Steel Wheels

I want steel wheels similiar to what came on the NAS 110. I think they are 16 by 6.5. If I am not mistaken they are from 1 ton 130 defenders and the part number is ANR1534PM . My big question is if these wheels came tubeless or can be found tubeless. People say no but I keep seeing them on trucks. Look at this truck. It has them and is tubeless. http://britrover.com/listman/listings/l0003.html

Any help would be great.

I don't know if they make them "Tubeless" per se but people often install tubeless tires on the orig. tube wheels. My truck came that way when I purchased it and that is what is going on it when I put it back together.

My understanding (which may be flawed) is that the tubed wheels (i.e. ANR1534) are riveted. Thus, tubes are only required in the event that the rivets leak, thus causing a flat with tubeless tires. In practice, many people (myself included) go tubeless on the steelies with no ill effects.

So using those wheels shouldn't be a problem. Thanks

Now I just need to find a source for them that won't break the bank. Oh and what do you do if a rivit fails?

I haven't ever had a problem. You can find them. I just picked up a set of five for the 90 for cheap!

The tubed Rover wheels do not have the same safety bead as the tubeless Rover wheels. Unless your don't like the look the tubeless Wolf wheels are the same size as the 130/NAS110 rims. BTW... wolf rims come as tubed or tubeless so if you get them make sure you get the ones that you want.

I would love to have a set also, but those RN prices scared me off.

Me too! The Wolf aren't bad but they just don't look quite as cool as the NAS wheels IMO. I have never noticed rivets on mine...I'll have to take another look. If the rivet holds the two halves together I would think you could just weld a bead around the seam from the inside to make them air-tight again.

Check with SafariRover. He is on here all the time but I think this is his website. IIRC he was getting a steady stream of them and selling them for $120/ea.

Take a look at L W Vass here in the UK. they have heaps of those 130" rims.

Ok, shipping might be bad, but if you buy a bulk lot and all chip in, it might even out. and they're only 20 UKP (about $40) each!

I had a set of standard 5.5" 16" rover rims widened about 8 years ago by taking 8 old military 110/109 rims into a wheel shop and having them cut and weld them to make 4 6.5" 16" rims out of the 8. They are now the same offset and dimensions as the 130/NAS110 rims. It cost me $280 CAN at the time + the rims that I already had kicking around. They have been great rims that have lasted many miles of hard use with 235/85R16 and now 255/85R16 tires on them.
