For better traction, the AMG GLC has larger standard tires than the Range Rover (F:255/45R20 & R:285/40R20 vs. 235/65R19).

The AMG GLC 43’s standard 255/45R20 front and 285/40R20 rear tires provide better handling because they have a lower 45 series front and 40 series rear profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the Range Rover’s standard 65 series tires. The AMG GLC’s optional 295/35R21 rear tires have a lower 35 series profile than the Range Rover’s optional 40 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the AMG GLC has standard 20-inch wheels. Smaller 19-inch wheels are standard on the Range Rover.

Changing a flat tire near traffic can be dangerous and inconvenient. The run-flat tires available on the AMG GLC can be driven up to 50 miles without any air pressure, allowing you to drive to a service station for a repair. The Range Rover doesn’t offer run-flat tires.
