Question about 1991 Land Rover Great Divide

Bigger tire to my LR GD

I'm new to this forum and I just bought a 2005 LR3 and I want a more aggressive tire. Can someone help me and let me know if a bigger tire would work without modifing anything. I was looking at the Nito Terra Grapplers and the Cooper Discover STT's but the tire place that I go to says they wont work. Any suggestions..please

I can speak from experience on tires for LR3 and Sport. I used to be a big Nitto advocate but found Cooper Zeon LTZ all terrains. What I found was a softer compound which was quieter on the road, stickier on the loose and wet stuff [what really matters, otherwise why else choose a non-factory tread?]. They performed supremely on our Great Divide II trip where the terrain changed as quickly as the weather. I drive nothing other than them from an honest user point of view.
Here are some pics on the sport. Others will post for LR3 for you [I've asked them to chime in].

Land rover lr 3 key padwill not unlock doors battery is charged


There is a splice joint under the passenger side sill plate, under the second plate, about adjacent to the right front seat mounting. Split the harness open. Look for a blue tape with three thin green with white stripe wires. Open the tape. The joint is corroded and broken apart. This feeds the alarm rf receiver. Fix the splice and your remotes will work. - Kyle L.

I just bought a land rover LR3, and as I'm coming to a rolling stop the car really down shifts hard, as if someone is hitting me from behind. Also while I'm coming to a rolling stop, I push on the gas to...


A couple of possibilities - a MAF sensor, the TPS (throttle positioning sensor) and possibly a trans filter & fluid change. The TPS would explain the delay in accell/shifting issues. You might want to check Landrovers only forum and contact Disco Mike (resident expert who will even call you at home to diagnose. He's a retired Rover Service mgr.)

Please I need help with the back hatch of my 2005 landrover it won't open you can hear the lock to open but it does'nt open. How can I know what it is ? how can I open something to see ??thanks ,,,jazmin


If you had someone to help you, when you try to open it get them to pull on the door, if it opens you need to spray it good with WD-40. But you probably need to have it replaced.

Excessive tire wear, 29000 miles. Tires are cuping out and roaring. Tire dealer (Goodyear) said it was alignment. The truck always drove perfect.but I had it aligned anyway and noise is unbearable! 2008...


I am not sure I can help you much, I have bought, sold, used and abused tires all my life so I will try to help... First if you bought big aggressive tires that look cool, don't expect them not to make noise. Second, if you have ever run them underinflated and the cupping and adverse wear has started the only thing that may help reduce but not eliminate noise it is tire rotation.... Third aggressive tread is always noisy... And gets noisier with age. You have already aligned the truck, that is a step in the right direction. Keep tires properly inflated and rotate them often to square tread back up. Once cupping is minimised noise should go down. Just so you know I have learned about tire through a lot of personal experience. Don't by an aggressive tread if 98% of the time you or on the highway for the once or twice you may go off road... It's not worth it...

Spooky handling on rain grooves with new tires


If you paid for an aligment just ask the facility if there was any problem with the specs; your tape is not enough. Since the problem started with the new tires you have to look at them first; especially if they have a real aggressive tread design
