these wheels arrived yesterday

won them on ebay for £102, brand new still in the box
there genuine rover 600 wheels and when rover were still going they were £178+vat a wheel(so £210 a wheel)
will look great on my 600 diesel.
i already have alloys on the car, but one is buckled really bad and cant find anyone to sell me just 1 wheel(breakers will only sell sets).

they have more for sale if anyone else is interested

If they are genuine 600 they wont fit a 400.

600 is Honda based and uses Jap stud pattern.

400 is standard Rover

That's true - but whats the relevance?
You beat me to it! I read that link and everything presuming the seller would have written "may also fit a 400" or something, but alas, it appears that the comment has just come out of nowhere!

Hadn't noticed the posters id description.

Just concerned that others might think they'd be suitable for anything other than 600

They are "City Ten Spoke" wheels and were available in the fitting for both 400 and 600.
They are quite rare on the 400 and I believe were only offered for about 18 months. I have these on my 400.
They look great when clean, but are rather vulnerable to kerbing etc.

i was not sure about them last night when i read this thread, but by pure coincidence a 400 parked outside our shop today with those wheels on ,and they look much better in the "flesh" as it were, nice choice shaken.
