I have always felt SD1 wheels look too modern for a P6, but that is my 
opinion. The kit to mount thespare wheel includes an aluminum spacer several 
inches thick. You might have to make a thicker spacer, which could actually 
be of hardwood, if that is easier than aluminum, and you might have to 
modify the screw retainer, I am not sure.One question; do you have the 
bootlid that was made for the spare tire mount? It has 3 braces below the 
skin, to support the weight. The standard bootlid does not. This bootlid was 
standard on the US 3500S(Another of a hundred little differences). If you 
want to see a good picture of it, go to my eBay store(Old English Motor 
Company), and look on the Rover section. I have one for sale that is well 
illustrated. I also have spare tire mounting pieces, if you or anyone needs 
them, and may have a screw retainer from an SD1, if you do not. James Dean, 
Ft. Lauderdale.

Hi Roverists:

Has anyone fashioned an adapter to mount an SD1 cast aluminum wheel
in the spare tire mounting position, as well as the boot/trunk
position on a P6B?
