Heh, why did NATO rims suddenly get so popular? I had never heard of them (or seen them on a Defender) before last week, then I ordered a set yesterday and it seems like everybody and their dog just got some last week. It's like the Chinpokomon episode of South Park. "Those are so last week".

Speaking of nice garages, has anybody ever gotten together and built a co-op garage? Imagine if all of the Rover folk around Salt Lake got together and rented a garage out in the sticks and stocked it with our personal tools, some jacks and jackstands, air compressor...

I am normally not a fan of white wheels but that looks great on your truck.

So what is that garage, anyways? It seems too empty to be a business, so is it just your toy shed? Lucky bastard...

They've been around for years. Several people changed over to them last year. Wicks comes to mind and a few others.

Those Walker Evans wheels at RT. Now those are sweet. Too bad they'd look like total posuer wheels on my truck though...

The lift I am running is OME HD up front/Med duty in rear. I think it is 751/764, can't quite recall the numbers.
The garage is actually half work, half fun. It is basically a warehouse that my father and I have turned into a hanger for our helicopters, and storage for our business. So, yes, it does just keep our toys in one half. Thanks for the compliments on the wheels. I would like to see some pics of your 90's too.

I really like how that looks. IMO, most lifted Defenders with bigger tires end up looking too much like weekend toys or attention devices, not the purpose built vehicles they are meant to be. This looks right, and I will keep this mind for my own.

Like the set up! What brand of tires are those? MTRs? BF Goodrich or Goodyear?

I have a set of NATO wheels & lug nuts on ebay right now. Here's the link...http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=220069720109
The reserve is the same as the buy-it-now of $300.00

These look great. Do you know the backspacing? I'm told the wolfs are 4.75". I just measured my alloys and they are about 5.5", but these appear to have the same look (width wise) as my alloys. Not sure if rim width is a factor here.

I'm hoping to find 15" steel rims that have the same offset as the wolfs, but cheaper. So far it seems the backspacing is too small on the ones I have seen.

thanks
