Defender Steel Wheels

I just removed the steel wheels from the 110 to clean some of the layers of paint off before I fit new tires. When the tires came off I seen that they had tubes in them. Upon more careful inspection of the wheels I noticed that one wheel has the center section welded to the outer ring. The other 3 wheels have a large rivet attaching the centre to the outer ring. My question is, will these wheels hold air or will they need a tube. I hope everyone can understand what i mean from my explanation.

Thanks

Troy

They are actually identical in every way with the exception 1 is welded the others are riveted.

My NAS D110 had steel wheels and came with tubes. I ditched the tubes when I put on new tires. No leaks!

Your probably fine but just for insurance, I would weld the other three and lay down some silicone. Might as well while you have them off.

Could this be a quality control issue?

Check the part numbers on the weels. they will be stamped on.

You can run tubless tires on tubed wheels... they will take a special valve stem... Which IMO is better than normal ones, last longer and gives you the future option of putting tubes in if you ned to.

that said the ones with the rivits will probably not hold air unless they are sealed... at least that is my understanding. Do what buck said and run a bead around the seam and rivits.
