Actually there may be a slight further twist, Bill.  I think Magnum 
500's were also supplied to Buick as "Rallye"  wheels and these with the 
GM bolt pattern might fit a standard Rover hub.  This would need to be 
confirmed of course, and I don't know if Buicks would have used 14 
wheels of the right width and offset.
