Steel wheels for my 90
« on: November 26, 2019, 06:33:09 PM »
Looking for steel wheels, 16 inch, for my 90. Wide enough to take 235-85R16 tire.
Yes, I believe that tire size has been squeezed onto a Series 5 1/2 in wide rim, but is it safe?
Prefer 6 or 7 in wide.  Donít really expect anyone has some good ones going spare, but itís worth a try.  I have had TWO leaking air through the rim in the past week, and now have no spare. 
Located near Lockeport NS,  could pick up in Halifax or Annapolis Valley....

Ordered some from 3 Brothers in Ontario, who are now stocking quite a lot of Defender bits.
16 x 6.5 Wolf-type wheels.
As always, theyíre really friendly and helpful.

I sealed my stock rivetted rims with bead seal...coated the centre section rivets and all   been running tubeless ever since.
