Do I need to tell my insurer about fitting winter tyres and wheels?

I have bought a Land Rover Freelander with 18-inch wheels and summer tyres. I want to buy a set of 17-inch wheels with winter tyres. Will I need to contact my insurance about the change of wheels and tyres?

As long as the wheels are from Land Rover and not aftermarket, you would not need to contact them. If they are non OE you would.
