Title: Discovery wheels on a defender
Post by: phil c on April 23, 2013, 06:27:54
Will 200tdi 5 spoke discovery alloy wheels fit onto my LR90 (defender) 88reg truck or will they foul on the drive flange?

Thanks in advance
Phil c

Drums or discs on the rear?

There's a good chance they won't then as I remember something from years ago about the rear drums being an issue.
It may well have just been the flanges, in which case you'll need to remove some material from the inside of the wheels so they sit flush & square on the hub.

Not just the drums, the front hubs won't either without spacers or a bit of "work".

I'd be careful TBH as your insewerance might class it as an engineered modification.
