This LRO reader emailed LRO.firstname.lastname@example.org to ask Harry Holtom about fitting Wolf Wheels to his Land Rover One Ten.
I’d like to fit Wolf wheels to my 1988 One Ten: will the wheel studs be long enough? The front axle has discs, the rear has drums. I’m sure I’ve read that this set-up on a 90 would need longer studs on the rear, but as the One Ten has the
Salisbury axle does this apply?
Also, are Wolf wheels suitable for tubeless tyres? I want to use 235/85 R16 tyres instead of 7.50/16s.

Even with a Salisbury rear axle the wheel stud is too short for Wolf rims, though many – even the military – use them with the shorter studs. The longer stud (FRC7577) costs about £20 for Genuine Parts, or £4 each for pattern. Zeus Engineering (01297 300010) sells long studs (Z 5013/A) for around £80 a set (as of 2016).
Wolf rims are 6.5in wide and are suitable for tubeless 235/85 R16s. Part number for the tubeless version is ANR4583PM (black); ANR4583WH (White).
