Talking BP's deal of the day! Nice April fools special!

Found this on British Pacific's web site..........

Give your 88 or 109" a fresh, modern look with these chrome bolt-on spinners! They rotate just like the much more expensive versions, but these 24" wheel covers bolt on to your center hubs, and extend over your stock tires. This way it looks like you have super low profile tires while actually retaining the ride and handling of stock. For off roading, simply pop open the center cap and unbolt them from the hubs. (The manufacturer strongly recommends that they be removed for off road use, especially in heavy brush.)
The kits come with 5 spinners: the spare rotates from the lower air pressure at the back of the vehicle, a unique look available only to Series Land Rover, Land Cruiser, and Jeep owners! The kits also contain the extended double headed bolts for the center hubs; if equipped with locking hubs let us know the brand: bolts are available for most styles. Special oil for lubricating the spinner bearings are also included in the kit, but the wheels come pre-lubed from the factory so you won't need to use it for a while.
$395/ set of 5

That's much less than you'd pay for one spinner wheel on an Escalade or Suburban!
Check your local laws; not legal in some states.

Did anyone catch the latest Rovers North news letter/paper. Got mine today and they are selling 18" Rims with a 5 X 6.5 bolt patern for the defender.

I found this on Ebay and immediately thought of Phil. Looks like you can get the Hurricanes for our trucks now, without getting a spacer.

Will these fit on Phils 90?

I would only go with bigger rims if I was running 52" tractor tires on Mogs.
