didn't realize steelies were so hard to find...

I have just come to the sad realization that the white 6.5" x 16" wheels are difficult to find. Wolf wheels are readily available, and lots of 5.5's, but not any white 6.5's on ebay. Did they switch to 6.5" in 1993? Its just for a spare, so I guess I could use a 5.5, but would prefer the larger. Any ideas on where I could find one? thanks for the help. Im planning an excursion through Big Bend and two people have suggested I carry two spares (which I assume is not necessary, but we're going in to the back country and it would suck not to have it....)

Yes, they are difficult to find, but be patient they come up on this board now and then. Just search for
"ANR1534" or "130 wheel" or obviously "NAS110 wheel"

I missed out on few sets before finding mine locally, so be patient.

The ANR 1534's are tough to source, but it's worth it. I searched for over a year. Keep bumping your thread and a hoarder will eventually surface.

why are these steelies so desireable over wolf's? ANR1534 are tubed vs wolfs that are tubeless. Ive considered switching mine to wolfs and wondering if Im missing something.

My guess is originality? Not sure, I do like the look of the wolfs more.

I think it's just personal preference on styling. I like the looks of the solid wheels versus the wolf wheels.

I've run my AN1534's tubeless on different vehicles for about 5 years with no issues.

thanks for the replies - I'll wait out the hoarders...

Yes - for me its the fact that they maintain the original look, though I've deviated from original on other stuff, so probably more just preference. I know some people think there is some value to the air flow to the brakes with wolf wheels, though Im not sure it makes a huge difference (but I could be wrong). and I run mine tubeless also

Do Wolfs and 1534s have the same offset? Seems like the 1534s give a slightly wider stance but I could be wrong.

They may well be, but they look so much better than green genuine ones.

Had a set of ant 1534 but sold them years ago. Using my D1 Casters for now. Alloys don't last forever. Perhaps time to start hoarding...
