The rear tires will rub on the spring perches. You would need spacers to clear.

It makes more sense to get aftermarket rims as they will have the correct back spacing. You can get 7 and 8" easily.

The wolf wheels are the perfect width for 255s.

^^^^^^^ X2 what Red90 said! 255/85 BFG KM2's and Wolfs are a perfect combo and look great on an Ex MoD truck.

Welcome to the forum and well done on getting your first Defender.

The actual Disco wheel will fit all corners without issue ref hubs,wheel studs or wheel stud length.

For info I run 235x85x16 on my '86 ex army 110 without any issues.

All the best.

Thank you all for the info. Just want to make sure again if I can fit 255/85/16 tire on my Existing army wolf wheels(rims)? I am going to take photo for tire. I can't finger out the size of the tire.

Yes those are 7.5x16 XZLs. I'll take a couple of them off your hands if you are looking to part with them.

With all this talk about wheels, I'm wondering how many people take into consideration the weight of the tires they put on. And what is the difference in weight between the alloys vs. the steels?
