There is a reason I turn down free sets of the D1 spares. Certainly wouldn't turn down the wolfs they just look right on a Defender.

And the Wolfs have a much stronger lip. Plus the offset is kicked out a bit so may help a little where turning radius is concerned.

I like the look of the Disco 1 steel spares but the Wolfs look a bunch better. Wish there was a company that could add an inch width to them.

Cal - what size and brand tire are you looking to run? Unless you are going to a 315 width I say keep the Wolfs.

Another food for thought on tires - match them to the truck config. NAS V8's and PS can spin and turn 35's. 2.5NA diesels with manual steering will have a better time with a 235 or 255.

I prefer wolfs as well. Although, I'll point out that Yeastie had Disco spares, and it didn't look bad.

I ran 255/85/16 km2s which come in at around 33.3"x 10.5. I had a 2" OME lift and they worked beautifully. You will have no issues....
