I've got a full year before next MoT so should be able to swap stuff around and either get TPMS working or disabled before then.

Excellent - assume if it is turned off it won't be an MoT issue? New IID is on the shopping list...

Bloody vultures Wink Going to try them this weekend to see if they do rub or not - ronp has mentioned that they don't always rub so need to prove either way. If they do, I will indeed be looking to sell some nice gloss black alloys with almost new Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Seasons, in 285/50 R20 116V XL, M+S spec.
 Cheers,

Gareth

And now a question - does anyone else find the electric steering column doesn’t go high enough? With the seat/column set for me, I can’t see half of the dials or message centre as the top of the wheel is in the way. Wasn’t a problem in the old D3 with manual column.

At a whisker under 6ft7” that’s a problem I have with both the D3 and D4, the later slightly more so.

Our old D3 was fine, however it was a manual column. I'm "only" 6'2" and the D4 is useless for me.

It looks like there is about an extra inch of space between the column and instrument binacle where the old manual columns would go up, and yet the electric ones don't.

Another quality design improvement... Confused

I think you need to rethink this as TPMS became mandatory on all vehicles sold after 1st November 2014

And
As of January 1, 2015, all vehicles first used after January 1, 2012, and equipped with a TPMS by the manufacturer must have a functioning system to pass its MOT.

Thanks UNG - didn't know that and it does indeed mean I need to rethink.

No need to change the wheels if you do get rubbing, just change the tyres to 275/45/20s.
You'll get no rubbing with these (I'm currently running GG AT3s in 275/45/20)

I ran 265/50/20 tires for years on 45eta offset wheels. I changed to 285/50/20 tires and the alteration e in speed with larger diameter kept throwing faults so I went back to 265/50/20. RonP is the wheel / tire expert and I’m sure he’d agree that a 45 eta or slightly lower offset wheel provides the perfect stance Thumbs Up

Well, I put the 285/50/20 wheel/tyre combo on at the weekend and can see it is REALLY tight. However, I'm not convinced there is any real rubbing. I suspect if I were at full lock in access mode it'd occur, however I never do that. When I testing on the path, it just about removed the top layer of dirt from the front of the chassis rail where it protrudes into the wheel arch. I was also surprised to notice there appears to be less clearance under the rear wheel-arches too, as there seems to be a bulge in the liner at the front of the arch. Again, not an apparent problem in normal of off-road height but a minor issue in access height.

I'm going to run it for a week or two and then check to see, however there have been zero noises or feelings of rubbing. I'd prefer to keep this size tyre rather than go down in profile, as the ride is less harsh (although it's all relative.)

If/when the weather allows, I'll get some photo's to share.
 Cheers,

Gareth
