Sports mode

Post by Flagflyer » Mon Jun 04, 2018 4:17 pm

No joy so far in the owner’s handbook....
My Disco has the pneumatic suspension but not the dynamic mode.
I could swear that the suspension on my car is firmer with the gearbox in sports mode than in drive. Am I imagining things??

I thought that too but I think it’s all imagined ;)

Still not convinced. Sleeping Policemen feel harder in Sport than in Drive.
Anyway, seriously considering getting the 22” wheels to replace the 20s on my Beast.
Advice please....
Positives:
Gonna look EVEN better. (No doubt)
Negatives:
Less profile so a bit firmer ride.
Questions:
Road noise maybe? 285 instead of 255. Can that make a lot of difference?
Body roll? I assumed there would be a reduction in roll due to less deformation of the tire but might this actually mean more, as the suspension compensated for less give in the tires?
Thanks for any educated thoughts on this.

Just check that the larger wheels will fit the spare wheel holder.

JLR might not tell you !

The overall size will be the same unless talking about width.
