Beadlocks for Defender

i would like some headlock wheels for the upcoming season.

I really like the rock monster land cruiser wheel but they don't make the wheel in the required 120mm defender bolt pattern..

does anyone know if there is a spacer made that will convert the 120mm to the land cruiser 150mm?

if not, any suggestions for a similar looking deadlock wheel?

thank you

If you need beadlocks then spacers would be out of the question i think.

Before you get confused, Defenders do not use a 120 mm wheel pattern. It is 5 on 6.5" (165.1mm).

Imho the defender specific Hutchinson wheels are the best looking ones out there in the proper 16" size as well... the sidewall is a good thing

Matt Lee made beadlocks that fit the stock Defender config. It's just a matter of hunting them down.

Zu's are alloy, these are steel, with a double rolled edge... took me a good couple hours to get all 4 tires mounted (without leaking) and torque all the bolts down.

Yeah, Matt Lee roll-forms the steelies. It's actually kind of interesting.

I have the non-bead lock Matt Lee's on my 110. These bead locks I found in the UK for my friends buggy, we had the rubber taken off and shipped the 5 of them here to Vancouver.

I think they just suit the buggy better then the non bead lock versions.

Hopefully we will have this project completed in the next couple months and test these suckers out!

Landy Andy had a set that developed some cracks around the welds. apparently there were some issues about 2007 with a production run. From all I have read (and experienced) issues were solved. However I do inspect mine on occasion.

You can also get steel double bead locks from Stazworks, they are heavy but very well made.

I'm running cheapo wagon wheels with weld-on beadlocks. They work, but gawd they are heavy. I can feel the extra mass when driving. But off road...8psi...yas...

Medium Pimpin' by Max Thomason, on Flickr

Its a compromise as I don't hardly ever use this set of tires. So they aren't perfect, but for running them once or twice a year, its fine.

Walker Evans beadlocks are awesome, and they have them for Land Rovers. Tisdale had them.

They probably don't advertise them because I doubt they sell many for land rovers. But if you contact them they will make them for you.
