Hi guys, I acquired these wheels with my 1275gt over ten years ago and have never found out what they were originally off, my thoughts were they metro related, I'm not sure,
Any help would be much appreciated?
Thanks.
Mike

They are from limited edition Ritz and chelsea's, could also be bought as an optional extra. They have centre caps to but are difficult to find.

I thought they were Metro Turbo, but they are slightly different. As above, Ritz.

My Mini came with the same rims. Since the old rims were 12" and had way too big of profile, the rims would rub the wheel wells. I have switched over to 10" Minilites and sold the old rims on Kijiji. (I also painted the wheel wells where there was bare metal from rubbing!)
