[QUOTE="ymc226;537286"]Current tires on the Boost alloys are BFG All Terrain T/A 265-75R-16 tubeless. If I go with the 16x6.5 Wolfs, can I use the same tires or do I need a different size? ------ Follow up post added June 12th, 2014 10:44 AM ------ Thanks. I'll have them stripped and then powder coated. Would you suggest off white or eggshell as opposed to bright white for the wheels?[/

FYI, the powder coating servicer may be limited on what colors they can offer unless you are lucky like Me and had board member Jrose get a perfect match of LR Limestone done on my County steelies.

I don't think I'll get an exact match like you. The local powder coaters told my my choices would be bright white, off white and eggshell.

Is there any choice with powder coating in terms of gloss vs matte as in paint?

You need to go a little further down the road than your "local guy "then. There is a virtual cornucopia of different types of powder coats and colors and finishes. They even make antifouling powder coats for underwater yacht hardware/ship bottoms now.

Oh nice. I must have forgotten about those pics. You have what are called freestyle wheels, not boosts. Boosts are the holy grail of wheels, followed by the NAS110/130 Steel wheels (ANR1534), then wolfs, then sawtooth (only because of price), then SVX wheels, then Terrafirma wheels, then Gulf Coast Rovers wheels, then tornados, then freestyles, then rostyles, then deep dish wheels, then whatever Pedro still has in his garage.

Here are my boosts.

Aren't Boost wheels the Land Rover equivalent of a Guido necklace?

Those wheels look much better than mine. If you were to powder coat alloy wheels, would you be potentially weaken them?

Oh no. I've opened another pandora's box of questions.

Predicting that the NY crowd will move on to 18 inch boosts, or 16 will be the East coach size, 18, the West coast size....

I bought what Atlantic British advertises as Wolf Wheels with part# ANR 4583 http://www.roverparts.com/Parts/ANR4583SILA

From the back they are welded in 5 spots. Is this correct. I've read that the steel is very thick but to my untrained eyes, they don't look "husky." Granted, the wheel has some heft, but I don't have a point of reference.

Do these look like Wolf type wheels or are they more of a copy cat look?

I did think that LR wolf rims where also riveted and welded?

It is only the center that is thick. The rim part is normal.

Those are BritPart Wolf/NATO replicas. I have them on my truck as well. Pretty sure they are same specs as a Wolf wheel maybe not as heavy duty but pretty close. Not sure where BritPart gets them made.
