17” Steels

Hi Chaps,

I really like the 17” steels wearing 265/70r17 BFK AT’a fitted to an ‘Urban Truck’ displayed at the London Classic Car Show today. Do you know whether they would fit with standard suspension?

Over all, that tyre size is the same as a standard 235/85R16 so yes, they would fit with standard suspension.

I was looking for something similar too. Was the tread of the tires out of the arches?
They are not on urban's website. Did you see anything about the ET of the wheels?

There were no visible markings on the outside of the wheels. They looked a fair bit wider than the standard boosts but didn’t appear to protude too far beyond the wheel arches. 2012 2.2 110 DC XS

I love the look of these wheels, just wish they were 18" and not 17"! Being an Urban Wheel they will have a good offset so no spacers required and id say they will fit fine with standard suspension! 2011 Defender DCPU 2.2

There doesn't appear to be much room in those arches for any wheel articulation.

You would be surprised, I have the same setup. Axle droop is the same It's just compression that is reduced. The wheels still go up inside the arches as per standard Thumbs Up 2002 90 Td5 Station Wagon

I would say that looking at the amount of hub sticking out the centre there could possibly be a wheel spacer added

Is the rolling radius unchanged from the standard wheel, I have a height restriction in my garage so am cautious changing the wheels above standard.

Am I missing a trick? They just look like steel modular wheels painted body colour.

Available all over the place for under £50 a pop?
