I Wouldn't want the deep dish wheels because you can't use hammer on wheel weights on the outside. Wheels never balance as well with stick on wheel weights.

I found that to be true with an not-so-experianced wheel guy. Once you get it right youre all good. Plus there are lots of "Hi-Speed" vehicles that have a similar situation. Ah perspective...its a wonderful thing...

I run Disco steelies and the tire guy put all the weights on the inside (and these were with 35's). Glad he did as I am not as worried about popping off a weight if I scrub a rock. And that has happened before when I had my Wolfs.

The deep dish are my favorite looking alloys. They just look real clean IMO.

IMHO - Boost wheels are the only way to go with a Defender.

Do it!

Nah sold it to Gustavo two weeks after that picture which was taken @ MAR 2009.
Bought my 130 the Sunday night after I got home from that event.

As far as balancing goes on deep dish wheels- I've had no issues. I have tried both weights and dynabeads. I like weights better.

Always liked the TWR wheels best. Reminiscent of the Minilite rallye wheels I had on a Mini.
But my poor truck has to put up with the Castor wheels off my D1. Thought about flipping the spare to a castor, but am sticking to the D1 steelie and will use the Land Rover wheel cover it came with.

Just sold my d1 to an 18yr old kid and made a point of telling him the TWR's on it were special. Didn't seem to register. Oh well.

FYI- As of this morning the rims are still there. He wont budge on price, still $50.00. He says they are worth $30.00 each at the scrap yard...I offered $40 each.

I brought my truck and added Boost wheels before coming to this site. I just liked how they look on the Defenders. Once joining this site, I learned how much they are sort for. I was going to paint them matt black in a few months until someone told me that I had Tomb Raider Boost and that they were much more expensive that the regular Boost wheels. I like Boost wheels the best.
