These wheels are Geuine Military grade Land Rover MOD green.
As above these are NOT ANR4583PM which is a lower cost wheel.

I dislike folk walking all over something like this.

Gotta be a rule about it somewhere.

Even unwritten.

The wheels that you are all ranting about are spurious, mickey mouse mate! They are civilian knock offs. The real thing is what I am offering. But its okay. Thanks for your helpful input.

Do the "wimpy" civy wheels offered in the US have a long history of failure? Would that be the reason to pay more for these imports?

That is the poorest analogy! So people buying Wolf wheels from RN are just posing?

Besides subjective description, personal opinion and blanket statements why should a man pay twice the money for the same thing? What's the USP of these wheels? They're steel? Round? Aesthetic design?

Simple - it's not the same thing.

I hope this thread can return to its regularly scheduled programming.

All knock off parts carry the same oem part numbers, this is the same regardless of US, German, etc brand of vehicle. The Britpart wheels are Britpart quality @ Walmart prices and like most Britpart junk are made @ the cheapest possible price point. Much of their stuff comes from China. Many here say they see differences in the quality of Rover seals for example as opposed the same part number knock offs. I don't get how there is any confusion between Original Rover and knock off"s on wheels ? Yeah same part numbers but one is oem and one is knock off. I had a set of wheels on my 130 when I bought it and one wheel wasn't a 130/wolf/nato rim. I bought one from someone on the forum and when spin balancing the center of the wheel wasn't welded to the out rim "true" so the wheel had a wobble. The dude @ the tire store pointed out it wasn't the same rim in a couple of ways- same part number though.

Doug, my only reason for posting in this thread was to say:

We do sell both, and define them accordingly(i.e. we don't only sell aftermarket as mentioned earlier)
AND
The wheels Mark is selling are a different part than the typical "classic wolf" wheel, ANR4583PM. He is selling the new version, VPLDW0095PVT. They are a more expensive wheel, I have yet to see one NIB. I think that may be where the confusion comes from.

Zach, thanks for helping clear it up. I just wanted to know the difference in his wheels and the others I have seen. I think the clarification helps Himalaya so people know he isn't trying to overcharge and is offering lets say Wolf 2.0 wheels.

When using an analogy, you usually describe a situation that is parallel in one emphasized aspect.... I was not in any way referring to any perceived social value of authenticity... What I was referring to was that some people prefer an original item to a replica, even in the case that the replica may be identical or even superior e.g. Heritage grills... So when you use the analogy "like sucking a golf ball down a garden hose", you are not insinuating that the thing that the item is passing through is fifty feet long and green, nor are you suggesting that the object in motion is white and solid...

What I was referring to was the civilian version of the wolf wheel vs the actual rim that is fitted on the wolf trucks. Furthermore, Zack, who is a representative of RN on these boards (and a welcomed member of our community) has repeatedly stated that they are not the same thing.

But I think that is the confusion.

Zack is saying the genuine ANR4583PM is the wheels that were used on the Wolfs prior to 2007 and that the VPLDW0095PVT is the newer version. AFAIK, current trucks use Blindo alloys and not steel wheels at all....

Himalaya is saying the ANR4583PM is Land Rover's civilian version and VPLDW0095PVT is the military version.

As to which is correct, I have no clue and it is not clear what are the physical differences between the wheels.

I would SPECULATE that the military version is a beefed up version of the civilian one I.e. Thicker steel, a stronger alloy, riveted vs welded..... I would be interested to actually know what the difference in spec is.

Agree - I would love to know what the differences are between the ANR4583PM and VPLDW0095PVT.

I'm wondering if the VPLDW0095PVT is the one that came on our last Puma, but don't know for sure. It's not in our system yet, maybe I could get one in to compare.
