Nato steelies

FOR SALE 5 USED NATO WOLF VENTED STEEL WHEELS, TUBED-WELDED. P#ANR5593PM.

1 Has some rock rash but is not bad at all. Someone rattle canned them black. Geuine steel wheel lugs included. Located in western Colorado. Prefer Local pickup, but can have delivered any where in CO. for cheap. 235/85r16 General Grabber AT2's installed currently. Not much tread left but would work for a bit. 1 has an untouched SS Trexxus MT 235/85r16 mounted, brand new. Looking to get $225.00 for the set. We can work out s&h if needed.

Sounds perfect for me. Shipping to 19041? Do the 4 generals have at least enough tread to pass inspection?

John, can you shoot me a shipped quote to 19041?

I could theoretically do a business address in 19801 too.

someone explain this "welded" portion to me. I bought some tubed wheels and am trying to figure out if I need to sell them and buy tubless or if I can use them still. Currently the spare won't hold its valve stem, and I can't air down past 25psi or I am very likely to lose a bead..

Somehow I think the answer must be in this "welded" part of tubed wheels...

Nato Steel Wheels

The steelies are Dales. You should be fine with the welded wheels. You just need to use the bigger valve stems. They are avail @ any Napa, Carquest. I should have them ready to go out early next week Dale. Sorry for the delay. Life you know.

welded vs. riveted is something that pertains to the older style LR steel rims. Most of the old 16" steel rims available on older series I, II, and IIa rovers were constructed by riveting the wheel center into the outer rim. The rivets were commonly blamed for air leakage if the rims were used without tubes. I do not know for sure whether later steel rims from Series III on through 90s and 110s still used this riveted construction or not as I have not looked at them that closely. I suspect they did though.

Wolf or NATO rims are all welded construction regardless of whether they are of the Tubed or Tubeless variety. What makes a rim Tubeless is the addition of an extra ridge or hump just inboard of the bead seating area. I believe that feature can be seen from outside the rim. And the rims will most likely be marked "Tubeless."

I have never owned Tubeless rims on any of my Land Rovers (except the RR that came with alloys) so I can't attest to any difference in performance. I regularly air down to 15-18 psi on the trails. I have only had one trail flat and that was with the alloys when I broke one on a submerged rock.

I bought my tubed style wolf/NATO rims from a guy in NY that said he always got trail flats from popped beads- so he bought Tubeless style wolf/NATO rims instead. At that time he reported that the tubeless rims did not solve the problem and that he still regularly popped beads on his tires.

I suspect bead retention has more to do with tire size/pressure and driving style than it does with whether or not you have rivets holding your wheels together, or an extra tiny little ridge inside your rim.

Additionally, I am pretty sure that the extra ridge in a tubeless style rim is a safety feature really intended more to keep the tire from coming off the rim during a failure at roadway speed, as opposed to the expectation that somehow it will prevent the tire from being forced off the bead by the pressure of a 6000lb truck forcing it up against a large immovable rock or other object.

You need the larger valve stems with LR steel rims.
