Yes, it should fit. NAS trucks have the same column (splines) as early ROW 90/ 110s. My 110 had this wheel and I replaced it with a NAS (actually a late td5 XS) style wheel. The pictured wheel is slightly larger in diameter than than NAS version and the rim is not as thick.

Fun bit, as you will see, is getting the old wheel off. Got a 3 lb. hammer?

TD5 Steering Wheel

There is one on ebay UK right now. It's like the NAS wheel, but leather wrapped. I love mine.

If you are dead set on the 4 spoke that you originally pictured I have one I'll give you.

As my brother said they don't pop off easily, especially if your truck is a soft top thats been left in the rain with the top off a few times like my 90. I used a big soft faced dead blow hammer on the back of the old wheel.

I strongly recommend a steering wheel puller, it' s an inexpensive
and very practical tool. No need to be hammering nothing ...

This is where I get confused. I appreciate all the responses and input.

I called Rovers Down South and very nice guy helped out and told me that the four-spoke wheel I showed at the top of the post will NOT fit my NAS D90.

Is there a difference between the 90 and 110 NAS or otherwise?

Does anyone know the actual part numbers that will work with the NAS D90 (UK equivalent)??

Not going to say George is wrong but the Momo steering wheel and hub that were in my 94 NAS 90 fit my 83 110 (the 4 spoke early defender wheel you pictured) perfectly with no issue. Like I offered you can have one for the cost of shipping.
