When modifying your Land Rover Discovery with aftermarket wheels and tires, you may find that you need to install wheel spacers to get the right fitment. But what size Discovery wheel spacers are best and safe to use? In this post, we’ll go over spacer options for the Discovery and make some recommendations.

Wheel spacers act as adapters that push the wheels further out from the hub for better clearance and stance. However, you have to use spacers properly to avoid safety issues. That’s why choosing quality branded spacers in tested sizes is important.

Types of Discovery Wheel Spacers

Discovery owners generally have two main spacer options: hub-centric spacers that center on the hub bore, and lug-centric spacers that center on the wheel lugs. Hub-centric spacers tend to be preferable and safer since they hub-bore fit ensures proper wheel alignment. High-quality hub-centric spacers from brands like BONOSS are common choices.

Lug-centric spacers can work but may be more prone to vibration issues if not properly centered.

Recommended Discovery Spacer Sizes

For the Discovery 1 and 2, a 20-25mm spacer up front and 25-30mm rear spacer is common for fitting larger diameter tires without rubbing issues. This adds just enough width to clear 33-35 inch tires depending on lift and backspacing.

For the Discovery 3, 4 and 5, a 20-25mm spacer all around is generally ideal for moderate lifts up to 3 inches.
