Freelander steels compatible??


I've got a mate with a Freelander ( I know, I've told him loads of times to get sensible!!). He's just put some alloys on, and I wondered if his steels from it would fit my fourtrak - Going to test them this week anyway, just wondered if anyone could tell me if they do fit. Also, if it's a go, anyone know a good place in the Midlands area for wheel re-conditioning. Some of the lads at work recommend having them blasted and powder coated - how much should I be paying fir this for 4 wheels.

Could be wronge, but I think

Could be wronge, but I think you'll find they don't fit. Normal Landi certainly doesn't. Suzuki, Lada Niva & CJ (very old) Jeep will.
Also if your going to go to the expence and troble of 'cleaning up' old steelies, I think you might as well bye some new 8 spokes. They arn't that expencive from the 4x4 mags, and come in wider & with better ofsets than basic steels. Much better for stabillity off road.

Any veiws expresed in this thread by me are purely from my own experience, and (sometimes) falible memory. Hope my comments help, but please don't take them as gospel.
