Hi Dirk,

The stud circle and size on 3500S hubs is the same as on 2000's and 
SD1's.  The Rostyle wheel was an accessory for the 2000TC in the US and 
it fits the 3500S too.  I haven't seen the Rostyle specifically listed 
as a North American market option for the 3500S, but this wheel found 
its way onto many US and UK 3500 and 3500S cars.  The Rostyle rim is 
wider than the plain steel 2000 wheel, i.e. it may be the same width as 
the standard 3500 wheel.

I would have thought that the Rostyle wheel was available later than the 
alloy-center Magstar, but it sounds like that differs from Aidrian's 
experience.  The Magnum 500 was only available on North American cars 
(on Fords, Buicks, and Dodges too) -- it seems that this wheel was 
offered by Rover North America until the similar-looking Rostyle became
