I believe they are one and the same. The AB catalogue says they are known as "Wolfe wheels" overseas.

I thought the WOLF was the military designation for the Defenders?

Wolf is the designation for the Military Defenders that started in 1996 with 300TDi power plant and custom tube type frame and roll cage. They were produced from 96-2003 and are now discontinued.

Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.

Wolf wheels are very heavy duty steel wheels. The rim is 6'5" wide and they have more offset then a standard landrover steel wheel. They come in either a tubed or tubeless configuration. New about 40 over here in GB.

Most of this I know guys, but thanks. I am trying to learn the difference, if any, between them.

Sorry for the stupid question but when you say more offset do you mean wider track width or narrower track width.
