All Landrovers use a 5 studs, therefore they all share the same stud pattern. The cutting is not that of a big of a problem. This will be my first project and want to be ready when everything arrives. I've never heard of anybody having an insurance issue with calipers. These wheels are perfect for offroad and expedition use and provide an excellent platform for a set of winter snow tires! This 8-hole, heavy duty modular steel wheel comes from offroad Rover specialists, Terrafirma, and is manufactured to their rigorous durability specs.
I suspect that was because we were lucky. It doesn't impact the caliper and with all the dirt from the brakes you will not even be able to see it I wouldn't worry about the insurance.

Your insurance might not be to happy if you end up in an at fault accident and have altered your brakes. You would need 4 spacers - one per wheel. Cooper tires don't seem to have rave reviews for offroad. Patient education and explanation is far more helpful than caustic comments.
Too bad no one makes an off road tire in that size. I would use these off road only or at most for the hour drive it takes to get there. Here is the link to spacers: I agree with Don - if you know what you are doing I don't. Hi all - you need to just very very slightly grind the caliper. Your insurance might not be to happy if you end up in an at fault accident and have altered your brakes. Of course if you call your insurance company and ask them 'can I modify my brakes? Your insurance might not be to happy if you end up in an at fault accident and have altered your brakes. I just want to inform people as to the correct use of automotive terms Click to expand.
Had to get he rust scraped out of my eyeball the next day. Does that mean you need to grind 1. Don't worry, we can get you through it. Tire1010 seems to have this size in stock. We simply don't list part 's that we can buy - we stock them. Use no spacer requires significant grinding of the caliper.
It is a bit difficult as there are tons of other lines in that area and thus a regular torch may burn them. There are a fair few variations in LandRover models over the years. If you did, I would think it would be like Michal said and only just a tiny bit - a few seconds with a grinder to relieve a high spot. I've read online that 1. Not to mention, I'm a girl, so modding a vehicle is new to me.
Now the question is, I know that I either have to use spacers or shave the caliper down. If anyone does know why they don't fit I'd like to hear, just out of curiosity. We appreciate your business - buy with confidence! The only snag was that the stud-holes in the Imp wheels were bigger than the stud-holes in Mini wheels, so we used Mini wheelnuts with washers under them. But with most steel wheels that isn't the case. I'm used to just taking my car somewhere and having someone work on it. Jason mentioned it, and sounds like something I should consider.
I think that would give us alot more choice in offroad tire. Not an issue there as it is really slight a millimeter or two to clear the inner wheel. Do I need anything else? It is a bit difficult as there are tons of other lines in that area and thus a regular torch may burn them. It could, but obviously you're just looking to remove a little bit of material, not half the caliper. I was young and very stupid, got a piece of the caliper grinding in my eye. If you want to go that route and don't have the tools I'm sure plenty of people can lend them to you for an afternoon including myself. I can't understand the current fashion for fitting big wheels and low profile tyres to offroaders, they just don't look right nevermind what they do for offroad ability.
If this is a long way out like using spacers then excess strain can be put on wheel bearings. Doesn't seem like it would be a big deal. That's how I did mine. Do t forget to wear safety glasses if you do it. I realise I may be coming across as pedantic, and I apologise if it seems I'm trying to play a game of one upmanship, I'm not.
