[ROVERNET - UK] rostyle wheels

On one car, I have Rostyle wheels. They are steel
wheels, chrome plated, with black accents, and a hole
in the centre for a hub cap such as that installed on
similar MGB wheels.

The Magstar wheels are either Magnesium or Aluminum
sections (up for debate) riveted onto a steel wheel
which carries the tire. The hub is pot metal chrome
plated in two parts.  The second part is a steel
pressing which screws onto the hub from the inside of
the wheel (better thief protection).  The front
surface is flat and has a large Rover motif fixed to a
flat surface (motif in black with gold as the colour
on the Rostyle hub).  The Magstar hub can use the
decals but I would first spray the inside of the hub
centre in black gloss paint before applying the decal
as the decal is smaller than the original.  The black
on black would be a good camouflage.

Hope that helps.
