Yes, sir! If you measure one of your stock 7.50R16 you'll find its total width to be wider than 7.5" and its total height to be taller than (7.5+16+7.5) 31".

I guess it's tire (tyre) math?

Out of curiosity, I have a set of stock 110 wheels in fantastic brush painted condition (why do they paint things with brushes over there!?) Are they worth anything?

And PMs have been answered.

How much lift do you need to fit these on a 110?

Thanks!

I have 8.25 XZL's on steels that fit fine with 2 inch OME lift on my 90. Not sure how heavier 110 would ride, but I think I've seen 110's set up this way. EE has spring isolators that would raise it a tad more, I have those as well.
The new BFG AT KO2's 285/75 R16 on '97 SW alloys rub on full turn, same height tire but much wider.

They worked great on the highway and mild off road with no lift and 25 year old springs on my 1988 110CSW, but I know to get full articulation you'd want around a 2 inch lift. I was planning on running one of the lifts from the UK like this one (link) since the 40mm (under 2") of lift is above stock ride height and my 110 was no longer at stock after a quarter of a century of duty. But you can see what it looked like in the pics on the first page - that 110 has no lift.

^^^ off topic... (lovely tyres by the way, a friend of mine over here has a LWB G wagen with a set of 8.25 XZL's on... it's a beast!)

But... I wouldn't touch those Britpart supergaz lift kits with a barge pole... give it about 2000 miles and 6 months, and the springs will be as saggy as your current old ones...

Get OME, fit & forget. (or factory HD, cheaper and they last)

Good to know! Main thing I liked about that kit was the new angle adjusted radius arms front and rear. Might still get the kit just for those and fit the OME springs and shocks in conjunction.
Thats after I get another Defender though, so I don't want to get too far ahead of myself!

I'm going to leave these up for sale but am going to be checking in less frequently. Best way to contact me will be email, my address is in the original ad.

I won't be upset if they don't sell, just could use the space in the shed and figured one of you guys might want them!

Happy holidays and best wishes to everyone!
