Free style alloys on a defender

Hi just bought some free style alloys for my defender and was just wondering if they will fit over heavy duty drive flanges ?

First off what age and type of defender is it as older drum brake rear axles are not compatible also regardless of that a 110 is too heavy for freestyle wheels even if they do fit.

Ok. It's now a question of trial and error unfortunately as some hd flanges are bigger and others are just better material. Sorry I can't be more specific.
