Chevy's 24-Inch Leap vs. Range Rover's 23-Inch Cap: The Wheel Size Debate

Alright, get this: as cars get bigger (and let's be real, heavier), you'd think the wheels would follow suit. Chevy's gone wild with their giant electric Silverado, slapping on the first factory 24-inch wheels. It seems like everyone's jumping on the big-wheel train these days.

Everyone except Range Rover, apparently. They're acting like 23 inches is some kind of limit. Like, seriously? Their engineers are straight-up saying they won't go any bigger. Which is kinda weird for a brand that's all about luxury and going the extra mile, especially with their electric Range Rover coming up.

Okay, fair point: they technically offer 23-inch carbon fiber wheels on their Range Rover Sport SV. Apparently, those are a huge hit with buyers.

And hey, carbon fiber wheels do shave off some serious weight, which is a good thing considering these SUVs weigh as much as a small house. But let's be real, they're also a bit controversial – imagine hitting a pothole with those gigantic, pricey carbon hoops!

So, if you absolutely have to have a Range Rover Sport SV (and who wouldn't, it's gorgeous) be ready to shell out even more cash if you want those fancy carbon fiber wheels. They'll set you back a cool $8,700 on top of the already eye-watering base price.

What do you think? Is Range Rover being a bit too cautious, or is 23 inches really the sensible limit?
