question: I have the NAS 110 with the original steel wheels and original tires. If I switch to 255/85/16 BFG Mud terrains, can they be mounted on the original steel wheels, or will I have to get new wheels?

They will work fine on your original steel wheels.

That depends on the rim width - the atock rims on a 110 may be 5-1/2 x 16 wheels which would be a bit narrow for a 255 tire. I think the recommended minimum width for this size is a 6-1/2 rim. Disco steel rims are 7.0 x 16 and are readily available. I had the 255/85 BFG mud T/A's on my D-90 and went back to a 235/85 - it just looks and drives better.

The stock NAS 110 wheel width is 6.5". The Euro 5.5". Your wheels should be OK. I'm running the 255/85 R16s on stock
D90 7" rims. Waiting on a new steel set 8 wide though..

I wish someone had some better pics. Maybe from the front, so we could see how narrow they are.

Just installed OME 2" lift (751/764), a RN bumper with a Husky 10 and BFG 255/85R16s (busy weekend). I've attached pics from before the tire install and after. All pics are after the lift. After every thing was done (lift, winch, tires) the Rover sat about 3 inches higher off the ground and very level.
