I have them piled up behind my garage so could check for a part no' on the inside as discussed; there isa Rover part number stamped into one of the spokes so definitely Rover! :clapping

The five spokes with the Rover badge are genuine rover wheels manufactured in 93-94 in Cardiff and were fitted to 216Gti SOHC late models.

i just found a pair of these in my lock-up.Pics to foloow.
They are almost identical to the 215gti DOHC alloys but they do not have the legless starfish in the middle, they take the standard Rover badge.
One of the alloys looks new but has tiny scratches on the spoke paintwork. The other has very slight kerb damage.
Will be put a listing here soon as I have pics.
