    I've got a narrow track Sankey trailer which I swapped for an old Disco that I was given for an afternoon's work. It is in ok condition but the tub has a few holes and I would like to redo the electrics etc. Anyway I've got all that lot covered but used the trailer to shift a ton of rock and found that the tyres are absolutely shot and cracked. On closer inspection the wheels are not brilliant either so what wheels will actually fit on a Sankey? Are they standard series wheels? Will any defender wheels fit? It would be helpful if I can get an alternative and then fit that whilst doing up the originals or do up the alternative whilst keeping the originals to move it.....

    Yep, iirc the originals should be 6.50 16s on 5.5j rims and the only difference to later Fender rims is the offset and width.

    Fairly common practice to fit the same to the trailer as on yer Landy so one spare covers both.

    So the offset change will not be a problem?

    I've got bigger tyres on the landy so not sure about putting them on it.

    Thanks for replying....

    I doubt the offset on any standard Landy rims would cause any issue

    Still can't quite bring myself to call alloys standard :confused:
