Default New wheels

Got a set of Land Rover steels 8x16 with 225x16x 50 Toyos. 'ROADSTER' suggested these wheels a while back, had to get the CB slightly bored out but now happy with the look. Centre caps are from aerosol cans, the plastic tops, just happen to have four black ones in the garage, they fit perfectly :-)

Are those the Modular steel wheels ? I've thought of them as they have the right PCD and are quite a good budget option. Maybe black centre with outer silver rim would look best ? I think they come in a chrome option too.

They look good, im glad they worked out.
I chose another route, banded steels but a little more retro modern

These should fill those big rear arches, and I intend to fit black 3 eared dummy spinners

Here's the ebay link Roadster originally posted.

The offset is 25 which is good, but the CB is 70.1mm so has to be bored out to 72.5mm. Because of the design the front wheels need a 5mm spacer otherwise they foul the brake caliper.
Had thought about banded wheels as well but settled for these.
