White steel rims with 315/75s

Is anyone running 315/75 tires on Defender white steel rims? Post some photos if you are, I am interested in switching to steels instead of my alloys.

Hi Dan,

Here's a link to a Coniston Green wagon with white steelies. Tire size is not what you're looking for but it should give you a good idea of how they will look.

Isn't that too wide for a 6.5" rim ?

Paul,

Is that a local (New England) truck or did you just find the photo somewhere?
