, we have felt the short comings of the tire choices when the going gets tough and we ask the most from our tires.

LIMITED CHOICE

The tire choices in 18” are vastly improved but if you wanted to go to an 18" wheel you were left with very few legal options, particularly in Australia. The existing options are expensive and often hard to get. You could go to 20" but again, little choice is readily available for a high-quality LT rated tire to tackle those big challenges.

THE SOLUTION


​Whilst alloys may look the part, they have their drawbacks.  Apart from the initial expense, they are soft by nature, scratch, gouge and damage all too easily, especially on any serious off road trails.  Additionally, the alloys available are rated generally at less than 1000kg and that inhibits their use on off road caravans and camper trailers.  That in turn means carrying 2 different spare wheels when towing.  Having experienced this, we thought there had to be a better way.  The solution was a properly engineered and legal 18" steel rim that would suit late model Discovery 4’s/LR4’s that would not break the bank or require any vehicle modifications.  Of course the wheels also fit the LR3; as well as some Range Rover Sport Models (See Fitment page). A Discovery 5 model (Select years and engines) arrived in 2019 as the TuffAnt MKII's.  These wheels offer the LR3/4 & L320 communities a second option in offset at ET27; as well as fitting some Discovery 5s.
