110 tire fitment question

Can I run 255 85 R16 BFG MTs on a stock sprung 1984 110?

Does a 110 county have 6.5in wheels or 5.5in wheels? Is the offset different or does the 6.5 just stock out 1in further? Are they tube wheels? Where do I get 255 size tubes? I assume 235 85 R16 for tubes you just use 7.50 x 16 tubes.

I know, low tech question but . . . I think janey will want new tires soon and I rather run 255 rather than 235.

Ron, did you just read my mind ! God now I feel realy weird

But thanks for asking the question for me.

They look good I think.

For the rim offset it depends what rims you have. I have the Wolf ones and they are offset a little more than the original OEM ones. As for tubed or not it is supposed to be stamped on it.

I am putting (on friday) the exact tire size, make and model on my stock (for now) 84 D110 but I have the Wolf ones.

Good luck

Pat

Mark,

My 110 is not NAS. So I think I may have different wheels.

Pat,

I read your post and it occured to me I needed tires too. I would not run the 285 75 R16 on your truck, but with wolf wheels 255 85 R16 would be fine (which I believe is what I replied to you with as an answer). The issue I have is I am not sure what wheels I have and what will work with them. They look like 6.5 in wheels and they look tubeless, but I don't know if they are tubeless rims or just tube rims without tubes.

I have a set of 15 x6in series III wheels I could run 33x 9.50 BFG ATs on, but I want the D load range 255 85 R16 BFG MTs.

In any event, I have a couple feelers out for Disco I steel wheels to use if my wheels don't work right.

Ron,


If the wheels are ANR4636 they are the 5.5s.
The series style rim
If they are ANR1534 they are 6.5s.
The so-called 130 rim.

The offset is narrower on the ANR4636.


Forget this chubby 255 and 235 talk and get yourself some 7.5s.

Stock wheels are 16x5.5 with arounf 4.7" of backspacing. 255/85/16 will fit but are a little big for the rims.

When you talk about 285s not fitting, do you mean they wont fit the 6.5" Wolf wheels or do you mean they wont fit under a stock truck. Because I am lifting the truck 2" OME style next month and want the wider tires fitted.

Thanks for the info

Pat

To my understanding they will fit on 6.5in under a stock truck but I don't know 100%, I just prefer the 255 85 r16

So I'm looking for a consensus on the issue of putting tubeless tires on the OEM NAS 110 wheels (which are marked for tubed tires). I have the original tires and wheels, and as such, running tubes with those michelin X's. one is flat, and I can't find a local shop that will repair the tube. what a pita. I want to convert to bfg m/t's, as it's always been my favorite on other vehicles, but the land rover manuals state that if the wheels are for tubes, then you must run tubes even with tubeless tires. I checked and the wheels are riveted. All the posts I've searched through indicate that NAS 110 owners are running tubeless on their rims. so what's the verdict?

I have NATO wheels marked "tubed" and I run tubless tires. The shop just has to install a valve with a larger diameter fitment to cover the wider hole. that is all you have to to go for it.

We never run tubes in the ANR1534PM ( or the NATO wheels). I have 35" Swampers on my own rig with ANR1534PMs, no issues. Never an issue with a customer car either. If you run tubes you can't air down much off road beacuse the tubes with rub and then blow. Been there, done that, go tubeless.
