Correct centre bore for defender alloys

Hi what is the correct centre bore for defender alloys I have seen them go from 113mm to 117mm does this matter to much. Also what is minimum load rating for 110 alloys.

Thanks

Andy

So long as the bore is at least big enough it doesn't matter. It doesn't use the bore to centre them or take any load so it's not critical.

As for wheel rating, the maximum rear axle rating of a 110 is 1980kg:

So the absolute minimum rating for a wheel would be 990kg. A worst case scenario would be cross axled at full GVM so all the weight on one wheel but that's pretty unlikely. Obviously dynamic loading as you hit bumps would take that much higher and cornering will also put more load on the outside wheel.

Alloy wheels are centred by centre bore, steel wheels are centred by nuts. Alloys has only big through hole, not a tapper like steel wheels. The centre bore must be accurate. "Drobek" = The Small One - Discovery 2, "Blufínek" = The Blue Thing - Defender 130, and for me at least Ford Mondeo Smile

MadTom: ah, I didn't know that, thanks Smile

Sorry to have peddled incorrect information, I've only ever used steel wheels.
