    Default Local offroad wheels that fit Discovery 2

    Hi guys,
    Anyone know of an aftermarket 16" wheelset that's easily available to fit the Discovery 2?
    Wanting a change, but it seems there's nothing easily available.
    Will a 15" go over the standard brakes?

    I quite like the Mickey Thompson style, but open to options

    Thanks

    16" rims are a standard size for the Discovery 2?

    That is correct. 5x120 PCD which is uncommon

    What rims is yours running on?

    I have a set of 16" rims with BFG AT tyres on, if we can get them to you?

    15" will go, but you won't find 15's in that PCD for the D2. Only was is to get them made up and that is a bit of a costly exercise.

    There's a black set like yours that a contact of mine is selling, but same style.

    Thank you, but looking for something a bit more aggressive

    Jeepman. Perhaps I'm a little slow this morning, but you already have 16" rims?

    I'm struggling to figure out what you're wanting to do?

    I have these. Not my vehicle, just to show the rims.

    To be honest, I don't blame you. That style not the most flattering.

    I have 2 different styles on either D2 and none are those ones, so i'm happy with my alloys for now.

    The style fitted to the facelift XS is in my opinion the best looking, as fitted now to my pre-facelift :-)

    I'm using these sets and must say, I like them both as is. Might just black out the other set.

    The top disco has the mags from the facelift GS model, AFAIK the GS has 7J mags and the XS has 8J mags.

    So would it be better to have the 7J with 33s or the 8J with 33s.

    Currently have:

    7J = 285/75/16
    8J = 275/75/16

    supposed i could swap if there are benefits? although my thinking is that maybe 7J better for fitting in the wheelwells, if it even makes a difference.

    Yes, the 7J will give more clearance in the wheelarches... so.. keep them as you have fitted them.

    Shot, thanks. Also makes a bit more sense.

    Sorry to OP for hijacking the thread with my own queries.

    Not a problem at all, we're all here to learn.
    I like the look of your Disco, but want to go a bit more aggressive. I can get some modulars from Cradock spares, but shipping alone is 350 pounds :/

    I drive Land Rover D3 and a VW T5 Transporter
    They have exactly the same pcd
    The VW kombi. / transporter have 16 and 17 "rims as well that I am sure will work on a D2 or some VW rims

    Correct, the Amarok rims fit apparently, but not quite what I want.
    I found a local shop that sells the Terrafirma modular wheel I like at a good price. No stock at the moment, but I I'll grab a set as soon as they are available.

    Is that a steel wheel? 16"? Weight rated and specified? Very curious to see... and wonder the cost of course.
