The bolt pattern is the same, the other issue is whether they will clear the center hubs, especially if you have locking hubs on the front axle. There are other folks on here that would know better than I do.

You're going to need spacers to fit alloys on any of the pre 1994 hubs/driveflanges. They are too big preventing the wheels from seating properly. If you get spacers, ensure they have the lip on them to properly seat the alloys, the vendor should know and advertise them as suitable for alloys.

Even if they do, please don't do that to a classic...I assume you have a buyer for your wheels who's got the 109?

Land Rover hubs that can be used with alloys have the studs marked with a slash or line at the end. If they do not then it is not safe.

not sure what alloys you have but i have never seen any that will clear even the stock hubs; The bolt pattern is the same but the 2a studs are likely the smaller diameter ones unless someone has put in the series 3/defender studs. Bad idea all the way around.
