Bolt Pattern of new UK Defenders

Looking for wheels for my D-90 and I wanted to get the wheels that come on the current models in the UK. Two questions:

1. Are the bolt patterns the same as a 95 NAS 90?

2. Are there any US retailers?

Thanks

Bolt pattern is the same. They use the Boost wheels and NAS 110 steel wheels still I believe.

I think you mean VPLDW0001YCM not VPLDW00001YCM

That dual wheel is only used on the special edition 60th defenders. nice wheels though (pattern ones are already available)

Don't forget the extremely heavy duty Blindo wheels as well. http://www.silverlinewheels-tyres.co...indowheels.htm

As used by the MoD on the current e-wmik2 rovers.

the current XS wheels are the Deep Dish alloys that came on some late 90's disco's. For some reason I like them better than the boosts that seem to appeal to the masses.

Here is a SVX style wheel at a much better price. No affiliation. Just found them when I was searching for these wheels some time ago.

Great find on the price, wow. Thanks. So I dabbled on tirerack and I noticed that 16x7 requires a much narrower tire like in the 235/85 range. Is there a tire that everyone prefers?

Only thing about those wheels is the fact that they are copies. Genuine which say defender are more

I can live without the defender on the wheels for basically twice the price

I could to if there was no writing on it. The 4x4 ltd is a bit dumb. Might as well say generic.

At least with boost copies you cant tell

I really like the Zu Alloys I fitted and the extra offset is nice as is much easier access to hose the mud out of the brakes.
