You'd need adaptors obviously, but at 30-40 per wheel it's got to be worth a look . . .

Great idea thanks.

Possibly no need for adapters, if the ID of the rims is the same as mine at that price its worth it just to use the rims on my centres.

A good alternative for anyone looking at banding too.

Some of those wheels don't seem to have any stamped raised area around the Bolt/Stud holes to form a countersink (the Steel wheels on my Daughter's 1300 are like that as well), so it may be possible to just drill five new holes.

The PCD on early Land Rovers/Range Rovers is 5x165.1, so not far off the 5x205 of the early Beetles, or go for the later LR/RR PCDs of 5x114.3 or 5x120 and re-drill for the later Beetle 4-stud PCD (4x130).

At 30, I'm tempted to get one to measure up . . .
