Fwiw Cooper Maxx tires are very different from their other at tires. They are a hybrid tire on a full mud terrain carcass. They seem a step more rugged and higher void than ko2s.
"rugged"? Unlikely in that my take is that durability or ruggedness is it's sidewall and carcass strength and resilience to sharp objects. BFG pretty much leads the industry in that aspect. Now if what you mean is the tread design and how aggressive it is, yeah I can see that for sure. It also reminds me of the Nitto Terra Grappler from several years ago. Toyo Open Country had similar as well.Fwiw Cooper Maxx tires are very different from their other at tires. They are a hybrid tire on a full mud terrain carcass.

Since your post in June, How have those KO2 275/55/R20's worked out for you. Are you still stock in terms of frame horns, inner fender liners, etc?I just go my Discovery 4 SDV6 2 days ago and thank you for this Thread..., I took the chance and ordered n fit the 275/55R20 on my 20" OEM Tyres. So far so good..., I have not really try lock to lock turn or full compression.
Managed to get the local Tyre retailer to match the online price but their price are fitted price.... couldn't be happier, they charged AU$430 each balanced and fitted.

Thanks for the update. I'm about to pull the trigger on the same size, only Cooper Discoverer AT3 XLT. Stock LR4 20" wheels. I can come up some with the Gap tool if I need to.I just wanted to come here and post, as this thread was one that I used to make my final size decision. I just mounted Yokohama Geolandar g015 275 55 20s on 20x8.5 et58 Range Rover Supercharged wheels and they fit fine, with no rubbing. No spacers, no rods, truck is completely stock. Drives and feels great with these new shoes. Hopefully this helps someone else out in their quest for bigger wheels on this truck. Pics below.

It’s going to be snug even deflated from my experience. A 265/65/18 KO2 (1/4” smaller on paper) had to be fully deflated, valve core removed, heat shield removed, and greased up with Dawn dish soap. I do have an aftermarket hitch that overhangs the rear crossmember slightly, so it might be easier without it. I was worried about stripping out the gears in the tire winch, I heard a couple pops, but am hoping it has some sort of torque limiting ratchet system.Thanks for the update.

My slightly bigger concern is the spare. Anyone running the same size 275/55/20 able to fit the full size spare underneath? Willing to deflate it some, but ideally would like to fit without. Run hitch on occasion for light trailer or bike rack, so hopefully able to get the hitch receiver in there without any big issues.
If anyone else running the same tire, I'd love to hear about it.
