Sorry I didn't want to derail this thread, but i'd be game if the price was right on a well built alloy looking 'steel wheel'. I think the hard part is keeping the price competitive.

Like the JE Engineering 18" alloys. The price point needs to be your focus. You will not be successful if you charge $3k for five rims. There is a limited market if you're trying to sell to just NAS Defender owners. You'll have to plan to market to the guys who have the import trucks, too. That means the cheaper the better because people are spending their entire allotment on the trucks and upgrading piecemeal. If you can make a wheel like that for $150 each you will sell a ton. $300 each, not as much. $750 each, no way.

This, so far, has been the coolest steel wheel to alloy wheel I've seen.

I'd like to hear about this 18" Boost fitted to Discos.
Nice Morgan, even though it's a newer one.

I was saying 18" alloys (genuine/non-genuine/doesn't matter) were fitted to the Defender, so id like to see an ANR1534 or ANR4583PM look in alloy in an 18"

I know it doesn't matter but saying were implies Land Rover did it. Can implies they will fit.

Could also fit Range Rover wheels if you wanted to.

18 inch boosts have been around for a while. Surprised the NY crowd haven't adopted it as their standard.

Craddocks and others sell.

Daniel, PIC 3 is super creepy.

I have seen the 20" aftermarket boosts as well. I was just getting ready to take a big old sip of hateraide if LR UK was keeping more cool stuff from us.

PS if there was an 18" Mondial that would fit a Defender I'm pretty sure that would be my wheel of choice.

Specs Request

Can those who feel so inclined help me gather specs for the ANR1534 steel wheel? I am looking for Section Drawings, Dimensions, Size, Weight Capacity, Offset, Pitch Circle Diameter (PCD), etc.

Speaking as someone who doesn't know much about science and stuff I will say that having cross sections and diagrams of a steel wheel will probably not do much to help especially with the purposeful design of the steel wheel.

Maybe if you were trying to reproduce a classic Fuchs wheel or some old school BBS but this wheel? Not so much.

Reason being, that the shape of the steel wheel is really to accommodate the construction style that you aren't going to use. The face was probably some 1/4 steel plate stamped into the needed shape to a provide the correct offset and clearance for a brake caliper. The barrel was likely similarly formed and the two were likely welded or pressed together.

It doesn't really matter since you are probably going for a single casting (or forging if you are making the most expensive defender wheel ever).

Having said all that, the cross section just needs to be penned to look like the steel wheel for the sake of aesthetics and not as a structural design requirement.

As long as the offset is where you need it and you sculpt the face to look like the steel wheel all is fine (on the aesthetics side). Structure and strength might need some real analysis by someone with a fancy computer and math skills.

First I'm going to figure out if these can be made. Then at what cost. Then I can consider sizes. This is currently pretty low on the project priority scale at the moment. I am preparing for the launch of a new product in the adventure gear category so I need to get that out the door first before I can move on. I'll probably build a new wheel in Solidworks based on a combination of measurements from both the Steel and the Alloy wheels I own.

Read through this, a lot of it is focused on the older deep dish wheels but you will find some good information.

20.6 mm offset

Assuming you would be approaching established wheel makers, may want to talk to these folks as they seem to have a pretty flexible designs w/ their interchangeable center and rim sections. I almost bought a set from them for another Brit car project a while back but wound up going another route.

Their Billet 46 Classic Build could be a good starting point assuming they could get the center hole large enough.
