Measuring the 'inset' on a wheel rim.
Wheels for Series Land Rovers is a more complicated topic than you may imagine. The most user-friendly piece of information is probably that all standard Series I, II, IIA and III wheel rims are interchangeable between vehicles (we are excluding here 101's, 1 Tons & 130's). Having said that however, SWB rims should not be put on LWB models as they cannot safely support the larger tyres required for the heavier vehicle load.
