Helium adsorbed on C_{60}^{+} and C_{70}^{+} exhibits phenomena akin to helium on graphite. Mass spectra suggest that commensurate layers form when all carbon hexagons and pentagons are occupied by one He each, but that the solvation shell does not close until 60 He atoms are adsorbed on C_{60}^{+}, or 62 on C_{70}^{+}. Molecular dynamics simulations of C_{60}He_{n}^{+} at 4 K show that the commensurate phase is solid. Helium added to C_{60}He_{32}^{+} will displace some atoms from pentagonal sites, leading to coexistence of a registered layer of immobile atoms interlaced with a nonregistered layer of mobile atoms.
