From here

All Freelander wheels have five-stud fixings and are designed to combine style with toughness and practicality. Original-equipment tire specifications were specially developed in conjunction with the suppliers to give an optimized combination of pavement and off-road performance.

Looking on ebay RRS wheels LOOK to be five stud so I assume the answer is yes they will fit, not 100% sure though!

A bit to generalistic a statement, that!

About as useful as saying that because RRS wheels are 5 stud they will fit a 1948 Series 1 and my old Mk2 Granada!

No -- D3/L322 etc wheels will definitely NOT fit an 02 Freelander. I'll dig out the PCD info when I get home.

Number of holes is quite important too - I really struggled to get those six stud Shogun rims on to my Discovery but after a while with the electric drill I got them on :D

I am also fairly sure they won't fit... I think D3 stud spacing is somewhere between Freelander and "proper" Land Rover wheels.

But will they fit Deano's granny???

Has this thread turned into geriatric porn? :moglite:

Is Deano young enough to still have a granny?

Obviously if it looks like it fits, then of course it will do. :ph34r:

Ah sanity at last.

Aaaah - teen spirit :rolleyes:

Les.

RRS and D3 are basically the same vehicle under the skin as far as chassis and drivetrain goes. Peer under the back end of a RRS and then under the back end of a D3 and you will see what I mean.

Have a look on fleabay, there are many auctions for Jag Xtype wheels which DO fit. I know, I have a set of 205/16 fitted to mine - much better traction.

just had a look on ebay and it would apear that the jag x type wheels are 5x108 where the freelander are 5x114 so the jag wheels wont fit properly but in looking further into it a lot of jap wheels have the correct pcd and offset so i will look for some jap wheels for my wifes car

A large number of Honda parts are used in the freelander 1 so its no suprise that some are in the F2

the racers steering bosses are from a civic

Well the Disco 3 has the same stud pattern as the BMW X5. Seen alot of D3's in Aus with X5 wheels on .

I have heard that the 02 Freelander (year) will fit on to some fords. Bloke wanted to buy some of me for a ford bager as the wheels made the car taller. He told me they fit fords. But i have never tested it. But the ford ones should fit the freelander if it is the case

A quick google reveals that several Japanese models share the 114.3mm PCD with the freelander. Latest Impreza 2006 onwards for example. Most imprezas get aftermarket wheels fitted so might be a few cheap sets out there?
