Steel wheels

Will these pro comps fit my early 110 with solid disc front and drum sals in the rear?

Any spacers required? ill be running 235/85-16

I would prefer my tires to be taller and skinnier so im assuming i should go with the 7in wide ver instead of the 8

Why not go a NATO/Wolf in a 6.5" width?

That would match up nicely with the 235 width of the tires and cosmetically be a much better match especially on an early 110.

Also my current wheels are Disco 1 spare wheels i think

yups, my issue when i bought the truck from Draaron he stated that it had just been painted. Well it had, except they didnt scuff or do any prep whatsoever on the wheels or body.

So now i have flaking paint all over the truck and wheels. Getting them powdercoated would be just almost as pricey as getting a new set of wheels it seems


I think i prefer the nato look...



it looks like the ANR4583 is the correct wheel, tubeless with 5.5 in backspacing is that correct?

To answer the original question, the 16x7 should work fine. The only difference from your current wheels is they will sit out around 1" more outwards, which is a good thing.

Wolfs have around 4.5" BS, which is what you want.

all good info, Will the 6.5in wide wheels give my tires a taller profile compared to a 7 in rim?

Are you asking, will the same 235 85 R16 tire on a .5" narrower rim result in an incrementally taller tire?

Not in a meaningful way.

I very much doubt you will find Wolf wheels anywhere near the ballpark as the Procomp wheels. WHOLESALE in the UK for a Wolf wheel is around $65....which is around full retail of the Procomp in the US.

It says 1600 lbs for 15" and 2000 lbs for 16".

Click on the tabs below as they show a bunch of sizes including 16". Way overpriced though. You can get Allied Beadlocks in the price range.

For a 235 those Wolfs/NATO's will work better like Red90 said. But they will be more $$$ than the Pro Comps.

I don't know how close you are to Atlantic British but they have these: http://www.roverparts.com/Parts/ANR4583PM.cfm You might be able to save some money driving up and getting them in person. I bought mine from AB years ago and AFAIK there are the real NATO wheels. Heavy as hell at 30+ lbs each but they seem to be strong and durable and have a good offset.
