569204's they are. riveted 1 ton rims.

the ones i wanted were 569203's but id be waiting forever to get a set.

all i need now are tyres and i can get rid of my crappy rangie rims.

how feasible would it be to put tubes into tubeless tyres?

Perfectly feasible. Thing to watch out for is that tubeless tyres can have a label on the inside that if not removed will eventually chafe the tube. My 101 is on XLs with tubes in and i've run a series 3 before with tubes in tubeless tyres no problem

i've got XZY's on wolf rims on my 110. i got them (new) from e-bay although you don't often see them new.

i'm about to get a second spare XZY from vass complete with rim. they say the wear is about 70%. i can let you know the condition if you're interested. i have been quoted around £70 which for a tyre on a wolf rim i would say is quite reasonable.

i would agree with others that these are long lasting, mine are showing little wear after a year. they are also heavy with the weight of one on a wolf rim coming in at nearly 30 kg.

got my wheel and tyre today. perfectly happy. the tyre is a little worn, but no more than my existing ones and has loads of tread left. rim in good condition with slight surface rust here and there. again in no worse condition than mine (in fact better than some of them). will paint white at some point. all up price was £111 inc delivery to NE scotland. when you add up the price of a tyre from somewhere, a rim from somewhere else, delivery from them both plus VAT, plus having it mounted and balanced i think it's not bad. plus its a genuine landrover rim not a britpart copy.
