Those wolfs are mostly foroverlanding and the extra weight of the roof tents. I imagine they are tough but quite heavy . Ive not been particularly easy to the alloys on my Classic and have never lost a beat or sprung a leak .
Wolfs are only 2 lbs heavier than a LR Disco Steel wheel (although that was measuring a repo Wolf). IMO tire weight would make a bigger difference as that is outside rotational weight.

Agree on the alloys and their performance. The cutout on them for the tire bead is deep. If weight is of concern they are 10 lbs lighter than a Wolf but you would have to add a lb or 2 for the bigger lug nuts.

16x8 Black steelies from Lucky8 and 285/75R16 BFG KM2s or if you want wider go 305/70R16. The skinny option would be 255/85R16s on Wolf wheels. My .02 cents.

Just installed a new set of RN black steel 6.5x16 wheels and 255/85-16 Cooper S/T Maxx wheels on my 110. Not too many miles, but they seem to ride great, fairly quiet. A bit of rub at full lock (stock suspension) but I'll adjust the steering stops shortly.

Hi Landan,

Was there a conclusion/decision ?

Have a similar situation with the 3" lift and am wondering what a 255/85R16 looks like on a Wolf wheel with that lift. . .

Anyone have a photo, please ?

you don't need 3" of lift to clear 255/85/16

A bit earlier with a lower lift, but from the side. No sliders, no spare, so it sits a little funny.

Hopefully these photos help.

Thank you. Yes, I know. Already have the lift, and 35s, just wondering if I can get away with 33s with that lift... ?

Thank you. That's the stance I would like, but am on the 3" lift due to the 35s... and 4.56 gears !

What do you guys think of the ANR1534PM wheel on an NAS D90? Putting the price aside for just a moment, I like the fact that they don't have the vent holes.

ANR1534PM Road Wheel Steel Land Rover 130 F/C 2A/2B and 109 1 Ton 6.5 x 16 20.6mm Inset

LOL

You can find them cheaper than that.
That's almost 2 grand for a set of 5...

A friend of mine is selling his D1 with a set of 1534's; the whole truck is $6K.

Wolf Tubeless wheels.
With tubes.
On tubeless tires.

Blame the Royal Air Force.
