Land Rover 130 tipper Alloy wheels

Recommended Posts

Resently bought a puma 130 and it has steel wheels, my mate has a set of five spoke disco alloys.

My question, will they fit and will they be strong enough to cope with the weight of carrying chip and dragging my först st6

 

Many thanks

I was warned off putting the alloys on mine, so I did anyway, along with 30mm alloy spacers, they are still ok 10 years on despite carrying thousands of tons to my yard.

 

Time and weight tested :thumbup1:

They aren't strong enough for a 130, if they are genuine landie alloys they will likely have the load rating cast into them, but if it's the ones I am thinking of it's 1000kg

I think the only alloys with a load rating that makes them suitable for a 130 are the Blindos (available from Silverline) as fitted by Ricardo to military WMIK and Snatch Landrovers.

 

An expensive option.

The ZU alloys are with exception of the ones in above post only after markets with the correct load rating most landrover alloys are not rated and dispite a lack of problems using them I wouldn't like to make a claim with under rated wheels ...... Insurance company's will wriggle at he slightest things nowadays

Do I understand this right, if the alloys are rated at 1000kg x 4 wheels = 4000kgs

 

If you have weight on more than 3500kgs your over weight anyway and wouldn't be legal in the event of a claim.

It's the rear axle weight that is the problem, which is over 2000kg

You could put them on the front axle only and it would be ok :)

 

A lot of the steel aftermarket wheels aren't officially suitable for a 130 either, I had to hunt around to find the right rating for mine.
