It has amazed me the range of opinions on the Fuel Wheels and Nitto tires that came on my Defender. In general, the younger the person who saw them. the more they were liked. Like you I think the original Tornado wheels and some Michelein AT tires look great on it. Given the continuum of opinion, I decided to include the Fuel wheels and Nittio tires in with this sale of my D90-kind of a nod to the "Have it your way" slogan. The same philosophy on the Moto-Lita replacement steering wheel and the extended seat bases. As a tall guy, I love the 14" (diameter) Moto-Lita steering wheel and the extra length of the extended seat bases. But if the buyer wants to take these out, the original L.R. wheel and the regular length seat bases are included in this deal. Harry
Any member of defender source.com or the Rovers North Forum buying this Defender will receive a $3,000 discount off the asking price as long as the deal closes during the month of November 2015. Also note that the oil and filter were changed on 10/29/2015 at 36,353 mile.
My research indicates that the extra wide wheel arch eyebrows are made by Terrafirma and available through Rovers North, Atlantic British, Safari Heritage Parts and perhaps other dealers in North America. They were on the vehicle when I bought it.
The Terrafirma flares are styled to look like bushwackers, but the screw dimples are faux/style elements, not structural. In other words, the aren't attached by drilling holes through the fender. I'm pretty sure Arcadeus has them on his truck as well -Jeff

Wonder what brand they are. The Terrafirma arches seem to have fewer fasteners, or faux fasteners, or whatever they are..
As of 1200 EST on November 4, 2015, I am taking my 1997 NAS Defender 90 ST off of the market. It took a serious prospect to make me realize that I am not ready at this time to walk away from a life time love affair with Defenders.
