undefined :lol: Hi Guys

I'm new here so please forgive any mistakes,
I have recently bought a couple of defender 90's
(I'm going to strip both down to floor and make one good one from the two)
I have seen a number of Defender 90's with nice alloy wheels
(presumably from a disco) I was just wondering which series disco alloys will fit on my defender,I have read things about people buying nice alloys for their defenders only to find that the stud spacing is wrong.

Please help

Thanx for listening
(no doubt I'll be back soon with lots more questions as I begin the strip down)

Welcome Predator and congrats on the purchases.

In the US the bolt pattern on the 94-95 & 97 D90s are the same as the bolt pattern on the 94-99 Discovery Series I.

Hope this helps.

Alloys from a 'series 1' Discovery (89-98) are the same PCD.

BUT... at the age of your 90 (unless it's modified) alloys won't fit.
They will foul the rear brake drums, some aftermarket alloys will fit.

Also the wheel-studs & nuts need changing.
Studs for alloy wheels have a shallow slot machined into the end face.
Nuts are completly differant, as they have a captive (rotating) washer to clamp the nave of the wheel to the hub.
Nuts for a steel-wheel will chew the hell out of an alloy rim

Alternatively

Change the front studs, chuck the rear axle & reaplce it with an alloy compatible Range Rover derivative (hence gaining disc brakes as well)
Ought to be loads on E-Bay
