Defender Rims

I just got a new defender tyre mount kit for the hood of my series hybrid.
The catch is that the hole in the center of the rim on my series rims is smaller than the hold down bracket in the kit. My question is will the spare rim for a defender fit on a series truck. I did notice that the spare rim is different from the driving rims!

If so does anyone have spare rim for sale...lol

Thanks

Thomas,

I thought that the steel wheels were interchangeable between series rigs and defenders, tho the size, offset etc may not be appropriate for a given application. I know that Defender steel wheels fit on Series rovers...as I have them on my 88. Are you using the defender tire mount?

Paul,
Yes I am, I have not put it on yet. I was checking everything over...reading the directions, when i noticed the discrepancy. I just got into this chaos under a year ago, not the most mechanically inclinde guy, so i am slowly learning.
But it looks like the spare has a larger center hole and the hub will go through.

You need a steel wheel. There are two bonnet mount spare kits, one is for alloys and one is for steel wheels. I assume you got a steel wheel.

Your pic of the Rostyles is accurate, the center hole measures about 2 1/4", but the Freestyle rims dont look like they are that much bigger, the center hole of the rim needs to be 4 1/4".

Are the alloys/freestyles that large?
