What is the width of these steelies?


This thing isn't adding pictures properly... My pictures are upright... Already posted them under sightings.

Aren't those the same wheels shown in the '94 year brochure as the standard rim?

Did anyone get a truck that didn't have the then-optional alloys? I remember seeing trucks without the full cage and only the tonneau cover, but even they had alloys.

Are they as tough as wolfs/NATO rims?

They are thinner gauge and probably not as strong as a NATO rim. But they are a few pounds lighter and should be pretty easy to source if you bend one.

I used them to mount my 35's to but painted them a dark grey vs leaving them the stock silver.

Disco I steelies are great wheels. They are tubeless with the bead retention lip (the vast majority of land rover steel wheels are tube type). They are dirt cheap. They are plenty strong.

Keep your wolf wheels. I try not to get too-into aesthetics, but those look fugly - probably why they go for so dirt cheap.

I believe your right, they were technically stock rims on '94 and '95 from the sales brochures I have.
I like em...
