You won't find boosts for $50 without quite a bit of work/luck and even then you'd likely need to have them shipped. Just keep in mind that most yards don't know the difference between deep dish, freestyles, and boosts, so even then you may end up with the wrong wheel if you don't get photo confirmation from them first.

Been there, done that.

the adapters change the bolt pattern and also act as spacers, understood. Combine the adapters with 18 or 20 inch wheels with lower profile tires and the ride is awful.

The guy originally said he wanted 18 inch wheels and was asking about range rover wheels.

Very helpful information especially Josh's collection of photos.

The Wolf's in black look good but we can't have Ronnie throwing a fit with matching cars in the northeast.

The 18" Boost look nice but probably not on this stock car so I'm back to 16". Cheaper option since I can probably use the existing tires. (Tires was just replaced a few K miles ago.)

Looking for Boost 16" or another set of ANR1534 in Black.

Pedro is selling some freestyles dirt cheap, much cheaper than $50 a wheel.

Black RRC 5 spokes can be found for cheap in most cases. They are 16" and you would need spacers.

Never realized they were the same as the Great Divide wheels. They were thrown in with the deal with the Hunter when I bought it. Had them sitting around for years and I liked the look of them better than the 3 spokes.

They look pretty good on the 110.

I really like the Terrafirma TF100. I hardly see them in the registry. Is there a reason they don't seem to be popular on US Defenders?

The registry on d-90.com is just a fraction of Defender owners in the USA. So assuming that they are not popular with US Defenders is not really a good way to look at it. Also, freestyles are OEM and work well, so there's very little demand for anything to replace them.

At $258 a wheel before shipping, you are out of the price range that most on this board would spend on wheels. Most people on d-90 are looking for bargains, so it wouldn't even occur to them to buy a new set of TF100 beadlocks unless they were being sold for a fraction of their real value.

I've seen them on a few, but I think price may be part of it.

They look amazing on white trucks, I've got a photo of them on a white nas90 I'll find tomorrow.

I like those wheels as well, those are a long way down the list though of mods vs needs.

Yeah, I like these, innovative 2x beadlocks that are street legal, Hutchinson makes the best wheels for military vehicles and trucks and I think can also be special ordered with CTIS features, (auto air down and up)

Just FYI I believe that that the headlock rings are sold separately and they become 8" when using them.

They look pretty good on the 110.
Just curious...do you still have the original bare silver 3-spoke Hunter alloys??

Daniel,

You have the truck that everybody here wants. Nice clean NAS 110 with original wheels. Why change it?

You're new here so my suggestion would be to drive the truck a while before making changes like this. I was once a new member here, too, and I had so many big and crazy ideas about what I wanted to do with my first truck. Looking back, thank God I never followed through with them. I eventually grew to appreciate the beauty of the classic Defender look and was glad that I didn't make the mods I had intended to make.

Wheels are pretty small and can be reversed but keep this advice in mind. It's like tattoos: you have a lifetime to get all the tattoos that you want but only one chance to be tattoo-less. Give yourself a year to enjoy your sweet NAS 110 and then start thinking about changes and whether you really want to make them.
