Re: How do I get "Trail Rated"?

If you order the Off-Road Adventure II package you get the "Trail Rated" badge, and the 18" rims have Michelin Latitude Tour tires on them. Michelin doesn't rate those tires as off-road, and it's my understanding that off-road use voids their warranty. So, "Trail Rated" becomes a rather subjective idea. As previously stated, buy the badge, and equip the vehicle for your intended use.

Greetings,

I agree with you.

SPINXT, it also depends on the trail you take and since you have the QL and sele-terrain, you have a lot of options, at least you have the 4-Lo and QTII. If it is very muddy, you want mud terrain tires or great set of all-terrain if it not that bad. The basic key is to make sure the transfer case is protected and you can always add the additional plates later if need and the tow hooks.

For 20" inch tires, a lot of the Range Rover folks love the Copper Zeon LTZ's. Their are plenty of reviews for those tires here.

Best for now.
