would you sell the wheels without the tires? Also, I have a home in CT so I can pick them up.

And are those 235/75 R16 tires? Probably likely if they came off a Discovery at the junk yard. Here's how they look on a Defender...

That just doesn't look right. Those tires need to be a little bigger.

I m 99 percent sure they're 235/85/16 off a defender. Welcome to the board Eric. Lots of you probably know zippytow and don't realize it. I bet he can get the parts to Nantucket or MVY pretty cheap or maybe the Virgin Islands. Not so sure about other locales.

Agreed! Zoomed way in and they are 85's. Those will look significantly better than 235/75! A bit skinny, but tall enough to look normal.
