Boost Rims on 1985 110 with Wheel Adapters

Tires are 285/75r16 Hankook Dynapro MT's http://www.offroaders.com/tech/AT-MT...Hankook-MT.htm The rims woodn't fit so I had to buy spacers http://www.ezaccessory.com/Wheel_Ada.../5650-5650.htm The stance is a little wider than I would like, the tires actually stick out past the wheel arches a little bit.

John,

I did the same thing with my 110, added Boosts and spacers. The spacers really help with the turning radius, and then you can use the center caps. Two plusses.

After you drive it for a little while, you might want to tighten the lug nutz that hold the spacers to the hub. I have heard that they can loosen a bit at first. I experienced this when I first installed them as well.

Looks good!

Bought it in Martha's Vineyard earlier this year from the original owner 51K original miles. He bought it brand new from Land Rover (Suadi Arabian model hence the left hand drive) in 1985 and had it properly imported. The DOT actually made a custom vin plate and stamped his name right on it. The pic next to the Camel Trophy is when it was new, the two on the boat are on the way back from the Vineyard and the one with my son on top is when I finaly got it home.

Is that an NSX infront of your 110 in the pic with your son?

Haha, oh man I was way off...just enough of the headlight was showing to trick me.

That first pic as new looks great. I can only imagine the rust issues now though with a life on Martha's Vineyard. Or was she lucky?

Amazingly the thing is totaly solid. When he bought it he had this super heavy "military" grade undercoating sprayed on it. It's preserved it realy well.

I corresponded with that guy for a long time about buying that 110, but never could make it happen. You got yourself a good deal on that truck.

Anyone running spacers have an issue with the stock lugs not being long enough to mount the spacers safely? Come on, fess up. My lugs only thread on about 1/2 way on to the stock spindles.

My spacers came with lugs to mount it to the old studs. I think mine only threaded on about 1/2-2/3 of the way as well.

It's not the size of your stud that matters, it's how you use it.

Anyway, back on topic....
